about this item

Large-scale disasters mobilize heritage professionals to a narrative of heritage-at-risk and a standardized set of processes to counter that risk. Trinidad Rico’s critical ethnography analyzes heritage practices in the aftermath of the tsunami that swamped Banda Aceh, Indonesia, in 2004 and the post-destruction narratives that accompanied it, showing the sociocultural, historical, and political agendas these discourses raise. Countering the typical Western ideology and practice of ameliorating heritage-at-risk were local, post-colonial trajectories that permitted the community to construct its own meaning of heritage. This book-documents the emergence of local heritage places, practices, and debates countering the globalized versions embraced by the heritage professions;-offers a critical paradigm for post-destruction planning and practice that incorporates alternative models of heritage;-will be of value to scholars, professionals, and advanced students in heritage studies, anthropology, geography, and disaster studies.
