Gastprof. Dr. Nebojša Čamprag will give a lecture titled „Urban heritage in transformation– sustainable urban development or commodification of culture” in the frames of the International Lecture Series, with the overall topic of Urban Heritage Preservation on Thursday, March 12th.
During the last few decades we have witnessed comprehensive socio-political, economic and technological changes that imposed reformulation of common values, but also significant transformation of our cities. In such economy-driven transformative process, cultural production and cultural consumption often took over the crucial role. This imposed cultural heritage to gain on importance in urban development strategies, but at the same compromised its intrinsic meanings for the purpose of political or economic gains. This lecture will analyze different cities from diverse European and global contexts to illustrate the potentials of relying on cultural heritage in urban development strategies, but also its highly contested nature that can jeopardize sustainable urban transformation.
