    Introduction2011In: Museum International, ISSN 1350-0775, E-ISSN 1468-0033, Vol. 63, no 1-2, p. 6-7Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The papers in this issue were first presented at the interdisciplinary conference “Applied Cultural Heritage: How telling the past at historic sites benefits society” held at Linnaeus University in Kalmar, Sweden, 17-19 November 2010. The conference was organised jointly by Linnaeus University, Kalmar County Museum and Bridging Ages, International Organisation in Historic Environment Education and Time Travels. The aim of the conference was to explore how cultural heritage and stories about the past benefit society today. Given the major changes of society in recent decades and a fast developing globalisation, we proposed that it is no longer self-evident which historic sites are meaningful (and to whom), which stories about the past should be told (and why), and how cultural heritage can best benefit society (and what that means). It was therefore time to ask these questions anew and explore them together with practitioners in the heritage sector from around the world.

    Places, People, Stories2012Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This graphic novel is the documentation of Places, People, Stories, a conference held at Linnaeus University in Kalmar, 28–30 September 2011. The conference was the culmination of the research project Places as Stories (see page 31) and attracted more than 175 participants from around the world, including Scandinavia, United Kingdom, USA, Japan, Argentina, Israel, India, the Marshall Islands and Australia. A wide spectrum of disciplines was represented including Anthropology, Archaeology, Architecture, Art, Business Studies, Design, Heritage Studies, History, Human Geography, Literature, Media Studies, Pedagogics, Religious Studies and Tourism Studies. Professionals working in the education, landscape and heritage sectors were also invited. The conference, which took place at the conference centre Brofästet close to the Baltic Sea, just outside the centre of Kalmar, featured four keynote lectures and more than 120 academic presentations in 18 sessions as well as six artistic contributions. Some sessions may be published separately in traditional academic formats. The conference was supported by grants received from Linnaeus University and the Swedish National Heritage Board. During the three conference days a multidisciplinary discussion took place about human narratives and their connections to places. The aim was to create a platform for unpredictable dialogues between professional scientists and artists, while providing opportunities for personal encounters and conversations that may lead to a new understanding of how cultural phenomena emerge.

    Radioactive heritage of the future: A legacy of risk2021In: Cultural Heritage and the Future / [ed] Cornelius Holtorf, Anders Högberg, Routledge, 2021, p. 176-197Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Abraham Van Luik worked on siting studies for the US during the 1980s as a geochemist analysing candidate deep geologic repository options in multiple rock formations across the United States. He championed efforts to develop international standards for informing future generations about radioactive waste repositories around the world. Two categories of waste pose particular challenges for the future in terms of environmental management and also heritage management: chemo-toxic hazardous wastes from industrial manufacturing and processing as well as radioactive wastes, especially those produced for electricity generation in nuclear plants. Hazardous chemical waste is little-present in the public perception, in contrast to the radioactive wastes, which have achieved a true cult status when it comes to the refusal by society in general and many concerned site locations for permanent disposal in particular.

    Abstract [en]

    This interview with Victor Buchli and Gavin Lucas was undertaken over email during the Summer / Autumn of 2013 and coordinated by Alfredo González-Ruibal on behalf of the editorial team: Alfredo González-Ruibal, Rodney Harrison, Cornelius Holtorf and Laurie Wilkie. An initial set of questions was drafted and agreed amongst members of the editorial team, and a series of follow-up questions (indicated by the presence of author’s initials) were subsequently posed in cases where individuals hoped the interviewees might expand on particular points. These have been maintained in the text to allow the reader to follow the various threads which each interviewer chose to pursue.

    Abstract [en]

    Heritage Futures is a four-year collaborative international research programme (2015–2019) funded by a UK Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) ‘Care for the Future’ Theme Large Grant, and supported additionally by its host universities and partner organisations. The research programme involves ambitious interdisciplinary research to explore the potential for innovation and creative exchange across a broad range of heritage and related fields, in partnership with a number of academic and non-academic institutions and interest groups. It is distinctive in its comparative approach which aims to bring heritage conservation practices of various forms into closer dialogue with the management of other material and virtual legacies such as nuclear waste management. It is also distinctive in its exploration of different forms of heritage as future-making practices. This brief paper provides an introduction to the research programme and its aims and methods.

    Heritage Futures: Comparative Approaches to Natural and Cultural Heritage Practices2020Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Preservation of natural and cultural heritage is often said to be something that is done for the future, or on behalf of future generations, but the precise relationship of such practices to the future is rarely reflected upon. Heritage Futures draws on research undertaken over four years by an interdisciplinary, international team of 16 researchers and more than 25 partner organisations to explore the role of heritage and heritage-like practices in building future worlds.

    Engaging broad themes such as diversity, transformation, profusion and uncertainty, Heritage Futures aims to understand how a range of conservation and preservation practices across a number of countries assemble and resource different kinds of futures, and the possibilities that emerge from such collaborative research for alternative approaches to heritage in the Anthropocene. Case studies include the cryopreservation of endangered DNA in frozen zoos, nuclear waste management, seed biobanking, landscape rewilding, social history collecting, space messaging, endangered language documentation, built and natural heritage management, domestic keeping and discarding practices, and world heritage site management.

    Abstract [en]

    The workshop on Poros which forms the basis of this collection of papers was entitled ‘Archaeological ethnographies: charting a fi eld, devising methodologies’. Both the workshop and the present volume that resulted from it constitute attempts to establish a new fi eld, with its own methodologies and its own contested practices, at the interface of several existing disciplines and fi elds of research. My comment takes the workshop on Poros and its results as a starting point but intends to raise some relevant wider issues concerning the dynamics of academic practice.

    A European perspective on indigenous and immigrant archaeologies2009In: World archaeology, ISSN 0043-8243, E-ISSN 1470-1375, Vol. 41, no 4, p. 672-681Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay scrutinizes the special status of indigenous archaeologies in contemporary world archaeology. My aim is to contribute to the future development of indigenous archaeologies by giving them the critical attention they deserve and have earned themselves. A contemporary European perspective not only shows that national heritage is no longer able to unite increasingly diverse populations but also that indigenous perspectives on the cultural heritage must not be privileged over others. What challenges and changes the role of heritage management in Europe in our age is not oppression by immigrants of indigenous minorities but, if anything, an oppression of immigrants by indigenous majorities. We should not surrender the important principles of equality and equal opportunities that modern democracies proudly embrace. Immigrants’ claims and responses to the common cultural heritage are as valid and significant as those of any other residents. As the old European nations gradually become episodes of the past, it appears that the future of heritage is wide open.

    Abstract [en]

    In this paper I consider an optimisation of possible future outcomes of archaeology for the benefit of society. By reviewing some recent and current projects conducted at Linnaeus University in Sweden I show that it is possible to engage actively and constructively with the future and consider benefits of archaeology for future societies. Archaeologists can and should ask questions such as these: Which future(s) are they working for? Which archaeological heritage will benefit future generations most? How can archaeologists build capacity in future thinking?

    Abstract [en]

    I have much sympathy for Shannon Dawdy’s eloquent argument in favour of reorienting archaeology away from reconstructions of the past and towards problems of the present (p. 140). The topic is timely, her argument sharp, and the discussion of the issues at hand benefits from them being put on the spot in rather dramatic fashion. I do not agree with those who might argue that such calls for more social relevance in a humanities subject are merely the symptom of an unhelpful but prevalent insecurity and demonstrate a lack of confidence in one’s own academic abilities. At the same time, Dawdy’s passionate and courageous argument would have benefited from additional analysis of the subject matter at hand. As it stands, I have two main reservations to her paper.

    Abstract [en]

    During the years of the COVID-19 pandemic (2020-2021 thus far), nobody could remain in any real quarantine. The humans of the world were reminded daily of the global progress (or otherwise) of one virus, several vaccines, and numerous health systems. As always, archaeology could not escape its present. The following are my reflections on some issues I had on my mind during the time of the ‘corona crisis’. They reflect my perspective as an archaeologist working on heritage futures who normally travels a lot throughout Europe and beyond, but now remained put in Sweden, working a lot from home and, curiously, attending even more international meetings than before, albeit virtual ones.

    During the 23-24 November 2017 meeting, the message of the responsible UNESCO staff to the assembled UNESCO Chairs (and representatives of some other UNESCO programmes) in the area of culture came across loud and clear: UNESCO would like to receive from us concrete evidence for how culture including heritage can contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as suggested in the Agenda 2030 adopted in 2015. The United Nation’s SDGs have been specified and broken up in targets and indicators, and these should be our main reference points.

    Abstract [en]

    The claim that “we are all archaeologists now” extends existing commitments to include into archaeological discussions the views of local communities, researchers in other disciplines, amateur researchers (citizen scientists) and other important stakeholders such as indigenous populations. However, far from all would agree that such inclusivity is indeed appropriate or sensible. The present Forum debating the question whether or not “we are all archaeologists now” demonstrates not only the diversity of viable perspectives on the practice of archaeology but also the variety of possible means of expression and indeed the vitality of archaeological questions in many realms of contemporary society. Contributions have been submitted from around the world and they encompass disciplinary perspectives from archaeology, art, architecture, Urban Studies, design, sociology and anthropology, as well as very personal accounts involving sickness, music and homelessness.

    Authenticity and Pastness in Cultural Heritage Management2018In: Encyclopedia of Global Archaeology: Living edition / [ed] Claire Smith, Berlin: Springer, 2018, Living editionChapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Authenticity is about what you can trust to be what it purports to be, and cultural heritage is about what evokes the past in a given social con- text. Consequently, authentic cultural heritage is about what you can trust and evokes the past in society. This quality is often assessed by various ways of determining the age of the heritage in question. But dating does not sufficiently take into account the perceptions of the audience. For something to evoke the past in a given social context, it does not have to be old. Instead of focusing on age, we must therefore focus on the perceived quality of being of the past, as it is the presence or absence of this perception that deter- mines whether or not something is trusted to evoke the past in society.

    Averting loss aversion in cultural heritage2015In: International Journal of Heritage Studies (IJHS), ISSN 1352-7258, E-ISSN 1470-3610, Vol. 21, no 4, p. 405-421Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    According to Daniel Kahneman’s theory of loss aversion in behavioural economics and decision theory, people tend to prefer strongly avoiding losses to acquiring gains of the same value. A recently proposed alternative explanation of the same behaviour is inertia. In this paper, I am heuristically transferring these observations from the realm of economics to the realm of cultural heritage. In the cultural heritage sector of the Western world there has long been a preference for avoiding losses over acquiring gains of the same value. Maintenance of the status quo of cultural heritage is typically perceived as being superior to loss or substitution. However, social anthropologist Tim Ingold recently advocated a view that challenges this preference for loss aversion by considering both people and buildings as something persistent, continuously re-born, and constantly growing and going through a process of ever new creative transformations. By appreciating heritage objects as persistent and continuously being transformed in ongoing processes of change, growth and creation, the preference for loss aversion can be averted and a more dynamic view of cultural heritage be adopted that is better able to work through cases and examples like those presented in this paper.

    Changing Concepts of Temporality in Cultural Heritage and Themed Environments2016In: Time and Temporality in Theme Parks / [ed] Filippo Carlà-Uhink, Florian Freitag, Sabrina Mittermeier, Ariane Schwarz, Hannover: Wehrhahn Verlag, 2016, p. 115-130Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Theme parks and other themed environments commonly evoke stories about the past in order to provide their customers with enjoyable experiences. The underlying visions of the past can easily be dismissed as creative fiction drawing on common stereotypes. Usually, these visions are only very loosely related either to historical accounts based on academic research or to genuine cultural heritage. However, rather than dwelling on anachronisms in theme parks, I am interested in this paper in exploring discernible connections between cultural heritage and artificiality, authenticity and theming. Even cultural heritage needs to evoke stories about the past to provide visitors with enjoyable experiences. I argue that an important precondition for that to succeed is not the historical age of an observed object but its pastness. Pastness denotes the perceived quality that a given object is of the past. Pastness is not immanent in an object but may result from the object’s appearance (e.g. patina), its context (e.g. in a museum), or its correspondence with preconceived expectations among the audience. Therefore, pastness can – and indeed must – be designed and managed. There are thus important lessons to be learned from successful theme parks for cultural heritage management. I conclude by speculating about the social significance of fictitious heritage in themed environments.
