The Labour of Memory presents empirical research on memorial culture and the 2005 London bombings. The study proceeds with the view that remembrance involves work. This shifts the focus from established topics in memory studies to less explored aspects of remembrance including experience and organisation. Matthew Allen undertakes close readings of extracts from interviews with organisers and participants of 7/7 memorial culture. Drawing on the work of Michel Foucault, Giles Deleuze, Giorgio Agamben and Hannah Arendt, he considers how issues of autonomy, subjectivity and affect shape practices of remembrance. Allen examines cosmological and embodied possibilities of memorial culture and finds that remembrance provides cosmopolitan opportunities for working upon and caring for the soul.
