Foreign Cemeteries and the Colonial Space of Death

(p.195) 5 Foreign Cemeteries and the Colonial Space of Death
Scythe and the City

Christian Henriot

Stanford University Press

This chapter addresses the specific issue of the colonial space of death that private individuals and communities, but mostly the two foreign municipal councils, created through the establishment and management of cemeteries reserved to foreigners, with only very few exceptions. In pre-1949 Shanghai, foreign cemeteries established a trail of permanent and temporary burial grounds in the core urban area.
