Description

In 1979 Dubrovnik was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site, which had consequences for the city's broader cultural heritage. In Walls and Gateways Celine Motzfeldt Loades explores how this status intersects with the reconstruction and consolidation of identities and locality in the city’s post-war context. She analyses how representations, perceptions and uses of Dubrovnik’s heritage are embedded in particular cultural practices, materiality and place. In Dubrovnik’s post-war context, different uses of cultural memory and heritage provoke both dissonance and unity, shape practices and mobilize cultural and political activism.
