HRTG6901 - The Idea of Heritage
Semester 2, 2012 | Credit Points: 6
Coordinator: Annie Clarke
Phone: +61 2 9036 9499
In contemporary society heritage is understood as a form of cultural practice and production that operates at local, national and global scales. Heritage has moved beyond the identification and conservation of 'things we want to keep' to incorporate ideas about intangible values, identity formation, the role of memory and different knowledge systems from critical and theoretical perspectives. This unit of study will examine how heritage is produced, consumed, negotiated and conserved through political processes, structures of governance and cultural practices.
