1. Hollow, Rosemary. How nations mourn:the memorialisation and management of contemporary atrocity sites .

Degree: 2010, Australian National University

Terrorism and atrocities have scarred the public memory in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. Three atrocities, the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, the 1996 massacre at Port Arthur Historic Site in Tasmania, Australia, and the 2002 Bali bombings, had a significant impact on the communities they most affected. How did the differing governments and communities at these sites respond to the sudden loss of life? How were the competing agendas of these groups managed ? Are there shared and distinctive characteristics in the memorialisation of atrocitites across these countries at the turn of the millenium? In responding to these questions, this study analyses cultural differences in memorialisation at contemporary atrocity sites. It examines the differing responses at the case study sites to the planning and the timing of memorials, the engagement of those affected, the memorial designs and the management of the memorials, including tributes. It is an original comparative study of contemporary memorialisation by a heritage professional directly involved in the management of memorials at contemporary atrocity sites. The original research includes the identification of the role the internet in contemporary memorialisation, an in-depth analysis of the memorialisation of the 1996 massacre at Port Arthur Historic Site, and the memorialisation in Bali and across Australia of the 2002 Bali bombings. It extends the current scholarship on the memorialisation of the Oklahoma City bombing through identifying the impact of the internet in the memorialisation and in the timeframe of the analysis through to the 15th anniversary in 2010. The comparative analysis of the management of tributes at all the sites identified issues not previously considered in Australian scholarship: that tributes and the response to them is part of the memorialisation and management of contemporary atrocity sites. A combined research method based on an interpretive social science approach was adopted. A range of methodogies were used, including literature reviews, analysis of electronic material, site visits, unstructured in-depth interviews, and participant-observation at memorial services. Studies on history, memory and memorialisation provided the framework for my analysis and led to an original proposal, that all three sites have shared histories of the memorialisation of war and ‘missing’ memorialisation. These shared histories, I argue, strengthened the justification for this comparative study. This comparative study identified differences across the case study countries in the designs of the built memorials, in legislation enacted after the atrocities, the responses to the perpetrators, the marking of anniversaries, and in the management of tributes left at the sites.

2. Lux, Alexandra. Web memorials in the German speaking area.

Degree: 2017, University of Vienna

Die vorliegende Arbeit untersucht Kommunikation auf online Gedenkseiten im deutschsprachigen Raum. Die theoretische Ansiedelung ist hierbei interdisziplinär in den Feldern der Soziologie, Psychologie und Kommunikationswissenschaft. Die Fragestellung bezieht sich auf die Herausarbeitung der Attribute, die zur Erstellung einer Gedenkseite führen. Für wen werden Gedenkseiten im deutschsprachigen Raum erstellt? Welche Inhalte sind auf diesen Profilen zu finden und wie Verhält sich die Kommunikation auf diesen Seiten über die Zeit hinweg? Zu diesem Zweck wurden in dieser Arbeit 500 Profile eines deutschsprachigen Gedenkseitenanbieters untersucht. Insbesondere standen dabei die soziodemographischen Daten der Verstorbenen, sowie die Profilinhalte im Zentrum der Untersuchung. Ausserdem wurde neben der Anzahl der geposteten Nachrichten in Form von Gedenkkerzen, ausserdem dessen zeitlicher Verlauf erhoben. Die mittels Inhaltsanalyse gewonnenen Daten wurden dann anschließend anhand einer Regressionsanalyse ausgewertet. Diese zeigte verschiedene signifikante Ergebnisse bezüglich der Faktoren, welche das Postingverhalten auf diesen Seiten im deutschsprachigen Raum beeinflussen. Des weiteren wurde das Postingsverhalten der Profilbesucher über einen Zeitraum von minimal einem Jahr auf ihre zeitlichen Muster hin untersucht. Ins besondere wurden hier individuell relevante Daten, wie Geburtstag und Sterbetag, in den Fokus der Untersuchung gestellt. Zusätzlich wurde ausserdem das Postingverhalten in Bezug auf das allgemeine Kalenderjahr betrachtet.

The present thesis examines communication on online memorials in the German speaking area. The theoretical background in placed interdisciplinary in the fields of Sociology, Psychology and Communication Science. The question aims to extract the attributes that lead to the creation of a memorial profile. Who are online memorials created for in the German speaking area? What content can be found on these profiles and how are patterns of communication over time? To this purpose 500 profiles on a German memorial website where examined. In particular sociodemographics, as well as the content on these profiles where in the center of investigation. In addition to that the number of posted messages in the form of remembrance candles, as well as their date stamps were collected with the data. Data was collected through content analysis and analysed by a regression analysis. Results indicate significant findings concerning the factors that influence communication activity on profiles in the German speaking area. In addition to that patterns of communication in the form of postings over the minimal time span of one year where examined. Examination regarded dates of individual importance, such as birthday, day of death, as well as the general calendar year.
