On Remembering John Winberry and the Study of Confederate Monuments on the Southern Landscape

On Remembering John Winberry and the Study of Confederate Monuments on the Southern Landscape Abstract: The late John Winberry was a productive scholar over his more than three decade academic career at the University of South Carolina. Professor Winberry may be best remembered today, in terms of his research on the American South, for his important work in the early 1980s on the geography of Confederate monuments found in cemeteries and courthouse squares across the southern landscape. In this paper, we argue that this research still resonates today for two reasons: first, his considerable detail in locating Confederate monuments both in time and space, and second, his observations about the ‘place’ of these monuments, their meanings, and how these meanings shifted over time. His observations, navigating both modernist and post-modernist paradigms, foreshadowed much of the work that has been done over the past twenty years by a new generation of scholars on the politics of memory in the American South. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Southeastern Geographer University of North Carolina Press

Abstract

Abstract: The late John Winberry was a productive scholar over his more than three decade academic career at the University of South Carolina. Professor Winberry may be best remembered today, in terms of his research on the American South, for his important work in the early 1980s on the geography of Confederate monuments found in cemeteries and courthouse squares across the southern landscape. In this paper, we argue that this research still resonates today for two reasons: first, his considerable detail in locating Confederate monuments both in time and space, and second, his observations about the ‘place’ of these monuments, their meanings, and how these meanings shifted over time. His observations, navigating both modernist and post-modernist paradigms, foreshadowed much of the work that has been done over the past twenty years by a new generation of scholars on the politics of memory in the American South.
