El "espejo patrimonial". Ilusion narcisista o reflexiones multiples? [The "mirror equity". Illusion or multiple reflections narcissistic?]

Smith, Laurajane


This article argues that "heritage" is not a "thing", a place or an intangible event, rather it is a representation or a cultural process interested in negotiating, creating and recreating memories, values ​​and cultural meanings. This process is obscured by the authorized patrimonial discourse. The article takes a critical look at authorized heritage discourse and draws on three case studies from England to illustrate some of the cultural work that heritage representation does.
