(p.220) 10 Meditations on turning towards violently dead
Democracy in Crisis

Sharon Rosenberg

Manchester University Press

This chapter considers the political affect of democracy. It analyses the response to violent deaths in communities in Montreal and Edmonton, Canada. It describes the forms of memorialisation through which the violently dead are remembered in order to understand the complex ways that violence, loss, identity, identification and public memorial history are caught up with each other. It also problematises remembrance practices that operate through modes of identification and proposes a conception of democracy that could be conceived as something other than other as same, history as past, and progress as necessitating destruction.

Keywords:   democracy, political affect, violent deaths, Montreal, Edmonton, Canada, memorialisation, public memorial history
