Anglo-American Narratives in Public Space

Evaluating commemoration and generational transmission of the special relationship

(p.189) 8 Anglo-American Narratives in Public Space
Culture Matters

Robert M. Hendershot

Manchester University Press

Robert Hendershot investigates a broader pattern of Anglo-American ‘places of memory’ on both sides of the Atlantic to demonstrate how historical markers, statues of historic figures, and churches have been used to create and preserve, via generational transmission, notions of an Anglo-American imagined community. Exploring the government agendas behind (and popular reception of) a hegemonic Anglo-American narrative designed to celebrate US–UK cooperation and cement perceptions of collective culture, Hendershot illustrates how a heavily manipulated but influential version of the past has become physically as well as rhetorically ambient in both nations.
