HSTY6992 - Monuments, Memory and History

Semester 2, 2014  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Robert Aldrich


This unit looks at historical monuments - considered broadly to encompass ruins, statues, war memorials and other commemorative edifices, both formal and informal, as well as features of the natural landscape - and the role they play in the construction and conservation of historical identity and heritage. It will examine theoretical approaches to 'collective memory' and 'sites of memory' with examples drawn primarily from Europe, Australia and Asia. Students will write research papers on both specific monuments and thematic issues.
