Anita Bakshi is an Instructor in the Department of Landscape Architecture at Rutgers University, where she teaches courses on Housing and Open Space Design, Visualization, and Research Methods. She is also an affiliated lecturer for the Cultural Heritage and Preservation Studies (CHAPS) Program, teaching courses on Heritage and Planning in Divided Cities and Cultural Heritage and Community Organizing. She has a Master of Architecture degree from the University of California Berkeley. Following several years in architectural practice in Chicago, California and the Foster+Partners Istanbul field office, she received her PhD in the History and Theory of Architecture from Cambridge University. Her PhD research with the Conflict in Cities Research Programme focused on space and memory in divided cities. Her research has focused on questions of mapping and representation for contested environments, and she has exhibited maps and drawings that document ethnographic research in partnership with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP). She engages in design research that explores new forms for monuments, memorials, and other commemorative structures. Current research investigates the role of landscape architecture and design in the Anthropocene era through a design proposal for a memorial that marks and describes environmental losses and enables collective mourning and healing. Recent publications include Urban Form and Memory Discourses in Contested Cities in the Journal of Urban Design (2014), and Trade and Exchange in Nicosias Common Realm in Post Ottoman Coexistence: Sharing Space in the Shadow of Conflict (2016).

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...

As Canada shifts from a resource-based economy to a knowledge-based economy, small communities that were established to service the primary sector are faced with a complex and unique set of challenges. They are communities built on a culture of hard work, resourcefulness, and creativity; their residents are now tasked with developing strategies to deal with a lack of employment, depopulation and resettlement.  Small is premised on the notion that leveraging the rich cultur...
