Handbook of Heritage Law and Discourse ATriadic Dimension: Protection, Regulation and Identity

The call for papers is open for the edited volume “Handbook of Heritage Law and Discourse ATriadic Dimension: Protection, Regulation and Identity” by the editors Le Cheng & Anne Wagner.

The past fourdecades has witnessedthe remarkable extension of enthusiasm in cultural heritage or property from the perspective of international laws, or international legal framework as the multilevel legal instruments for safeguarding, protection and maintenance of cultural heritage, property, or rights. In our project, the identification of “Heritage” employs specific discourses, codes, transcending values, and images that conceal assumption about members of a people comprising a people within a nation. Heritage narrates constructions ofbelongings that become tethered to negotiations for power and resistance over time and throughout a people’s history leading to powerful discursive narratives. While such likeness may be preserved, conserved or even perpetuated, the idea of “Heritage” maybe socially, politically, culturally, and historically contested to reveal competing pasts, presents, and futures, esp. with innovation in arts leading to new social normsand identities.

Besides, the visual decoding of heritage is evocative and ideologically representative with meanings that prescribe a story of Protection, Regulation and Identity, since these meanings are subject to multiple interpretationsand reinterpretations related to Rights, among the integrity of heritage right and human rights, and the integrated framework of rightin remand right in personae. Yet, through semiotic accumulation, evolution and confrontation, there may be different interdisciplinary paths leading to different truths, to tensions (contestation and/or negotiation), and applications of significance. We should then investigate these transmitted values, discourses over time and space.

We should therefore investigate these transmitted values under various perspectives (amongst others but not limited):

  • How to transmit Heritageand which values are being transmitted?
  • How are the narratives created?-Is there a social stratification in transmitting, preserving and conserving Heritage?
  • What are the cognitive and symbolic aspects of Heritage through different temporal parameters? Is there a shift in cultural and/or collective meaning from one space to another?
  • What are the sources?
  • What is the relationship between law and “heritage” (tangible or intangible elements) in visual representations?
  • What is the shared collective and/or cultural memory beyond this visual representation?
  • How Heritage is connected to the preservation and conservation of a people’s memory?
  • How Heritage is interpreted within legalsettings or international legal frameworkfrom temporality and spatiality?
  • What are the interactions between cultural heritage and human rights within the diversity and tolerance within socio-legal contexts?

Considering the complexity and diversity in the building of a common memory or discourse community through tangible and intangible cultural heritage, we would suggest our contributors interrogate the complex sign system of a particular country or region and their meanings attentive to a complex configuration of historical, social and cultural conditions that shift over time and space.

Deadline for abstracts: February 28.
