Historicising Heritage and Emotions : The Affective Histories of Blood, Stone and Land - (Hardcover)
about this item
Historicising Heritage and Emotions considers the long affective history of heritage, examining how emotions work to shape heritage both in the past and today. Comprising of fourteen case studies, the innovation of this volume lies in its historical methodology, which recognises heritage and emotion to have complex, evolving and vibrant histories. The central question of the volume is: ‘how was heritage understood and conceptualised in the past, and what role did emotions play in shaping heritage?’ In this regard, the volume questions what ‘heritage’ meant in different historical contexts and does this through a broad range of carefully selected case-studies that best elucidate the complex relationship between heritage and emotions.
