Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This course is about the study of museums cultural heritage of/in Europe from an anthropological perspective. It will introduce the topic to the students and foster the understanding of heritage-related social phenomena.
It will take into consideration local and national examples of museums and musealisation processes as well as examples of UNESCO’s World Heritage items (with an emphasis on the so-called "intangible" heritage), with a focus on the analysis of both top-down/institutional policies and the responses to said policies at community level.

During the course, a significant number of case-studies from throughout Europe will be presented and discussed. Special attention will be devoted to the ethnographic investigations involving the study of cultural heritage making processes undertaken by the lecturer himself in Italy, Catalonia, and the Czech Republic.
Notions of "social memory", "identity", "tradition", and of course "museum" and "heritage" themselves will be critically examined and discussed during the lessons, with the support of the pertinent literature.

The provisional structure of the course will be the following:

a): How do we define and study museums and heritages anthropologically? Why is their study relevant?
b): The anthropology of memory, nostalgia, tradition, and identity.
c): Various types of museums, heritages, and heritage institutions.
d): Conclusions and further insights.
