The Heritage-scape Revisited: Towards the Development of a More Inclusive UNESCO World Heritage Program

Thursday 14 March 2019
12:30PM - 1:30PM
Penn Museum


Ten years ago, "The Heritage-scape: UNESCO, World Heritage and Tourism" examined UNESCO’s World Heritage program and how it engages with tourism. During this brown bag lunchtime lecture, Dr. Michael A. Di Giovine of West Chester University reexamines the heritage-scape concept—the notion of a “place” populated by various groups who interact with World Heritage sites—and argues that, rather than seeing various heritage- and tourism-focused initiatives as separate, we should better understand their interconnectivity as part of a more holistic World Heritage Program. Presented by the Penn Cultural Heritage Center
