Abstract

Working from a processual understanding of heritage, this paper explores a range of case studies to critique the tendency to ‘fix’ a stable notion of heritage within essentialised spatial and temporal bounds. Rather than seeking to ‘trap’ a dynamic world in time and space, therefore, the paper considers the consequences and opportunities for building a more purposeful and progressive sense of heritage that is more critically attentive to power relations. Giving space to non-elite voices and practices, the paper makes experimental connections between some unusual case studies in order to provide scope through which heritage might have a critical appeal and emancipatory potential to be both more sustainable, and transformative.
