About this item

Cultural heritage has become a central concept of local and national identity, yet defining this heritage is always subjective. The essays in this volume discuss theoretical and practical issues related to the management of select Polish and foreign cultural institutions, showing that the essence of heritage resides in the choice to transform cultural goods into "heritage." Contributors discuss topics ranging from literature and folklore to urban exploring and museums. The book includes articles on cultural management and collective memory in select institutions and cultural projects and issues such as the legal protection of heritage's intangible domain, the role of stakeholders in managing cultural heritage, and the process through which public and private actors decide what belongs in and outside of the heritage framework.
