About this product
- DescriptionThis book offers a critique of the dominant conceptualization of heritage found in policy, which tends to privilege the white, middle and upper classes. Using Britain as an illustration, Waterton explores how and why recent policies continue to lean towards the predictable melding of cultural diversity with tendencies of assimilation.
- Author BiographyEMMA WATERTON is a Lecturer in Social Science at the University of Western Sydney, Australia. Her research is largely prompted by an interest in the tensions that exist between elite discourses and alternative constructions of heritage, memory and identity.
