Public Space and Social Memory in Vancouver
This vivid account of the creation of three public monuments in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside offers unique insights into the links between power, public space, and social memory and asks us to reconsider the nature and role of civic art.
A Japanese Canadian Memorial Project
This book explores how Japanese Canadians living in an isolated mountainous valley in the province of British Columbia worked together to transform the village where they lived for over fifty years from a site of political violence into a space for remembrance.
A fascinating book that situates local places and local expressions of public memory such as statues, photographs, and oral stories at the centre of identity formation in twentieth-century Canada and beyond.
