Abstract

This poster was presented at the 'X-Scapes: 10th Linguistic Landscapes Workshop, 02-04 May, 2018, University of Bern, Switzerland', It presented ongoing research into the memorialisation of the Hillsborough Football Tragedy (15 April, 1989) in which 96 Liverpool Football fans were unlawfully killed. It explores the notion of 'unforgetting', that is replacing a false narrative with a true account, and investighates this through and as “a nexus of trajectories shaped by the ongoing interventions of inter alia individuals, institutions, activist groups, artists, passers-by etc. producing their accounts, artefacts, transgressive emplacements and acts of unforgettting across different places, media and timescales".
