Participe à 1 Session
Helena Wangefelt Ström is a PhD Candidate in Museology at Umeå University, Sweden. She is working on a thesis on heritagisation of religion as an act of control, employing a case study on early modern Swedish travellers to Rome and Venice. Her Master degree from Uppsala University in History of Ideas and Science (2011) explored the relation to Catholic artefacts and memories in 17th century Lutheran Orthodox Sweden. During past years she has been awarded the C M Lerici scholarship which allowed her to spend one academic year in Rome and Venice.
In the late 1990’s she was part of a cataloguing project on Queen Christina’s manuscript collection in the Vatican library. She has had several bursaries and scholarships from, among others, the Swedish Institute in Rome and the
Royal Swedish Academy of Letters, History and Antiquities, to work in libraries and archives in Rome and Venice.
Helena has co-arranged international workshops in Rome and Umeå connected to topics on religion, heritage and cultural contexts. She has presented papers in international conferences in various fields such as sociology of religion, cultural history and critical heritage studies, and arranged a session in the ACHS conference in Canberra (2014) on sacredness, heritage and authenticity. She is a member of research groups EMoDiR (Early Modern Religious Dissent and Radicalism, and UGPS (Umeå Group for Premodern Studies).
Helena has published articles in Swedish academic peer-reviewed journals, among which ”Heligt – Hotfullt – Historiskt. Kulturarvifieringen av det katolska i 1600-talets Sverige” (2011) in Lychnos, annual for History of Science and Ideas in Sweden. She has articles accepted and under preparation for an international anthology (planned for publication in 2016).
Research interests include contemporary heritage politics, uses of the sacred past, religious heritage in conflicts, religious controversy, early modern history, history of collections and museums, relics and sacred materiality, and Italian – Scandinavian relations in the early modern period.

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...
