How does uncertainty about the deep future and the transformation of values affect heritage practice? How do institutions and people decide what to discard and what to keep in times of mass production and consumption? How is diversity preserved – or produced – in the domains of biology, culture, genetics and language, and what happens if these domains interact? How might we work with, rather than against, processes of decay and ruination in heritage conservation?
Rodney Harrison is a central figure in contemporary debates in critical heritage studies and in the application of archaeological theories and methods to the study of the contemporary world. He is the director of the international collaborative Heritage Futures research programme, which is distinctive in its comparative approach and in its exploration of different forms of heritage and heritage-like fields as discrete future-making practices.
