The Symbolic Impact of the Bronze Mobilization Campaign

(p.138) 5 “Pedestals Dedicated to Absence”
Bronzes to Bullets
Stanford University Press

This chapter investigates the symbolic impact of the bronze mobilization campaign during the war and in the postwar period through a discussion of the relationships between memory and absence. The ways in which French communities dealt with the absences created by empty pedestals revealed local concerns that ranged from mourning communities' losses to embracing progress and modernity through reconstruction.

Keywords:   bronze statuary, memory, absence, French communities, mourning, modernity
