Heritage and Interpretation is an introductory reader for postgraduate students of heritage studies, museum studies and those interested in how we conceptualise and use the past. Widening the scope of heritage studies by drawing on a range of disciplines as well as the best from established sources, the book also explores heritage through new areas of knowledge including emotion and affect, the politics of dissent, migration and intercultural and participatory dimensions of heritage. This blending of traditional topics and emerging trends, established theory and concepts from other disciplines enables the volume to offer readers views of the past and future of this growing field.show more
