Short Abstract

We will explore issues arising from the intersections of anthropology and intangible cultural heritage (ICH). By conveying a multiplicity of subjects we will call for in depth considerations around the role of anthropology in the study of ICH, its limits and possibilities.

Long Abstract

Intangible cultural heritage” “means the practices, representations, expressions, knowledge, skills – as well as the instruments, objects, artifacts and cultural spaces associated therewith – that communities, groups and, in some cases, individuals recognize as part of their cultural heritage. c.” (UNESCO, 2003)

This panel will be open to explore several issues arising from the intersections of anthropology and intangible cultural heritage (ICH). What is now called ICH refers to a wide array of subjects commonly studied by anthropologists. The goal of this panel is to explore the multiplicity of subjects that can emerge from those intersections. Papers will address both general and specific topics ranging from (1) anthropological research as a safeguarding tool for ICH; (2) tradition and innovation in ICH; (3) transmission and valorization processes; (5) ICH and experiences of mobility (a. how ICH is being created/recreated in sending and receiving communities; b. the role of ICH in everyday life for people who have moved away – permanently or temporarily – from their places of origin; collective memory as ICH in receiving communities…); (6) ICH and development (a. potential of ICH as an economic resource for local development, b. ICH and tourism, c. ICH as an income generating activity); (7) ICH and selfhood (a. identity; b. resilience; c. embodied practices).
