This talk focuses on the memorials located along the Khumalo street corridor in Ekurhuleni, South Africa and the Mohawk Institute in Brantfort, Canada. Both sites tend to foreground a narrative of reconciliation and multicultural nationhood. Focusing on these local memorial sites helps us understand the contested and negotiated ways in which apartheid and colonialism are
remembered/forgotten, and also enable us to understand the variety of articulations of the settler colonial present. The research for this talk has been conducted with Sam Longford.
