A century after the Great War broke out, studies on politics
of memory and commemoration have grown into a vast and vital
academic field. This book approaches the theme „monument
and memory“ from architectural, literary, philosophical and
theological perspectives. Drawing on diverse sources – from
the Augustine to Freud, from early photographs to
contemporary urban monuments – the contributing authors
probe the intersections between memory and trauma, past and
present, monuments and memorial practices, religious and
secular, remembrance and forgetfulness.
