My Liveable City January/June 2020 | Heritage & History
My Liveable City January/June 2020: Over the recent decades, the understanding of Heritage has expanded significantly to intersect with numerous urgent concerns such as social inequity, natural disasters, global warming and climate change. Heritage today is much more than the preservation and reuse of historic buildings and landscapes. It is as much about complex social histories and memories, and the future of marginalized people that do not get a voice in mainstream discussions. The agency of heritage conservation is maturing not just as an agency of cultural amelioration, but a strategic endeavor towards a socially, and environmentally sustainable future. In this issue, we explore the multifarious evolving guises and understandings of heritage and history and their relationship to city making.
