    Annmarie Adams & Shelley Hornstein (2015). Can Architecture Remember? Demolition After Violence. Environment, Space, Place 7 (1):47-67.
    Th is paper uncovers how demolition has served as a collective way of forgetting violent pasts. It explores several examples in Canada, including the 1992 demolition of the notorious Mount Cashel Orphanage in St. John’s, Newfoundland, a building we claim was purposefully razed to the ground in order to forget egregious crimes of sexual abuse that had taken place on the site. We contend that as with other sites associated with difficult memories, this was a valiant effort to forget by (...)

    Elizabeth Jelinek (2015). An Examination of Plato’s Chora. Environment, Space, Place 7 (1):7-27.
    In the Timaeus, Plato’s creation story, Plato describes an entity he refers to as the chora. The Greek word chora is translated as place, room, or space, but Plato’s descriptions of the chora are so notoriously enigmatic that there is disagreement about what, exactly, he intends to indicate by it. In this paper, I address an interpretation of the chora according to which the chora is a kind of cosmic mirror. I argue that this interpretation results in an uncharitable reading (...)

    Natasha Lushetich (2015). Private Reconstructions of Past Collective Experiences: Technologies of Remembering-Forgetting. Environment, Space, Place 7 (1):105-134.
    This article queries the notion of performance as a sustained act of commemoration, and, thus, implicitly, atonement and forgetting. Laying aside potential considerations of guilt and/or victimisation inherent in the spatio-temporal superimposition of a World War II modality of existence on an affluent, and, by comparison, peaceful part of the world, my investigation focuses on three mutually related areas of performance: the body’s hidden somaticity, the co-becoming of the self and time; and walking as a mnemonic mechanism. Aided by the (...)

    Matthew G. McKay (2015). Reflecting on Access to Common Property Coastal Resources Via a Case Study Along Connecticut’s Shoreline. Environment, Space, Place 7 (1):68-104.
    Public access to the commons is often restricted, thus leading to implicit regulations. This is relevant toward spatial systems, as an important geographical issue is access to various sites over space, and this paper presents varying degrees of accessibility in different places. There is a dialectic struggle to enhance access to the commons as a fundamental right of the public, with the need to balance tourism and recreational uses of coastal resources with conservation and preservation eff orts. This paper will (...)

    Katrina Simon (2015). Re-Casting the Past: Re-Instating Once Broken and Tuneless Bells and the Recalling of Past Urban Landscapes. Environment, Space, Place 7 (1):28-46.
    Th is paper explores the perception of urban landscapes through sound, using two case studies of cities where bells played a significant role in the city, where a particular dramatic event silenced these bells, and where the act of remaking broken or tuneless bells re-creates an engagement with the lived places of the past. At Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, newly cast bells recreate the melodious peal last heard before the French Revolution, and ChristChurch Cathedral in Christchurch, New Zealand, bells (...)
