Abstract

This final chapter
takes up these questions, mining some of our ethnographies for support. One of
these is the basis for a short diversion to a Turkish coffeehouse in what used to
be the edge of West Berlin. This is a marginal story that turns out to be central,
allowing us to suggest that among the multiple Europes circulating and bickering in the air around us, there are still some others yet to be brought into sight. After
this, we close the book with some practical comments about what, in this time of
perceived crisis, should be done to re-orient ideas of the European past at the level of heritage practice.

Abstract

European Heritage, Dialogue and Digital Practices focuses on the intersection of heritage, dialogue and digital culture in the context of Europe. Responding to the increased emphasis on the potential for heritage and digital technologies to foster dialogue and engender communitarian identities in Europe, the book explores what kind of role digital tools, platforms and practices play in supporting and challenging dialogue about heritage in the region.

Drawing on fieldwork involving several European museums and heritage organisations, the chapters in this volume critically engage with the role of digital technology in heritage work and its association with ideas of democratisation, multivocality and possibilities for feedback and dialogic engagement in the emerging digital public sphere. The book also provides a framework for understanding dialogue in relation to other commonly used approaches in heritage institutions, such as participation, engagement and intercultural exchange. The authors map out the complex landscape of digitally mediated heritage practices in Europe, both official and unofficial, by capturing three distinct areas of practice: perceptions and applications of digitally mediated dialogues around heritage within European museums and cultural policy, facilitation of dialogue between European museums and communities through participatory design approaches and non-official mobilisation of heritage on social media.

Abstract

This chapter makes an empirical contribution by
studying whether the launch of BRI has led to a shift in Central Asian attitudes
towards and perceptions of China. We discuss the interaction between China and
each of the five Central Asian states, highlighting local attitudes towards and perceptions
of the big neighbour. We focus on economic interaction, infrastructure
and education initiatives as they are among the main pillars of the BRI agenda,
while acknowledging that cooperation on political, diplomatic, and security issues
has been no less important for shaping perceptions of China in Central Asia.
One limitation of our analysis should be mentioned. It is difficult to separate
BRI analytically from other ongoing projects within the bilateral cooperation
between China and the Central Asian countries, “as many bilateral agreements
are now being brought under the Silk Road and BRI umbrella” (Dave 2018,
p. 100). We attempt to overcome this limitation by tracing changes in attitudes
towards and perception of China in general since 2013, when BRI was
announced, and whether the change can be attributed to the promotion of BRI.

Abstract

This book examines how different agents and institutions within the Danish nation state have situated themselves within this complex landscape of competing appropriations of classical antiquity from the eighteenth century to the present day. In particular, it focuses on the use of classical heritages to construct both European and national identities (in the plural) and especially on how Danes in this period have engaged with a sense of European commonality through their engagements with the classical past.

Abstract

This book is a reflection on the politics of heritage in Europe at the present time,
in a moment of pluralised conceptions of the political, social and demographic
organisation proper to Europe. It is not a book that seeks to survey, define or
characterise an enduring ‘European heritage’ as an entity, but rather to explore
what heritage does – how it is understood, instrumentalised and what it enables
– within what we will argue is a ‘critical’ moment for both identities and geopolitics
in Europe.

Abstract

This volume is an investigation of how Augustine was received in the Carolingian period, and the elements of his thought which had an impact on Carolingian ideas of ‘state’, rulership and ethics. It focuses on Alcuin of York and Hincmar of Rheims, authors and political advisers to Charlemagne and to Charles the Bald, respectively. It examines how they used Augustinian political thought and ethics, as manifested in the De civitate Dei, to give more weight to their advice. A comparative approach sheds light on the differences between Charlemagne’s reign and that of his grandson. It scrutinizes Alcuin’s and Hincmar’s discussions of empire, rulership and the moral conduct of political agents during which both drew on the De civitate Dei, although each came away with a different understanding. By means of a philological–historical approach, the book offers a deeper reading and treats the Latin texts as political discourses defined by content and language.
