Postdoctoral fellow
New York University Shanghai
Participates in 1 Session

Roslynn Ang works with the Sapporo Upopo Hozonkai, an Ainu performance group registered under UNESCO Intangible Heritage of Japan. Situated in the intersections of Anthropology, East Asian Studies and Settler-Colonial Studies, her research interests include performance, decolonizing methodology, indigeneity, representations of race and nation, and Japan’s colonial history with East Asia and the West. Her current book project, Performing Ainu Absence and Presence: Settler Gaze and Indigenous Be-ing in Japan, is an ethnography on the barriers and mediums that sustain the (in)visibility of the Ainu across the Pacific. Roslynn is one of the founding members of the Early Career Researchers Network at the Association of Critical Heritage Studies and a current Global Perspectives on Society Fellow at New York University Shanghai.

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...

Le patrimoine fait aujourd’hui l’objet d’attentions autant que d’agressions et de destructions. Cela peut s’expliquer par les difficultés de son identification ou de sa conservation. Cela peut plus profondément s’expliquer parce que, dès le départ, il célébre un événement ou conserve une mémoire qui peut être ou devenir une source de dissenssions et de conflits politiques. Enfin, sa reconnaissance suscite des gains économiques pour les uns mais des pertes pour les autres. Mais peut-être...
