This research group intends to address the ways how practices of everyday life – the intangible expressions – are turned into forms of intangible cultural heritage.
Through such processes of ‘heritagization’, intangible forms of the everyday are becoming subject to politics, juridical implications in an (inter-) national context, interference or subjection to global (UN) conventions, debates and controversies. The research group aims at:
Lectures/talks, workshops, conferences, articles, Media exposure
The group aims to facilitate an international exchange of expertise that crosses disciplinary boundaries and to disseminate research findings across geographical regions.
