Depuis les années 1970, émergent, dans de nombreux pays, des initiatives visant à valoriser les mémoires des migrations. Toutes ont pour objectif l'obtention d'une reconnaissance et la pleine acceptation des migrants (immigrés et émigrés) et de leurs descendants par les populations locales. Ce numéro analyse en amont les raisons et les conditions de cet intérêt ainsi que les caractéristiques des initiateurs mais surtout en aval les effets paradoxaux des actions entreprises. Il questionne l'intérêt conféré par les personnes concernées, migrants et descendants, à ces initiatives, ainsi que l'écart entre les mémoires transmises dans l'espace privé et les usages publics du passé. Enfin, il interroge la croyance en les bienfaits de la mise en récit publique et de la patrimonialisation des passés migratoires et leur capacité à agir sur les représentations des migrations.

CFP: Cultural Heritage, Rights, and Democratic Practice

Session for the American Anthropological Association Annual Meeting

San Jose, CA; November 14–18, 2018

Organized by:

Kathryn Lafrenz Samuels (lafrenzs@umd.edu)

Jon Daehnke (jdaehnke@ucsc.edu)

Cultural Heritage, Rights, and Democratic Practice

"Cultural heritage" has variously been understood as bequests and legacies from the past that are selected for use in the present and passed on to future generations (Ashworth and Graham 2005); as the technocratic frameworks and institutions built to manage such selections (Smith 2006); and as a mirror that society holds up to itself to understand or explain social change (Kirshenblatt-Gimblett 1998, 2004). In this session we consider an additional rubric through which to understand and approach cultural heritage: through its indissoluble bonds with "rights". To speak of cultural heritage is to enter a field of relationships forged between past and present. These relationships can be characterized as an intersecting network of rights, claims, and obligations, binding the present and past together. Exploring cultural heritage through the lens of rights recognizes the importance of the past on current claims, as well as the centrality of rights to defining heritage in our globalizing present.

Certainly, cultural heritage claims/practices and broader human rights claims/practices have increasingly intersected. Papers in this session, however, will focus on these intersections in the realm of contemporary heritage work that operates within democratic contexts. In these settings heritage rights are often invoked vis-à-vis democratic political institutions (such as liberal democratic states and state-supported agencies or bureaucracies), and are supported through democratic practices (such as participatory, collaborative, and deliberative approaches to cultural heritage). Therefore, papers in our session will interrogate the character—both necessary and unexpected—of the relationship between rights, democratic practice and heritage. This will include exploration of the ways that democratic principles and institutions might foster rights through the opportunities of participatory and deliberative heritage practice. Our session will also, however, address the challenges that democratic approaches to heritage and rights present, especially in settings where democratic processes work to equate and accommodate multiple heritage claims that may, in reality, be neither equal nor able to co-exist.

Deadline for abstract submission, membership renewal, and registration:

Monday, April 16 @ 2pm 

If interested please send along an abstract of <250 words to the organizers by Thursday, April 12.
