Change Over Time is pleased to announce the launch of 11.1 Quarantine – Legacies of Isolation.
Places of isolation, detention, and quarantine reveal often unspoken truths about the states and the societies that created them. This issue explores the ways in which communities have preserved and remembered the liminal sites they once designed to tame and physically contain their fears.
When we disseminated the call for abstracts we could not have anticipated how timely the issue would become. Recognition is due to our contributors who thoughtfully crafted an ensemble of articles representing various historical, disciplinary, geographic, typological, and socio-political contexts as they pertain to heritage conservation practitioners and scholars alike. Furthermore, we thank our Guest Editor, David Barnes, for his skillfull arrangement of the contributors and theme.
