Présentation de la société :
The Association of Critical Heritage Studies is dedicated to promoting and developing heritage studies as a social, cultural, economic, and political phenomenon and as an area of professional or governmental intervention from a perspective of sustainability and social and cultural equity. Inspired by the paradigms of change inherent in postcolonial studies, it was officially founded in 2012, in Gothenburg (Sweden), based on an inaugural manifesto calling for a transdisciplinary and transversal reflection on the discursive and political bedrock of heritage, so as to bring together people from the world over who are interested in contributing to a critical analysis of the situation, construction, and role of heritage.
