The multimedia articles, interviews, photo essays, and presentations in this educational resource explore the contested politics of historical memory and memorialization. Through scrutiny of public efforts of remembering that range in size from handmade roadside memorials to Atlanta’s historic Oakland Cemetery and extend from the Cherokee Expulsion through the 2016 gay nightclub shooting in Orlando, this scholarship expands critical definitions of monuments and remembrance, tracing influences within and beyond places and spaces of the US South. This educational resource also offers short films, oral history interviews, and readings by poets that contribute to the study of social memory.
