Different human groups define certain objects and practices as 'heritage'; they envision heritage to reflect some form of collective memory, either lived or imagined; and they combine both to construct cultural identities. Today, the three terms raise conjoined issues of practice, policy and politics in an increasingly globalized world. Bringing together a truly global range of scholars, this volume explores heritage, memory, and identity through a diverse set of subjects, including heritage sites, practices of memorialization, museums, sites of contestation, and human rights."--Publisher description.
