Heritage and its Management - GEOP808

Heritage is a very important but also highly contested concept in contemporary society. This unit deals with a critical understanding of heritage broadly defined to include both forms of institutional heritage as well as manifestation of alternative ‘heritage from below’. Sections include a discussion of the varied perceptions, definitions and practices of heritage and their basis in broader individual and community values and ideologies. There is an emphasis on the management and experience of heritage sites in relation to tourism, consumption and cultural change.
