Heritage Dynamics

Understanding and Adapting to Change in Diverse Heritage Contexts

A systemic reconsideration of the formation and preservation of heritage.

As a sociocultural concept, heritage flows through cycles of emergence, change, disappearance, and revival. These lifecycles are influenced by heritage environments such as museums, landscapes, cities, and intangible networks of cultural circulation. In Heritage Dynamics, Kalliopi Fouseki develops a new theoretical and methodological framework that will enable heritage scholars and practitioners to unpack the ways and conditions under which heritage changes. Under the contexts of urban cities, residential buildings, museum collections, and subjects of intangible heritage especially concerning flamenco, this work re-orients the consideration of heritage as an object, process, or discourse, towards a more systemic thinking that captures the complexity of this historical-cultural force.
