DATE CHANGE - This event will now be held on Wed 17 May, not Wed 31 May as previously advertised.

Sophia Labadi explores the UNESCO framework for identifying and protecting heritage nationally, highlighting the ways in which narratives about non-European and non-traditional heritage subvert the dominant European representations of heritage. In conversation with Máiréad Nic Craith, she will examine issues relevant to tangible and intangible heritage, with particular emphasis on tourism, development and gender aspects of living traditions. Sophia is Senior Lecturer in Heritage and Archaeology and Director of the Centre for Heritage at the University of Kent. This seminar is part of Heriot- Watt University's IRC Conversations.

The Intercultural Research Centre was established in 2013 to address key intercultural issues in the changing global context. Máiréad Nic Craith is Professor of Cultural Heritage at the School of Social Sciences, and leads the IRC Heritage Research Group.
