Nouveaux patrimoines : objets, acteurs et controverses
More about this picture
Credits : Mathieu Petite
At one and the same time an economic resource, a political tool and an identity symbol, heritage is also a focal point for an increasing number of issues in mountain regions, as it is elsewhere. Over the past twenty years, the range of objects likely to be designated as heritage has grown considerably: geological heritage, intangible heritage, such as vernacular languages or feasts, and even industrial heritage have been added to architectural heritage and monuments. This special issue of the RGA examines the methods of designating these new objects. The articles examine very different objects and provide insights into the actors involved in heritage development and the controversy that is invariably created. Thus, the articles in this special issue attempt to provide answers to questions such as: What right do certain actors have to decide on what constitutes heritage? How does heritage contribute to local and regional identities? What is the role of tourism in heritage development?
