Memory and non-memory in a domestic site of atrocity.

I am examining the handling of physical ‘community’ sites (such as homes or school buildings) in the UK and US that have been a site of violence, and the role that memorial culture plays in communities' decisions over the future of these sites. I am interested in how and why these decisions are made and in the decision-making process itself as a potential act of commemoration. Twitter: @turner_jenny
