Call for papers for special issue of Journal of Anthropology
Special issue guest editors: Aron Mazel, Leon Jacobson, Liora Kolska Horwitz
Call for papers:
From the outset of the 21st century, cultural and natural heritage resources worldwide have been under increasing threat from a variety of pressures that operate at a number of levels - globalisation, tourism, population growth, and national and regional development initiatives. The responses to these threats have varied internationally and within nations.
In some instances, there are strong state interventions, effective legislation and well-funded government agencies generally well supported by the public. In other instances, state and civil intervention may be weak, threatening the safeguarding of cultural and natural heritage resources through, for example, inappropriate or ill-conceived management and tourism strategies, and the lack of will and capacity.
The potential also exists for the emergence of conflict between indigenous populations and the state, concerning the ownership and protection of heritage resources – both natural and cultural.
The planned special issue of the Journal of Anthropology aims at addressing these issues. We invite investigators to contribute original research articles, case studies and review articles that will stimulate debate and contribute to our understanding of the management and interpretation of cultural and natural heritage resources worldwide.
Potential topics include but are not limited to:
Globalisation and heritage management
State and civil society in heritage management
Role of stewardship in management
Tourism – panacea or threat
Indigenous heritage management
Nature vs culture in heritage management
Who should interpret heritage and how this is done
