We’ve just received a very crisp copy of Engaging Heritage, Engaging Communities which Julian has contributed a chapter to.
His chapter is titled Museums and the Symbolic Capital of Social Media Space and joins an expert list of contributions to a volume which forms part of the Heritage Matters series. It is a series of edited and single-authored volumes which addresses the whole range of issues that confront the cultural heritage sector facing the global challenges of the 21st century.
In their introduction to the book, editors Bryony Onciul, Michelle L Stefano and Stephanie Hawke explain that the book first started its journey in 2009 and followed on from a conference held in Newcastle.
The two-day conference sparked discussions on heritage, museums and community engagement that, over the years, have influenced and shaped this volume.
The book is available from this Friday (27th Jan).
