Many have asked for Confederate monuments’ removal while others argue that they should remain or be recontextualized. I analyzed themes found in Southern university student newspapers on the monument issue and how the statues related to community attachment. Using thematic analysis, I identified six themes across the articles, and found that both removal and recontextualization arguments refer to the ideology behind the statues and the impacts this can have on students. Instances of attachment were used in both removal and recontextualization articles.
