With the renewed focus on monuments and memorials after 9/11 new questions are being raised and old ones revisited about how objects become memorialized or even de-memorialized. And while it is clear to us now that the monument's physical presence is always in jeopardy of disappearing, it is not as clear how a monument's meaning travels in and out of various conceptual spaces as the monument changes physical shape or adapts to the cultural ceremonies or power shifts within national states.
