- Waking the Dead: Death, Burials and Memorials
|Coordinator(s)||Andrew Piper (email@example.com)|
Monuments and cemeteries are a particularly valuable source of historical evidence. They both commemorate and perpetuate memory, and fix meaning on the landscape - meaning that changes over time. This changing meaning and the changing treatment of death and public memory will be explored using Australian and international examples. Of particular interest to local and family historians will be study of the theory and method for research and interpretation of cemeteries. Students in this unit must have access to a general cemetery and/or a public monument/memorial. Field work is necessary.
