Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course aims to delve into the meaning and values attributed to places and objects of the past as well as natural landscapes and sites which are currently defined as "Heritage". During the lectures it will be discussed the role that Cultural and Natural Heritage has taken on in the EU policies as a system of economic development, and as an instrument to enhance transcultural dialogue within different societies.
The course offers the students the opportunity to acquire a critical thinking of the social phenomena linked to the construction of the past. In addition, students will be encouraged to linger on the intertwined connections between the intangible and
tangible aspects of the so-called "Natural Heritage". Attention will be paid to the study of the political dimension of Cultural and Natural Heritage as well as to the implications of anthropology, archaeology, history, and environmental discourses imbued in the practices of heritagization and identity construction.
Furthermore, the course explores the relationship between culture, landscape, territory, and memory encouraging the students to take on a critical approach to the analysis of what is really at play in the processes of making heritage.
Through the analysis of some case studies, we will try to answer the questions: "what is heritage? Who are the social actors involved in the interpretation and negotiation of the object of the past? Who is in charge of cultural or natural heritage? How archaeologists are responsible for creating the past?" and many more.
Finally, to implement the process of critical analysis, the students will be asked to actively participate to the discussions by presenting small presentations in class.
