Assembling alternative futures for heritage

This is an interdisciplinary research programme aiming to develop a broad, international and cross-sectoral comparative framework for understanding “heritage” in its most expansive sense. Heritage is fundamentally concerned with assembling futures. This programme will compare a range of conventional and unconventional future-making practices from a number of different heritage and heritage-like fields. It aims to facilitate co-creation and sharing of practical knowledge across these various domains of practice, which are rarely considered collectively, to contribute to the development of innovative and sustainable approaches to heritage conservation. “I am very excited [to work on a project] which will help us to understand how current speculations regarding what (and how) to conserve in the present actively shape our material, ecological and social futures,” said Rodney Harrison.
