Communities and social groups experience place through real and imagined facets, to make sense of the world and the stories told therein. This book engages with and expands on crucial issues of representation, storytelling, tangible material cultures and memories. The visualisation methodology illustrated in this book will be useful for undertaking and publishing participatory fieldwork. This book seeks to join up the dots of the factual and imaginary that form affective networks of identities, which in turn shape local memory, sense of self, community and sense of the past. Make-believe spaces - in the environment, storytelling, and mnemonic narratives - as a social framework that aligns and informs the everyday memory worlds of communities. Heritage specialists, ethnographers, cultural geographers and oral history practitioners will find the methodology affordable, easy to replicate and valuable for community-based projects.

Author Biography

Sarah De Nardi lectures in Heritage and Tourism at Western Sydney University, Australia and is Assistant Editor of Journal of Community Archaeological and Heritage (Taylor & Francis). Italian-born cultural geographer and landscape archaeologist, Sarah is interested in the spatial dynamics and everyday ethnographies of modern conflict. She has developed a successful mode of community mapping as a means of exploring the embodied and private/public intersections of memory feeding into cultural heritage representation. Her first monograph entitled The Poetics of Conflict Experience: Materiality and Embodiment in Second World War Italy (Routledge, 2016) revived the perception of Second World War Italy through the prism of materiality, identity and embodiment.
