Drawing on Arvanitis’ research in several international case studies and on theories of ethics of care, affective and emotional labour, and digital materiality, the book provides a comprehensive analysis of practices of collecting, documenting, exhibiting and engaging the public with collections of spontaneous memorials. It also examines how institutional identities impact on and are impacted by spontaneous memorials, their role in how the associated events are remembered, the digital lives of spontaneous memorials, and the psychological impact they have on museum professionals and the public alike.
