Displaced Heritage : Responses to Disaster, Trauma, and Loss, Paperback / softback Book

Displaced Heritage : Responses to Disaster, Trauma, and Loss Paperback / softback

Edited by Ian Convery, Gerard Corsane, Peter Davis

Part of the Heritage Matters series


The essays in this volume address the displacement of natural and cultural heritage caused by disasters, whether they be dramatic natural impacts or terrible events unleashed by humankind, including holocaust and genocide.

Disasters can be natural or human-made, rapid or slow, great or small, yet the impact is effectively the same; nature, people and cultural heritage are displaced or lost.

Yet while heritage and place are at risk from disasters, in time, sites of suffering are sometimes reframed as sites of memory; through this different lens these "difficult" places become heritage sites that attract tourists.

Ranging widely chronologically and geographically, the contributors explore the impact of disasters, trauma and suffering on heritage and sense of place, in both theory and practice. Contributors: Kai Erikson, Catherine Roberts, Philip R.
