Making Global Heritage Futures

General mission statement

The Making Global Heritage Futures (MGHF) cluster has a critical and interdisciplinary focus on how heritage – as elaborations of artifacts, practices or ideas of the past –constitutes a part of, and is used in, ongoing political, economic, social and cultural processes traversing local, national and global scales.

Relating heritage to these processes brings a number of issues and questions into focus, for instance; the ways in which heritage is interpreted and practiced within the politics of memory production and identity politics; how heritage is appropriated and exploited in terms of rights, property and ownership; the ways heritage is used in connection to the commodification and consumption of the past; and how heritage is being globalized as an assemblage of institutions, expert positions, knowledge and discourses.

The cluster will coordinate and support critical and interdisciplinary research activities and projects, with a cross-boundary character, that are situated within the overall field of the cluster.

Follow our tagging experiment in the project Re:heritage on Facebook! Have you ever been curious about where things in second-hand shops end up once they leave the shop? We have tagged hundreds of things – clothes, trinkets, furniture – in second-hand shops around Gothenburg, and encourage people who happen to buy these things to tell us what you do with them. Either on Facebook, or on Instagram (search #reheritage) or via email: re:heritage@gu.se
