Edited by Tuuli Lahdesmaki, Suzie Thomas, Yujie Zhu
Part of the Explorations in Heritage Studies series
Critical Heritage Studies is a new and fast-growing interdisciplinary field of study seeking to explore power relations involved in the production and meaning-making of cultural heritage.
Politics of Scale offers a global, multi- and interdisciplinary point of view to the scaled nature of heritage, and provides a theoretical discussion on scale as a social construct and a method in Critical Heritage Studies.
The international contributors provide examples and debates from a range of diverse countries, and discuss how heritage and scale interact in current processes of heritage meaning-making, and explore heritage-scale relationship as a domain of politics.
