Caitlin Curtis is a PhD Candidate in the Department of Anthropology at the State University of New York at Buffalo. Her research interests include sustainability and heritage, critical heritage studies, cultural heritage management, and heritage tourism. Her dissertation research in particular utilizes an ethnographic methodology to examine the different uses and understandings of sustainability in the local contexts of two archaeological sites in Turkey: Aktopraklık Höyük (Akçalar, Bursa) and Çatalhöyük (Küçükköy, Konya). Using these results, she hopes to attune heritage practice at these sites to better fit with the local fabric. It was while completing research for her Master’s thesis, Planning for Heritage Preservation in Western Turkey: A GIS Approach to Archaeotourism and Agricultural Policy, that she discerned the problematic aspects of archaeologists imposing their plans for tourism and heritage development on local communities without adequately understanding local hopes for the future. This subsequently inspired her more critically minded dissertation research. In 2014, she received a joint junior residential fellowship in Cultural Heritage Management from Koç University’s Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations and the British Institute at Ankara to pursue her dissertation research in Istanbul, Turkey from September 2014-June 2015. She was awarded further dissertation support from the American Schools of Oriental Research, the Institute for European & Mediterranean Archaeology, and the University at Buffalo. Her work has been published in the journals Chronika (“Planning for Heritage Preservation in Western Turkey: a GIS Approach to Archaeotourism and Agricultural Policy.” Chronika 2 (2012): 42-54) and Sibirica (Hulse, E., D.M. Keeler, E.B.W. Zubrow, G. J. Korosec, I.Y. Ponkratova, and C. Curtis. “A Preliminary Report on Archaeological Fieldwork in the Kamchatka Region of Russia.” Sibirica 10 (1), Spring 2011: 48–74), and she has presented at conferences of the Society for American Archaeology, European Association of Archaeologists, and Association of American Geographers.

What does heritage change for tourism? | Le patrimoine, ça change quoi au tourisme? Ce débat veut interroger les relations entre le tourisme et le patrimoine et dépasser ainsi les idées reçues sur l'antagonisme entre le tourisme "corrupteur" et le patrimoine qui en serait la victime. Il s'agit donc de repenser le tourisme comme un réel acteur du patrimoine, de sa valorisation et de son appropriation, y compris par les populations locales. Cela présuppose, au p...

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...

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...
