Hiroshima Traces

This chapter examines the productive and transformative nature of space in relation to Hiroshima. It explains that the reformulated cityspace can provide a new “container of power” leading to new knowledge and consciousness about history and society. The chapter also contends that the dominant process of spatial containment define the proper territories for memorializing, prescribing whose experiences should be remembered and when, where and how they should be invoked.

Keywords:   cityspace, Hiroshima, container of power, spatial confinement, memorializing, society
