Publication:Staging Loss: Performance as Commemoration
Brief Description/Editor(s):Pinchbeck, M., Westerside, A.
Publisher:Palgrave Macmillan

In fifteen micro-chapters, one for each chapter in the book, the editors explore their own auto-ethnographic relationship to notions of remembrance and reflect upon significant ?inscriptions of loss?, from the dedication to Henry Purcell that scores the music to his Dido?s lament from Dido and Aeneas, to the pockmarked pavement of Sarajevo. It relates the local to the global and identifies shared latitudes between chapters in the publication. It weaves together the themes of the book with references to the cyclical nature of conflict and its commemoration.
