Rodney Harrison is a Reader in Archaeology, Heritage and Museum Studies at the UCL Institute of Archaeology and the founding editor of the Journal of Contemporary Archaeology. He has been Vice President of the Association of Critical Heritage Studies since 2012. He is the author of more than a dozen books and edited volumes and more the 60 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters on a range of topics. His books include Collecting, Ordering, Governing: Museums, Anthropology and Liberal Government (with co-authors; Duke, 2016); Heritage: Critical Approaches (Routledge, 2013); Reassembling the Collection (with co-editors, SAR Press, 2013); Understanding the Politics of Heritage (MUP, 2011); and The Heritage Reader (with co-editors, Routledge, 2008). He is currently principal investigator on the large, international, collaborative UK Arts and Humanities Research Council funded 'Heritage Futures' research programme, which seeks to explore innovative solutions to shared conservation issues across the fields of natural and cultural heritage practice. The project is distinctive in its comparative approach which aims to bring heritage conservation practices of various forms into closer dialogue with the management of other material and virtual legacies such as nuclear waste management, as well as in its exploration of different forms of heritage as distinctive future-making practices. This constitutes one of the largest critical, comparitive ethnographic studies of heritage and heritage-like practices to have been undertaken. Further information about the project is available at www.heritage-futures.org
