Instrumentalism in Heritage Learning
2011 (English)In: MUSEUM INT, ISSN 1020-2226, Vol. 63, no 1-2, 130-139 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Many people employed in the heritage sector are hostile to current political demands. History and heritage cannot be subject to short sighted political thinking! This paper demonstrates that this hostility is not only counter productive for the sector but also to staff. The critique is furthermore based on false ideas of what museums, archives and heritage sites used to be. The article shows the historical coherence behind post-modern heritage learning.
