    Palgrave Macmillan 2010; US$ 105.00

    This book offers a critique of the dominant conceptualization of heritage found in policy, which tends to privilege the white, middle and upper classes. Using Britain as an illustration, Waterton explores how and why recent policies continue to lean towards the predictable melding of cultural diversity with tendencies of assimilation. more...

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 54.95

    This book is about the way that professionals in archaeology and in other sectors of heritage interact with a range of stakeholder groups, communities and the wider public.

In a series of lucid and... more...

  • Memory, Place and Identityby Danielle Drozdzewski; Sarah De Nardi; Emma Waterton

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    This book bridges theoretical gaps that exist between the meta-concepts of memory, place and identity by positioning its lens on the emplaced practices of commemoration and the remembrance of war and conflict. This book examines how diverse publics relate to their wartime histories through engagements with everyday collective memories, in differing... more...

  • Heritage, Affect and Emotionby Divya P. Tolia-Kelly; Emma Waterton; Steve Watson

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Heritage and its economies are driven by affective politics and consolidated through emotions such as pride, awe, joy and pain.

Social scientists, particularly within cultural geography... more...
