How things shape memory: The case of monuments and counter-monuments

My presentation will suggest some possible ways to connect cognitive and cultural semiotics investigating the role that material artefacts can play in the process of constructing cultural memory. In particular I will analyse the semiotic strategies of monumentalisation and counter-monumentalisation.
