Rethinking British Colonialism and its Representations at World Heritage Sites

Activity: Talk or presentationPublic lecture

Description

A renewal of public and political interest in British colonial heritage illustrates the pressing need to better understand that history. This presentation will provide an introduction to a new international research project that focuses on UNESCO World Heritage Sites that foreground the British Empire, including Bermuda’s. The project
compares how such sites are received, navigated, repurposed and understood by professionals, visitors, and their host communities, which may enhance World Heritage management, interpretation and public engagement.
