Special Issue: Remembering the 2005 London bombings: Media, memory, commemoration
From Memory Studies
This month marks the sixth anniversary of the ‘7/7’ bombings. The attack was unprecedented and was the deadliest act of terrorism the UK has suffered since the Lockerbie attack in 1988. By investigating the 2005 London bombings through the dual lenses of mediation and commemoration, this special issue offers insights into the very practices through which past catastrophes are remembered in both personal and collective contexts. As media technologies continue to evolve and to pervade our daily lives at an astonishing rate, the profound interconnections between media and memory are becoming ever more entwined.
