She is the author of Tangled Memories: The Vietnam War, the AIDS Epidemic, and the Politics of Remembering (1997), Practices of Looking: An Introduction to Visual Culture (with Lisa Cartwright, third edition 2018), and Tourists of History: Memory, Kitsch, and Consumerism From Oklahoma City to Ground Zero (2007), and is the former editor of American Quarterly.


Revealing debates about how to memorialize the last two decades of enormous social disruption ... from 9/11 to Black Lives Matter ... [This book is] a relevant discussion of what sacredness of space means in terms of education, culture, and economics. * Kirkus Reviews *

Marita Sturken's compelling new book charts a significant shift in how many Americans today
understand national identity and purpose. Terror remains an active component, but activist
memory projects focused on racial terrorism suggest heightened interests in reckoning with
national histories of inequity and injustice.

* Erika Doss, author of Memorial Mania: Public Feeling in America *

There is no scholar better suited to undertake an analysis of the modes of memorialization in the
post-9/11 era and their relationship to US national identity. In her deft analysis, Sturken
painstakingly articulates the state of memory politics in the contemporary US. This is a must
read for anyone interested in memorial forms and the cultural work they perform.

* Alison Landsberg, author of Engaging the Past: Mass Culture and the Production of Historical Knowledge *
