Palimpsestic Promenades: Memorial Environments and the Urban Consumption of Space in Post-1918 London

Volume 6 Issue 1 (2005)

Abstract: The author focuses upon four major war memorials located in Westminster Abbey to highlight the presence of new and modern sexual cultures evolving in post war London. These modern ways if looking at sculpture were informed by shifts in attitudes towards both male and female sexuality and were open to alternative interpretations than that officially sanctioned by the British state.
