Over the course of the past two decades, Geographies of Memory has become one of the leading subfields within human geography. Just within the last two years (as demonstrated by the number of papers and special sessions organized at the AAG's annual meetings!), studying the intersections of space, place, and memory seems to be reaching an exciting new crescendo. This session usefully highlights the breadth research being done within Geographies of Memory, emphasizing textures, discourses, and debates.
