World Heritage and Identity : Three Worlds Meet: a workshop arranged during the VII International Conference on Easter Island and the Pacific : Migration, Identity, and Cultural Heritage
2012 (English)Conference proceedings (editor) (Other academic)
The workshop “World Heritage and Identity: Three Worlds Meet” was arranged as a part of the VII International Conference on Easter Island and the Pacific; Migration, Identity and Cultural Heritage. This conference was hosted by Gotland University the 20-25th of August 2007. The idea was to arrange meetings between around twenty scholars and professionals who represented World Heritage sites from three Island communities. These sites are the National Park on Rapa Nui (Easter Island), Visby Medieval Town on Gotland and Stone Town in Zanzibar. They all share a special aura of an exotic and glorious past, and in the present these communities rely heavily on cultural tourism where the past tangible heritage is promoted. These sites have disparate historical trajectories, cultural settings and backgrounds, but in one way or another they share colonial, postcolonial and neocolonial experiences. The agenda at this workshop was to discuss local and global issues in relation to World Heritages and identity from collective and individual perspectives, and to share experiences.
