Differential heritages of segregation in the post-industrial city: the case of Belfast

Publikation: Forskning - peer reviewBidrag til bog/antologi

Laura McAtackney focuses on the negative impacts of urban deindustrialization processes specific to the historically conflicted city of Belfast. Belfast and other cities in Northern Ireland continue to be determined in how they are understood and engaged with by legacy issues from 'the Troubles, a period of sectarian conflict spanning from the late 1960s to the signing of the Belfast Agreement in 1998. Many of the period’s tensions have subsided from actual violence but have remained unresolved among present-day local communities, particularly in community heritage discourses and governmental policies. McAtackney considers how these legacies of the past affect Belfast’s contemporary urban landscape and community identities through examples of civic memorialization practices (e.g., murals, sculptures) and other material interventions (e.g., walls, graffiti, memorials) in the historically-loyalist and industrial area of East Belfast.
