Abstract:
This thesis explores contemporary spaces and processes for remembering District Six in Cape Town, placing this within the context of the 'return' of former residents to District Six and processes of institutional growth and professionalisation within the District Six Museum, the most high profile site of public memory. This involves reflecting on 'return' and 'change' from a variety of perspectives. Research was conducted at the District Six Museum and with former residents of District Six: it also involved engaging with District Six itself as physical and symbolic space.
