Islam and Heritage in Europe: Pasts, Presents and Future Possibilities
The book, edited by Katarzyna Puzon, Sharon Macdonald and Mirjam Shatanawi, provides a critical investigation of the role of Islam in Europe’s heritage. Focusing on Islam, heritage and Europe, it seeks to productively trouble all of these terms and throw new light on the relationships between them in various urban, national and transnational contexts.
In the recently published book ‘Das Indernet. Eine rassismuskritische Internet-Ethnografie‘ (2020), Urmila Goel deals with ethnographic material on the Internet portal ‘Indernet,’ collected by the researcher over the past seventeen (!) years. Click here to find out more (in German).
Preservation of natural and cultural heritage is often said to be something that is done for the future, or on behalf of future generations, but the precise relationship of such practices to the future is rarely reflected upon. Heritage Futures draws on research undertaken over four years by an interdisciplinary, international team of 16 researchers and more than 25 partner organisations to explore the role of heritage and heritage-like practices in building future worlds.
