Manon Istasse

Postdoctoral Researcher
Université de Picardie Jules Verne
Participates in 1 Session
I completed my master and my Ph. D. in social and cultural anthropology at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (Belgium). I'm interested in two main topics of research, cultural heritage and food. I dedicated my master and Ph. D. dissertations to cultural heritage in Fez (Morocco), investigating the daily life in a World Heritage site. I'm currently taking part into a collective research in Picardie (France) where I investigate the role of historic and heritage associations in the promotion of the region. 
I also carried out several researches about food in Morocco and in Belgium, studying the development of organic food in these two countries and the claims for halal food in Belgium. 
Among my main publications: « Affects and senses in a World Heritage site: the sensual and emotional side of the Fez medina », in World Heritage on the ground: ethnographic perspectives, and Eating in northeastern Cambodia. A socio-anthropological approach of highland food in Ratanakiri, White Lotus

What if we changed our views on heritage? And if heritage has already changed? While, on the global scene, states maintain their leading role in the mobilization of social and territorial histories, on the local scale, regions, neighbourhoods and parishes have changed. Citizens and communities too: they latch on to heritage to express an unprecedented range of belongings that no law seems to be able to take measures to contain, often to the discontent of...
