Disasters can be natural or human-made, rapid or slow, great or small, yet the impact is effectively the same- nature, people and cultural heritage are displaced or lost.

Yet while heritage and place are at risk from disasters, in time, sites of suffering are sometimes reframed as sites of memory- through this different lens these difficult places become heritage sites that attract tourists. Ranging widely chronologically and geographically, the contributors explore the impact of disasters, trauma and suffering on heritage and sense of place, in both theory and practice.
