Iconoclastic Controversies

A Photographic Inquiry into Antagonistic Nationalism

A visual sociology of statues and commemoration sites in Cyprus.

The book combines photography and written text to analyze the role of memorials and commemoration sites in the construction of antagonistic nationalism. Taking Cypriot memorializations as a case study, the book shows how these memorials often support, but sometimes also undermine, the discursive-material assemblage of nationalism.
