Product Overview

Can heritage culture come to terms with the ideological issues at stake when confronting devolution, colonialism, slavery, asylum and globalization?
"The Politics of Heritage: Legacies of Race" explores how the heritage industry and cultural policy have responded to questions of nation and national identity. The contributors consider such national issues as whose heritage is celebrated in heritage events and spaces, how heritage is taught in schools, the symbolism of the St. George Cross, and how heritage culture has adapted to take on board a more pluralistic idea of national identity. Such questions are also examined outside Britain, with chapters on how British heritage is imagined in New Zealand, South Africa and India.
By interrogating the ways in which British heritage is organized in relation to changing understandings of 'ethnicity' and 'nation', "The Politics of Heritage: Legacies of Race "asks what the possibilities are for new radical agendas that can imagine decentred and hybrid narratives of British history and identity.

Editors Note 1 While 'social inclusion' and 'cultural diversity' circulate frenetically as buzzwords, are we really ready to accept that ideas about 'race' and 'ethnicity', rather than being a peripheral concern, are at the core of how a nation's heritage is represented and imagined?|This book interrogates just whose past gets to count as part of 'British heritage'. Bringing together a wide range of contributors, including academics, practitioners, policy makers and curators, it examines how many different of types of heritage - from football to stately homes, experience attractions to education - deal with the complex legacies of the idea of 'race'.|Whether exploring the fallout of colonialism, the domination of 'England' over the other three nations, holocaust memorials, or the way British heritage is negotiated overseas, a recurring theme of this book is the need to accept that Britain has always been a place of shifting ethnicities, shaped by waves of migration, diaspora and globalization.|Analyzing both theory and practice, this book is concerned with understanding the processes through which changes to heritage happens, and with exploring problems and possibilities for the future.
