Participe à 1 Session
Qingkai Ma is a PhD candidate from Zhejiang University. Under the supervision of Professor Wu Zongjie, he has been doing critical heritage studies, aiming at finding discursive resources and proper ways of re-narrating Chinese heritage and establishing indigenous heritage discourse. He has been participating several heritage conservation projects in Zoucheng, Shandong province where Mencius was born and in Hangzhou which used to be the capital of the Southern Song Dynasty (1127 A. D.-1279 A. D.). These research projects provide opportunities for him to reach out from the Ivory Tower and participate in conserving urban heritage in these cities. The projects arise from the current needs of these cities to search for their cultural identity and to reactivate the past of the cities for future development. In his research he combines the following methodologies to make new meanings for different places by forming narratives based on different sorts of data: ethnographic field work, historical records including local gazetteers and discourse analysis, etc. His research involves lots of ethnographic field work and negotiation with different communities, government agencies and experts from other disciplines. Qingkai Ma has participated in writing two books entitled Interpreting the Belt and Road Intiative and 100 Questions & Answers About the Belt and Road Intiative. He wrote one chapter in the two books respectively in which he advocated deep understanding of cultures in the countries along the Belt and Road through in-depth ethnographic studies during the realization of the Belt and Road Initiative.

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...

Most of what we experience as heritage emerges into conscious recognition through a complex mixture of political and ideological filters, including nationalism.  In these processes, through a variety of devices (museums, scholarly research, consumer reproduction, etc.), dualistic classifications articulate a powerful hierarchy of value and significance.  In particular, the tangible-intangible pair, given legitimacy by such international bodies as UNESCO, reproduces a selective ordering of cul...
