British Prime Minister David Cameron’s apology for Bloody Sunday
In this essay, we examine British Prime Minister David Cameron’s apology for “Bloody Sunday.” This case study offers one possible theoretical re-conceptualization of the apology genre that Villadsen argued for earlier in this book. We provide a theoretical framework to examine these apologies, which are dedicated to rebuilding and strengthening communal bonds harmed by historical injustice caused by one collective against another.
