Abstract [en]

After decades of research and debate in the field that today is known as heritage studies, it has become clear that cultural heritage is best understood as a set of social practices and processes, valued in specific circumstances for their implications and outcomes. In other words, the discussion has come a long way from earlier ways of understanding cul- tural heritage in terms of monuments or traditions that have survived from the past and carry intrinsic values that ought to be preserved as such for the benefit of future generations. As a result, the most important question in studying cultural heritage is now not what it is, but what it does. In cultural heritage management and preservation – the sector in which many students graduating in our field find employment – we no longer consider cultural heritage in terms of what it was, but rather of what it could become. Consequently, the focus of those who understand and develop cultural heritage has shifted somewhat, from highlighting issues of conservation to highlighting issues of change.

Abstract [en]

The author argues that shifting the narrative on cultural heritage from one of conservation and loss to a continuous process of change and transformation can build cultural resilience (i.e. the ability of cultural systems to absorb adversity). This change in perception can help us develop an appreciation of the transformative and evolving nature of the world – an understanding that can help us manage relations between present and future societies as well as inspire us to prepare for different possible imagined futures.

Abstract [fr]

L’auteur soutient que l’on peut renforcer la résilience culturelle (la capacité des systèmes culturels à s’accommoder de l’adversité), en ne présentant plus le patrimoine culturel comme un processus de conservation et de perte, mais plutôt comme un processus continu de changement et de transformation. Cette nouvelle perception peut nous aider à apprécier la nature transformationnelle et évolutive du monde – grâce à une compréhension qui nous aidera à gérer les relations entre les sociétés présentes et futures et nous encouragera à nous préparer à différents futurs imaginés.

Abstract [en]

The Archaeology of Sound, Acoustics and Music, which is the topic and indeed the title of the present volume, is of great significance to both Archaeology and Heritage Studies in at least two major ways. Firstly, sound, acoustics and music are part of our intangible heritage. Secondly, the goal of archaeology has always been understanding living people of the past and not just the sherds and ruins they left behind.

Abstract [en]

Cultural Heritage, Ethics and Contemporary Migrations breaks new ground in our understanding of the challenges faced by heritage practitioners and researchers in the contemporary world of mass migration, where people encounter new cultural heritage and relocate their own. It focuses particularly on issues affecting archaeological heritage sites and artefacts, which help determine and maintain social identity, a role problematised when populations are in flux. This diverse and authoritative collection brings together international specialists to discuss socio-political and ethical implications for the management of archaeological heritage in global society.

With contributions by authors from a range of disciplinary backgrounds, including archaeologists, philosophers, cultural historians and custodians of cultural heritage, the volume explores a rich mix of contrasting, yet complementary, viewpoints and approaches. Among the topics discussed are the relations between culture and identity; the potentialities of museums and monuments to support or subvert a people’s sense of who they are; and how cultural heritage has been used to bring together communities containing people of different origins and traditions, yet without erasing or blurring their distinctive cultural features.

Cultural Heritage, Ethics and Contemporary Migrations is a crucial text for archaeologists, curators, policymakers and others working in the heritage field, as well as for philosophers, political scientists and other readers interested in the links between immigration and cultural heritage.

Abstract [en]

COVRA’s nuclear waste repository outside Vlissingen contains a very special kind of cultural heritage: the nuclear waste itself. As we will see, the Dutch facilities also keep some more ordinary cultural heritage. That collaboration is worth looking at in more detail.

Abstract [en]

In this paper I explore relationships between human and animal commemoration in zoological gardens and animal sanctuaries. Archaeologists, including Anders Andrén, have emphasised the complex ontological, cosmological and social interactions of people and animals in past societies. Investigating the contemporary commemoration of captive beasts in zoos and animal sanctuaries, as part of an archaeology of zoos, reveals that such approaches might also apply to the present day.

Abstract [en]

Over its first two years, the UNESCO Chair on Heritage Futures at Linnaeus University has been engaging in an extensive programme of national and international collaboration in research and training. We presented our work and agenda on many occasions in Sweden and around the world. We established contacts to various programmes and activities in UNESCO, to the Swedish Delegation to UNESCO, the Swedish UNESCO Commission, and began collaboration with other UNESCO Chairs in Sweden and internationally. Over the past year we co-organized two large events in Stockholm and in Amsterdam. In this report, we document the progress made by the entire team over our second year of activities.

Background

Heritage futures are concerned with the roles of heritage in managing the relations between present and future societies, e.g. through anticipation and planning. Our work is dedicated to developing professional strategies that can enhance how heritage shapes the future. We ask questions such as: Which future do we preserve the heritage for? Which heritage will benefit future generations most? How can we build capacity in future thinking (futures literacy) among heritage professionals worldwide?

The UNESCO Chair Programme addresses pressing challenges in society. The chairs serve as think-tanks and bridge-builders between human communities, civil society, academia, and policy-making, generating innovation through research, informing policy decisions and establishing new teaching initiatives. The UNESCO Chair on Heritage Futures at Linnaeus University is one of eight UNESCO Chairs in Sweden and the only one in the area of culture.
