Consideration of the intangible dimensions of cultural heritage places, objects and practices is a rapidly emerging field, involving theoretical, conceptual and practical learning drawn from multiple disciplines and perspectives.
This unit both explores and questions the duality of ‘tangible’ and ‘intangible’ in international and local heritage scholarship and practice. Issues of cultural diversity, traditional knowledge, human rights and commodification are explored; and the tools of documentation, transmission and legal protection are critically examined, as well as the mechanisms and processes established by UNESCO’s 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage.
