Description:

The volume For an anthropology of heritage and patrimonialization: perspectives on historical monuments in Romania is the result of a research that addresses the patrimonialization of historical monuments, in other words the process of their social constitution, an area with a long tradition in Romania. The author starts from the assumption that the historical monument is not a natural product or a concept by itself and does not automatically and unanimously reflect an autonomous and indisputable reality, but represents a category of objects invested with value by the present society, in depending on her interests and needs. in this spirit, the social sciences approached the heritage as a product of the society, constituted as a result of interactions and negotiations between the relevant actors, these being institutions, professionals in different fields, politicians, personalities of public life, media, associations. of civil society, local communities or international bodies. (Prof. PhD Vintila MIHAILESCU)
