"What does heritage change?" is a multifaceted  question to which the answer(s) are in primary respects related to real-life negotiations among different groups of citizens, cultures, races, ethnic groups, sexual identities, and social classes about received, official and/or widely accepted or accomodated intangible attributes, cultural traditions, historic monuments, buildings, and other transmitted or revived historical legacies. Heritage designated by and for whom, for what motivations, and towards what ends constitues fundamental  criteria to clearly discern and identify the nature and import of change. 
Sweeping African American condemnation of heritage-racism carved, etched, built, performed, and flown in honor of local and national heritage provides a critical summon  and general framework for baseline questions, challenges, and options about what change heritage professionals in all cultures and places should consider.
Look around the Critical Heritage conference halls, see and hear who is present and who is not, ask yourself why, and consider what heritage change you should-can make.
Prof. James Count Early will be introoduced by Prof. Michelle L. Stefano
