Memorials have been fiercely debated in recent times. What roles do memorials play in a society and how do these acts of remembering contribute to a community’s sense of identity? What gets remembered and what forgotten, and who decides? When, if ever, should memorials be removed? We discuss past and present controversies around public memorializing, from Ground Zero and Confederate monuments to Rhodes Must Fall and Trafalgar Square.
