Key Issues in Cultural Heritage


About the Series

Key Issues in Cultural Heritage is a new and unique series which aims to identify interdisciplinary debates within the changing and under-theorized field of Heritage Studies and to explore how they impact on the practices not only of heritage management and conservation, but also the processes of production, consumption and engagement with heritage in its many and varied forms. Each volume brings together a selection of international contributors and global case studies, providing a balance of theoretical and empirical content.
