The importance of absence in the present: practices of remembrance and the contestation of absences

Meier, Lars; Frers, Lars; Sigvardsdotter, Erika

What is missing, where and for whom? And how does that which is absent relate to the things and people that are present? This special issue of cultural geographies demonstrates the relevance of absence in its social and spatial dimensions. By focusing on that which does not claim physical presence, that which is missing or hiding, this issue demonstrates how an in-depth examination of the phenomenon of absence can provide stimulating vectors of analysis.
