Open Questions and Challenges

What questions remain to be addressed or questions about memory did this exploration raise for you. What are the things we should pay attention to/discuss in class for future explorations?

     What motivates a culture to create an area for the memorialization of a specific past event, and how can the passage of time influence the interpretation of past memorials. In our project, we had to investigate the issue of homelessness, and we often questioned the historical process that would lead to the creation of a memorial to it in the future. What kind of stimulus would cause a society to eradicate homelessness, and what would be the process which leads them to treat it as a cultural memory that should be kept in topical awareness. In future explorations of memorials, a focus on how grounded a future exploration can be is important, as well as a more direct study of the events which lead to memorialization.
