Monument Culture: International Perspectives on the Future of Monuments in a Changing World

Monument Culture brings together a collection of essays from scholars and cultural critics working on the meanings of monuments and memorials in the second decade of the twenty-first century, a time of great social and political change. The book encourages readers to have a broad view of the challenges facing individuals and society in making sense of public monuments with contested meanings, and the ways in which differing places approach monuments. The goal is to acknowledge shared experiences through a wider perspective; to contribute to the work of the world-wide heritage community; and to document through publication the history and shifting cultural attitudes towards monument culture around the world, encouraging a more informed approach to monuments and their meanings, especially for the public and those outside of academia.
