  • Place, Memory, and Justice: Critical Perspectives on Sites of Conscience

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Justine Lloyd, Linda Steele
      Pages: 144 - 160
      Abstract: Space and Culture, Volume 25, Issue 2, Page 144-160, May 2022.
      In disrupting the singularity of official histories and memorials, some scholars, activists, and members of marginalized populations have approached memory as a concept that accommodates a multiplicity of subjugated experiences, knowledges, and narratives of place and event, and thus gives rise to a set of memory practices that serve as useful tools for anti-oppression and social justice activism. For these reasons, this memory work has a clear spatial dimension and focuses on place. One such movement in this vein, referred to as “Sites of Conscience,” forms the focus of this special issue. This editorial introduction to this special issue of Space and Culture takes Sites of Conscience as a prism through which to consider relations between history, memory, politics, temporality, ethics, and justice within a spatial framework. Given the increasing pressures to simplify and “purify” national narratives and to pathologize multiple forms of difference, we urgently need activist scholarship on the salient relations between place, history, memory, memorialization, and social justice.

  • Measures of Restraint: The Remaking of Carceral Space in the Postwar
           United States

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Steven Niedbala
      Abstract: Space and Culture, Ahead of Print.
      This article describes how architects working for the U.S. Bureau of Prisons developed a universal technical vocabulary for prison construction in the years following the end of the Second World War. Employing the neutral, streamlined aesthetic and advanced techniques of contemporary architecture, the new style negated the traditional formal distinction between the prison and extra-institutional space. Penal reformers celebrated the new institutions as signifying a shift away from the brutal, dreary institutions of the last century toward a more humane, efficient system of penal treatment. The neutralization of the prison, however, belied the subsumption of carceral violence into the form of the institution itself. The technical decomposition of the human form in contemporary design practice refigured punishment as a series of gradually intensifying strictures.

  • The Geomediatized Geographies of Marginalized Older Digital Citizens

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Maja Klausen
      Abstract: Space and Culture, Ahead of Print.
      In this article, I approach the Danish digitalization strategy as a Lefebvrian conceived space, focusing on how its ideology and spatial codes denote a normative vision for how citizens should and ought to be. Drawing on the non-media-centric concept of geomediatization and a feminist new materialist approach to gentrification as assemblage, the article explores the lived spaces of older (64+) marginalized citizens living in Sydhavnen, Copenhagen, an area currently undergoing gentrification. By focusing on the interplay between digitalization of the public sector and urban gentrification, the article sheds light on an emergent power geometry in which the potential for belonging is carved out differently for different citizens. In doing so, the article critically explores the more-than-representational geography of the digitalization strategy and contributes to the budding field of geomediatization studies.

  • The Community as a Liminal Correctional Space

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Jordan Anderson
      Abstract: Space and Culture, Ahead of Print.
      Throughout the Anglophone advanced liberal democracies, punishment is increasingly creeping past the limits of traditional finite sentences and moving beyond the walls of the prison. “Regulatory” mechanisms enforcing limitations on releasees’ use of space beyond the prison walls have increased, and net widening due to technological advancement has resulted in sentenced individuals being punished within the community. At the same time, increasing numbers of released individuals are unable to be reintegrated into the community due to long-term regulatory limitations on their movement in both public and private space. Elements of the architecture of punishment continue to be reshaped and expanded by postsentence regulation, and this article explores the particular experience of released sex offenders being regulated within the community in two examples of “sex offender enclaves.” Drawing upon the experience of the community of Miracle Village (Florida, United States), as well as qualitative interviews conducted in the community of Ōtāhuhu (Auckland, New Zealand), this article begins to map the spread of the correctional apparatus beyond the prison walls and examines the way that risks are concentrated and delegated to certain communities, while the state simultaneously attempts to purge those thought to constitute the gravest risks from other communities.

  • Who Has the Right to the Coworking Space' Reframing Platformed
           Workspaces as Elite Territory in the Geomedia City

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Karin Fast
      Abstract: Space and Culture, Ahead of Print.
      Current research suggests that coworking spaces (CWS) both respond to and legitimize work precarization. This is an important critique. Less acknowledged, however, is the fact that CWS also (re)produce eliteness. Thus, to the aim of offering perspectives that remain underrepresented in CWS research, I here scrutinize CWS as promotors of class privilege. I build my case on the premise that class privilege has to do with more than merely economic superiority and seek to dismantle, in particular, the role of geomedia technologies in the (re) production of CWS eliteness. With clues derived from a literature review as well as analyses of real-life cases, I here recognize CWS as places of elite (non-)consumption, as hubs of elite mobility, as nodes in elite networks, and, ultimately, as elite territories in the (super-)gentrified geomedia city. I end my article by reflecting on the dialectics of CWS eliteness, thereby suggesting how precariousness and eliteness are interlinked.

  • “Google Is Not a Good Neighbor”: The Google Campus Protests in
           Berlin

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Maren Hartmann
      Abstract: Space and Culture, Ahead of Print.
      When Google announced, in October 2018, that it would not pursue its plan to open a Google Campus in Berlin-Kreuzberg, the local anti-gentrification protesters were triumphant. The retreat was widely seen to be the result of a 2-year-long fight between the tech company and local activist groups. Next to the usual gentrification issues, the protests had additionally addressed what Google as a company stands for and focused on their data policies and the underlying (economic) rationale. The article asks what role this additional critique played in the protests. It will begin with a brief introduction to the key concepts before retracing the history of the planned Google Campus in Berlin as well as of the protests against it.

  • Bachelard, Besson and Bakhtin: A Dialogical Discourse on the Potential of
           Intimate Space

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Robert Brown
      Abstract: Space and Culture, Ahead of Print.
      Bachelard’s The Poetics of Space ponders the image of the wardrobe. Fixated by the figurative nature of its inner space, for Bachelard, the wardrobe is intimate, secret, and ordered. It is a space of protected memories, accessed more through the imagination than the everyday. Besson’s The Fifth Element opens up intimate space. Its external envelope offers no impenetrable boundary but instead a permeable threshold. The Fifth Element suggests an alternative for intimate space, where the incongruous, even conflicting, come together. Such a possibility evokes Bakhtin’s construct of dialogism, which reveled in the potential of dialogue between one and other, across both literal and figurative thresholds. This article brings together disparate strands from philosophy, film, and architecture. Through their juxtaposition, it will consider the potential for a new perspective on intimate space as dialogical space, in which private and public might meet, interact and even embrace, and so see themselves anew.

  • “Keep Your Wheels Off the Furniture”: The Marginalization of Street
           Skateboarding in the City of Melbourne’s “Skate Melbourne Plan”

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Patrick O’Keeffe, Lulu Fawdon Jenkins
      Abstract: Space and Culture, Ahead of Print.
      The City of Melbourne’s Skate Melbourne Plan purports to be skateboarder-centered, focusing on developing skate spaces for skateboarders. Drawing on research analyzing street skateboarders’ production of space and the importance of public spaces to street skateboarding, we examine how the Skate Melbourne Plan recognizes and supports street skateboarders’ capacity to skate in city environments. We suggest that rather than developing street skateboarding in the Melbourne Central Business District (CBD), the Skate Melbourne Plan reproduces negative constructions of young people who engage in street skateboarding as deviant and delinquent, by marginalizing and delegitimizing street skateboarding in public spaces.

  • Force Fields of Montaña Verde: Spatializing the Commons in the
           City-as-Oeuvre

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Hanka Otte, Louis Volont
      Abstract: Space and Culture, Ahead of Print.
      This article assesses what a spatial expression of the commons might entail. It asks, “How is ‘common space’ produced when the initiative thereto lies at the institutional rather than at the grassroots level'” The article first proposes a dyadic understanding of common space in terms of endogenous and exogenous commoning: internal governance and external negotiation, respectively. Thereafter, Lefebvre’s spatial triad is mobilized as an ensemble of sometimes conflictive and sometimes complementary “force fields” that act upon these two variants of common space. The article takes as a central case study Montaña Verde (“Green Mountain”), a wooden arch that was built and then dismantled as part of the “Antwerp Baroque 2018” festival. Results showcase how a multiple set of significations was projected upon Montaña Verde: as urban green space, as museum domain, as common-pool resource, and as a means to recast public space to collective use.

  • The Gentrification of Airbnb: Closing Rent Gaps Through the
           Professionalization of Hosting

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Jelke R. Bosma, Niels van Doorn
      Abstract: Space and Culture, Ahead of Print.
      In this article, we argue that it is analytically productive to think about the professionalization of hosting on Airbnb in terms of (commercial) gentrification. More precisely, we believe that rent gap theory is helpful to advance our understanding of why and how professionalized hosting has become an increasingly salient phenomenon and for centering the active role of Airbnb as a platform operator. We develop the notion of platform-scale rent gaps to explain the economic logic that drives Airbnb to professionalize its hosts and gentrify its platform. We then discuss Airbnb’s professionalization programs and tools, showing how some of its most substantial resources primarily cater to large-scale property managers who, like Airbnb itself, seek to identify and close rent gaps on the platform. This consequently creates the conditions for uneven business development opportunities among hosts, which we illustrate by focusing on how two different types of hosts have sought to professionalize their business in Berlin. Finally, we conclude by speculating on the relationship between the gentrification of the Airbnb platform and urban gentrification.

  • From the Tag to the #Hashtag: Street Art, Instagram, and Gentrification

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Erika Polson
      Abstract: Space and Culture, Ahead of Print.
      One of the key trends that can be seen in gentrifying environments is the use of “street art” murals, which are increasingly connected to official government-sanctioned “street art festivals,” to decorate the walls of urban neighborhoods—sometimes located in officially designated “arts” or “creative districts.” In this article, I consider the role that Instagram practices have played in the popularization of such districts. In a case study of Denver’s RiNo Art District, I argue that as street art is used to turn everyday urban environments into sites of adventurous exploration, the sharing of images from these discoveries on social media helps to make territories more familiar and thus more open to socioeconomic change. This case is considered as an example of how mediatization is connected to gentrification processes.

  • (Lived) Spaces of Belonging, Culture, and Gender: Spatial Practices of
           Home for Syrian Women in Istanbul

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Pınar Sezginalp Özçetin, Susan Beth Rottmann
      Abstract: Space and Culture, Ahead of Print.
      Combining architectural and cultural anthropological approaches, this study explores the domestic lived spaces of Syrian women in Istanbul to understand how they create belonging in a new social and architectural setting and perform gender roles. We analyze data gathered from several types of dwellings according to the concept of spatial practice of Henri Lefebvre to explore how women’s daily life praxis fosters feelings of contentment and safety, and how they reflect on their previous homes in Syria through a lens of nostalgia. At the same time, we explore how houses in Syria are remembered via reflections on spatial changes. Methodologically, we rely on semi-structured interviews and mental map drawings of houses in Istanbul and reminisced houses from Syria. Ultimately, this research provides a fine-grained portrait of the (lived) space of Syrian women, showing how they reconstruct domestic lives through past/Syrian and current/Turkish spatial practices.

  • Dumpster Diving: Aquatic Leisure, DIY Aesthetics, and Performance of
           Public Space in Macro Sea’s Mobile Pools

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Yasmine Marie Jahanmir
      Abstract: Space and Culture, Ahead of Print.
      In August 2010, as part of Summer Streets, a citywide initiative to celebrate “New York City’s most valuable public space [its streets],” the Department of Transportation installed three mobile pools, made from dumpsters, on Park Avenue between 40th and 41st streets. The choice of dumpster swimming pools as keystone attractions for 2010 Summer Streets is not only testament to the need for a summer cool-down but also participates in the long history that public pools have played in urban planning as markers of a community’s health and well-being. Through tracing the mobile pools’ connections to the Do-It-Yourself (DIY)-aesthetic practice and public swimming pool history, I argue that although the dumpster pools were intended as a popular intervention to reconfigure socio-spatial relationships, the effectiveness of that intervention was varied. The pools recapitulated notions of private leisure and failed to participate in the actual city surroundings—allowing privileged participants to perform an ethical commitment to re-use and public good without promoting change for the actual communities in need.

  • Gentrification and the Right to the Geomedia City

      Authors: Maren Hartmann, André Jansson
      Abstract: Space and Culture, Ahead of Print.
      This article introduces the special issue “Gentrification and the right to the geomedia city.” The aim of the special issue is to make up for the lack of research on how gentrification is shaped and underpinned by the normalization of various media platforms that currently define urban life—and what these media mean to the resistance to gentrification. Building on the seven contributions that make up the special issue, this article introduces the concept of the geomedia city as a discriminatory regime of dwelling. The geomedia city refers not only to the digital infrastructures built into urban environments—circulating and embedding data—but more crucially to the social and cultural dynamics whereby certain norms, skills, and forms of capital (and thus people) are legitimized (or marginalized) in the city. As such, geomedia constitutes a territorializing force that lubricates urban displacement processes by defining who has the right to belong where.

      Abstract: Space and Culture, Ahead of Print.
      The impact of gentrification in cities is well established. The continuous evolution in geolocation and social media is intensifying the contest between competing stakeholder claims to authenticity about gentrifying places. In this article, we examine the way that different geolocative social media define a struggle over the rights to authenticity in a rapidly gentrifying neighborhood in Brisbane, Australia. Local voices are often submerged by the voices of commercial imperative, particularly when the rent gap in gentrifying neighborhoods begins to attract abstract capital with a vested interest in commodifying local culture. We use Instagram and Facebook to critically examine how the hegemonic influence of social media can construct a gentrifying neighborhood in immaterial space and argue that these constructions work to eradicate the complex array of communities that comprise this neighborhood in material space.

  • The Eroticism of Logistics

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: David W. Hill
      Abstract: Space and Culture, Ahead of Print.
      This article draws attention to the reproduction of logistical power in what is identified as the eroticism of logistics. Eroticism here describes the way that transmission is understood as a seamless conveyance of goods or an intimate communication across a surface. It is first argued that this eroticism is found in attempts to define modernity as logistical that ought to be rejected in favor of a more grounded account of rerouting. It is then demonstrated that this latter account best accommodates the findings of critical logistics studies, where logistical spaces are shown to be fractious and the movement of goods far from smooth. It is finally argued that while an erotic principle of transmission lends itself to a reductive account of logistics that sustains its violence, a postal account of transmission better captures the experience of getting the goods while situating logistics within a critical space.

  • An Angel for the Dead: Sonia Bermúdez and the Cemetery “People
           Like Us”

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Jimena Perry
      Abstract: Space and Culture, Ahead of Print.
      In 1997, Sonia Bermúdez created the cemetery and foundation People Like Us to fulfill what she believes is God’s command: to help others. Sonia is a professional thanatologist who lives in the Colombian Department of La Guajira, in the desertic northeast region, bordering Venezuela, on the Caribbean Coast. At her graveyard, she buries the No Name, N.N., the victims of the country’s multifaceted violence, the homeless people, and those who live in the fringes of society. Since 2016, also, due to an increase in immigration of Venezuelans into Colombia, Sonia started to entomb citizens from the neighboring country, and during 2020, she has done the same for individuals who died from Covid-19. Following her deep religious faith, Sonia’s goal is to provide a dignified burial to those who cannot afford to have one. She does not entertain thoughts about the nationality, history, or economic status of those she ensepulchers, instead Sonia believes that everybody has the right to be put to rest in a decorous way. In this article, I address the aims and nature of People Like Us to explore how this space challenges the conventional dichotomy of official or serious memories versus non-official or trivial ones in Colombia. Mainly analyzing Sonia’s religious beliefs reflected in the way in which she handles and treats the bodies buried in the cemetery, I explore the interactions between local and national memories, to shed light on the “differential local futures in a global world,” which are dynamic, non-binary, and non-linear.

  • The Persistence of the Victorian Prison: Alteration, Inhabitation,
           Obsolescence, and Affirmative Design

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Dominique Moran, Matt Houlbrook, Yvonne Jewkes
      Abstract: Space and Culture, Ahead of Print.
      Prior scholarship tracing the origins and architecture of prisons has tended to focus on how and why prisons are built—what they are intended to achieve and their construction as an expression of the punitive philosophies of their age. It does not consider how prisons persist as time passes, perhaps beyond their anticipated operational life span, and into “obsolescence.” Focusing on the archetypal Victorian prison, and considering the alteration and inhabitation of such prisons through time, this article critically reinterprets notions of obsolescence in the built environment and explores an enduring cultural attachment to a particular and arguably archaic material manifestation of punishment.

      Abstract: Space and Culture, Ahead of Print.
      Representing more than 300 sites in 65 countries, the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience represents a movement of historic sites, museums and memory initiatives that commit to universal principles of human rights and the power of history to create positive change. The Coalition is built on the belief that history is intensively local and personal—and that as a global network, members can benefit from exchanges around the globe, building a worldwide movement.

  • The Blacktown Native Institution as a Living, Embodied Being: Decolonizing
           Australian First Nations Zones of Trauma Through Creativity

      Abstract: Space and Culture, Ahead of Print.
      In Australia, the trauma of the forced removal, institutionalization, and attempted assimilation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children under Stolen Generations policies is rarely publicly memorialized, especially at the children’s homes and missions where these things took place. Darug Nation reclamation of the former site of the Blacktown Native Institution in Western Sydney entails, however, a distinct memorialization of the land as a powerful identity through restoring ceremonial and land care cultural practices that predate invasion. The Darug activation of this place pivots on a powerful Aboriginal ethos of land as “Country”—a living being or spirit. We also contend that this relationship to land is better defined by the expansive term “zone” rather than the colonial, territorial notion of “site.” It is in this context that Darug Traditional Owners, other First Nations artists, and Stolen Generations survivors are generating remarkable artistic, communal, ephemeral, land-based, and performative approaches that empower and restore Darug bonds, with the land of the former institution as a living being.

  • Memory, Place, and Mobility: Kinchela Boys Home Aboriginal Corporation’s

      Abstract: Space and Culture, Ahead of Print.
      This “postcard” examines the development of Kinchela Boys Home Aboriginal Corporation’s (KBHAC) Mobile Education Centre as a mobile “site of conscience” as well as a place of Indigenous resistance and truth-telling in White Australia. KBHAC’s Mobile Education Centre is a whole of community experiential learning facility and aims to educate children, young people, and communities (Aboriginal and non-Indigenous) through three levels of engagement drawing on a range of resources: oral testimony, archival footage and artifacts, animated film, visual images, and interactive materials including an online portal. The Mobile Education Centre represents one example of decades of advocacy of survivors to raise awareness about Kinchela Boys Home and the experiences of Stolen Generations survivors. This postcard tells the story of KBHAC’s Mobile Education Centre and situates it within the context of ongoing efforts to reclaim the former Kinchela Boys Home site, located on Dunghutti Country, Mid-North Coast, New South Wales. In doing so, this article seeks to document the story of a mobile site of conscience which seeks to educate about past harms and the intergenerational impacts of genocidal laws and policies while creating a space for truth-telling that supports the process of post-traumatic growth and intergenerational healing.

  • Haʻu ka Waha i ka Nahele: Dissonance and Song in Kanaka Sites of
           Counter-Memory

      Authors: Kahikina de Silva

      Abstract: Space and Culture, Ahead of Print.
      Waikīkī and Maunakea are two sites of global interest and prominence, occupying a certain space in the collective consciousness of Hawaiʻi. They are not, however, often considered as sites of conscience, even though they are the sources of Kanaka counter-memory that stand in opposition to the memories codified by the settler state into narratives of Kanaka dispossession and Americanization. This article interrogates this condition of illegibility, and the role of mele, hula, and a moment of dissonance in revealing the sites and stories often overwritten by dominant, quasi-colonial narratives of tourism, capitalism, Western enlightenment, and progress. I also argue that our true sites of conscience are those that invite a change of consciousness on the part of the onlooker/participant, laying the foundation for collaborative envisioning of pono futures for Hawaiʻi, in the context of aloha ʻāina.

  • University Spaces as Sites of Conscience

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Karin van Marle
      First page: 205
      Abstract: Space and Culture, Ahead of Print.
      In this article, I reflect on the idea of university spaces as potential sites of conscience. I explore how these spaces act not only as continuous reminders of past violence, marginalization, and exclusion, but as reminders also of ethical accountability and redress. The latter discloses opportunities and possibilities for a reinterpretation of such spaces, keeping in mind that the traces of the past will remain and that every attempt at erasure will be incomplete. The article considers how spaces or places that remain in the process of decolonization can be mobilized as sites of conscience. These sites/spaces/places manifest relationality also between materiality and symbol and between judgment and ethical accountability. The article focuses on issues surrounding the removal of a statue of the past president of the Republic of the Orange Free State, President M. T. Steyn at the University of the Free State (UFS) in Bloemfontein, South Africa. The university has a long and troubled history of exclusion, racism, and authoritarianism, among others. Since the early 1990s, many attempts have been made to transform, not all in vain. The statue itself was a site of contention at the UFS for many years and was removed over the last weekend in June 2020. I conclude that space that remains on the UFS campus is one of haunting that urges a certain sense of place and atmosphere that could forge learning, education, and transforming citizenship.

  • Space, Place, and Countervisuality in Montgomery: A Rhetorical Analysis of
           the National Memorial for Peace and Justice

      Authors: Patricia Davis

      Abstract: Space and Culture, Ahead of Print.
      The National Memorial for Peace and Justice (NMPJ) is a site of conscience that simultaneously mobilizes and interrogates the neoliberal cityscape of its location in downtown Montgomery, Alabama, USA. The memorial is comprised of a monument commemorating the more than 4,000 documented lynching victims in the United States and a museum that provides the historical and contemporary contexts for lynching and other forms of racial violence. Located in an iconic city of the African American civil rights movement that is attempting to rebrand itself as a scene of racial reconciliation, the memorial mobilizes discourses of space and place to situate contemporary mass incarceration as the “unfinished business” of the era. This essay addresses the commemorative duality implicated in the NMPJ’s ability to marshal and contest the neoliberal assumptions activated through rhetorics of reconciliation, redemption, post-racialism—and, ultimately, American exceptionalism—to offer a countervisual reading of Montgomery’s cityscape.

  • Delinquent Girls as Activists: Insider Activism and Carceral Welfare

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Jacqueline Z. Wilson, Bree Carlton
      First page: 245
      Abstract: Space and Culture, Ahead of Print.
      The article examines the motivation and role of the insider activism that resulted in the preservation of a major historical site of female incarceration, the Parramatta Female Factory Precinct, in suburban Sydney. For much of the 20th century the site was a “Girls’ Home,” in which children who had committed no offense were incarcerated under child welfare regulations and literally treated like criminals. Life in the institution was characterized by routine extreme maltreatment of children, many of whom have carried the psychological legacy of their time there throughout their lives. A group of survivors, moved to preserve and reclaim the space, spent many years contending with obdurate and indifferent bureaucracies before successfully having the site Heritage-listed, and it is now a member of the international Sites of Conscience. The Precinct’s significance as a site of feminist carceral history is discussed, and its place in today’s cultural landscape examined.

  • Sites of Violence, Sites of Peace, Sites of Justice: Transforming the

      Authors: Diah Kusumaningrum, Ayu Diasti Rahmawati, Jennifer Balint, Nesam McMillan
      First page: 309
      Abstract: Space and Culture, Ahead of Print.
      The collaborative “Sites of Violence, Sites of Peace” project seeks to transform the relational landscape of Yogyakarta by enabling new intergenerational conversations about the 1965 politicide in Indonesia and further injustices with other marginalized communities. This community-engaged project developed walking tours of (largely unacknowledged) sites of historic violence: a colonial fort turned national museum, a derelict office building, a refurbished bank. Through these tours, sites of past suffering are activated by unheard survivor testimonies, making visible historical injustice and its contemporary and enduring significance. Unsettling the dominant spatial arrangement of Yogyakarta, the tours rewrite the city as a space where injustice and persecution are experienced. Crucially, the tour is also a relational encounter, facilitating intergenerational conversations that challenge social and political exclusionary norms. It, thereby, enables a form of relational justice, which requires active involvement from fellow citizens, not solely redress from the state.

  • Theorizing Otherwise: Sites of Conscience and Gendered Violence

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Maria Tumarkin
      First page: 331
      Abstract: Space and Culture, Ahead of Print.
      This article starts with the idea that a site of conscience is uniquely capable of keeping alive in the public imagination—as an open wound and as a call to action—the devastating persistence of gendered violence. It doesn’t seek to offer an account of how such a site might come to be imagined, let alone come into being. Instead, its focus is on the conceptual work required to make space for this kind of imagining. I argue that it is important to make and maintain a distinction between a site of memory and a site of conscience and that the category of time needs to be denaturalized and reconsidered in our conceptualization of the cultural work performed by sites of conscience.
