Sites where the symbolic imaginings of the past interweave with the materialities of the present; places of memory are both constructed and contested (Rose-Redwood (2008) Soc. & Cult. Geog. 9, 4). K. Till in J. Agnew et al., eds (2003) explores places of memory, topographies and sites of social memory, and conflicts over national places of memory. See Forest and Johnson (2002) AAAG92, 3 on Soviet memorials, and Alderman (2003) Area 35, 2 on street names.
