Publication: Anthropological Journal of European Cultures (22:1) – History, Heritage and Place-Making

Anthropological Journal of European Cultures

THEMATIC FOCUS: History, Heritage and Place-Making

How do people use history to shape their lives, places and ‘worlds’? Which kind of history do they use, and in what ways? What are the functions of history in this context? How do people interact with places and spaces by constructing history, and what are the implications of these constructions for a sense of place? These are some of the questions explored in this special issue on history and place-making.
