|Title:||RIP by the Roadside: A Comparative Study of Roadside Memorials in New South Wales, Australia, and Texas, United States||Contributor(s):||Clark, JR (author); Cheshire, A (author)||Publication Date:||2004||DOI:||10.2190/3RED-6H7D-PNNC-URT7||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/575||Abstract:||The comparative study of roadside memorials in New South Wales, Australia, and Texas, United States, raises questions about the consistency in memorial form and practice between societies with diverse ethnic and religious profiles and different historical backgrounds. This article compares roadside memorials in two societies, and suggests that ethnic and sub-group affiliation accounts for local and individual differences in what is essentially an international phenomenon powered by developments in motoring culture, post-modernism, and globalization. The roadside memorial reclaims public space for the celebration of the individual in a period and place of overwhelming technological and cultural change.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Omega: Journal of Death and Dying, 48(3), p. 203-222||Publisher:||Baywood Publishing Co Inc||Place of Publication:||United States of America||ISSN:||0030-2228||Field of Research (FOR):||210303 Australian History (excl Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander History)||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 114
