2023 International Conference on Heritage and Affect

Activity: Talk or presentationTalk or presentation at a conference



What is the role of the body in the way we experience and design places of heritage? This question has been of particular interest to scholars, designers, and curators alike across a broad range of fields: from heritage studies, cultural geography, contemporary memorial and museum design to the scholarship on atmospheres in architecture. This section includes nine contributions that explore how the body—with its affective and sensory experiences, habitual actions, capacities for movement, pre-reflective awareness, imagination, and reflective wonder—plays a role in the emergence, production, and communication of meaning in places of heritage.
