Call for papers:   

At the outset to the 21st century, worldwide, cultural and natural
heritage resources are under increasing threat from a variety of
pressures that operate at a number of levels -globalization, tourism,
population growth, national and regional development initiatives. The
responses to these threats have varied internationally and within
nations. In some instances, there is strong state intervention,
effective legislation and well-funded government agencies which are
generally well-supported by the public. In other instances, state and
civil intervention may be weak, threatening the safeguarding of cultural
and natural heritage resources through, for example, inappropriate or
ill-conceived management and tourism strategies and the lack of will and
capacity. The potential also exists for the emergence of conflict
between indigenous populations and the state, concerning the ownership
and protection of heritage resources - both natural and cultural.   


The planned special issue of Journal of Anthropology aims at addressing
these issues. We invite investigators to contribute original research
articles, case studies as well as review articles that will stimulate
debate and contribute to our understanding of the management and
interpretation of cultural and natural heritage resources worldwide.   


Potential topics include, but are not limited to:   

Globalization and heritage management   

State and civil society in heritage management   

Role of stewardship in management   

Tourism - panacea or threat   

Indigenous heritage management   

Nature vs. culture in heritage management   

Who should interpret heritage and how this is done
