    Description

    This project investigates the problems of managing and interpreting significant heritage sites in Australia’s experience of war located in foreign sovereign territory. This focus on extraterritorial concerns moves beyond existing understandings of the contexts in which heritage is contested, exposing the greater complexities of managing national heritage in an international context. It will produce strategies for advancing heritage practice, policies and theory by encouraging understanding and dialogue between stakeholders of different historical and cultural backgrounds. In doing this the project recasts nationalist understandings of heritage and provides new frames for promoting dialogue at places of profound emotional significance.
