Anthropology and/of heritage

Olivier Givre, Ph.D., Department of Anthropology, University Lumière-Lyon2.


31st MAY, 2:30-5:45 pm & 1st JUNE, 12:45 - 4:00 pm, ROOM 2.20.


Bring something about their own perception of heritage: object, picture, document, site, etc., be it from personal or familial background, natural or cultural heritages or whatever they think of as “heritage”.


The notion of “heritage” has become a major feature of the production of social and cultural value, both at local and global levels. It is well illustrated by the increasing production of cultural and natural heritages (artefacts, buildings, sites, landscapes, reserves, etc. but also rituals, skills, aesthetics, foods, etc.), from local communities to worldwide UNESCO’s policies. In all cases, heritage is a matter of public and/or private concern, a value, a resource but also a highly political issue, we may resume in the question: who decides and owns heritage? “Making heritage” implies selecting what one deems as “valuable”, worthy of protection and preservation, and shareable. Heritage processes can involve quite different stakeholders, from local communities to museums, and thus constitutes a social and political scene. Managed, displayed, used for economic and political purposes, heritage is also often related to (sustainable) development issues. Anthropologists are frequently confronted to heritage issues in their fieldworks, but also as (allegedly) specialists of “cultural values”. This course aims at discussing general statements on anthropology of/and heritage (cultural/natural heritage, intangible heritage, notions of transmission, rupture, cultural value, etc.), by focusing on current issues and debates concerning the concept of “heritage” in anthropology, through several guidelines, illustrated by fieldwork case studies:


-          From heritage to “heritagization”: how to cope with heritage in anthropology?

-          Heritage(s), between theoretical issues and concrete practices.

-          Heritage globalization and cultural development policies.

-          From heritage objects to heritage subjects: “intangible heritage” and “heritage community”.

-          Contested and plural heritages, “heritage arenas”, “negative heritages”, etc.

-          Memory tourism and heritage.
