|"Loss Must Be Marked and It Cannot Be Represented": Memorializing Sex Workers in Vancouver's West End|
BC Studies, No. 197, Spring, 2018, pp. 9-38.
Looks at the culture of the area prior to the illegal evictions in 1984, history of advocacy by and for sex trade workers in Vancouver, and the authors’ struggle to secure reparations, an apology and a permanent memorial. Also discusses these issues in the context of ‘reconciliation’ and the consequences of racialization and criminalization.
