Introduction: Life Space and Burial Space in the Post-Apartheid City.

L Green, N Murray

Abstract




Landscapes of the dead are always, simultaneously,
landscapes of the living. It is this coterminousness of life
and death that gives the burial site its salience and
emotional power. Different societies, at different times,
renegotiate the relationship between what anthropologists
call ‘life space\' and ‘burial space\', depending on settlement
patterns and the nature of livelihood.1
