Memorializing traumatic death
Editor's note: Over the next few issues, ANTHROPOLOGY TODAY will be featuring articles by anthropologists analysing memorials. In their editorial, Peter Jan Margry and Cristina Sánchez-Carretero open a debate on what they tentatively refer to as ‘improvised’ or ‘spontaneous memorials’ to traumatic deaths. This is complemented by a topical article in this issue by Sylvia Grider on the way the Columbine and Virginia Tech shootings have been memorialized.
