ANTH 50.04 Digital Heritage: Global Politics and Practices

This course explores the idea of heritage as less of a “thing” and more of a cultural and social process—one that harnesses the act of remembering to create ways to understand and engage with the world. In recent decades, fostered not least through international organizations such as UNESCO World Heritage or the World Monuments Fund, heritage preservation has become a global political movement. Following both a historical and a comparative approach, this course seeks to transcend the Euro-American understanding of heritage, which is still very much the standard in international advisory bodies and address the various unrepresented perspectives, value systems, and frameworks of memory that play a role in heritage as a global phenomenon. As such, this course is designed to be a tool to both study and question heritage preservation and conservation.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
