About the course:
The course uses a broad definition of "heritage", both as a central field of knowledge and an analytical perspective. The course gives students practical approaches to regulations and the administration of cultural and natural heritage from a local to a global level. You will carry out, individually or in a group, a project whose applied specialisation will be chosen together with an academic supervisor and a local resident on the island of Gotland. Through your project, you will apply a natural and cultural heritage perspective on tourism and destination development. The use of cultural and natural resources is thereby related to questions about power, influence and democracy, and also how value patterns and conceptions influence how social, cultural and ecological sustainability is created in local and regional contexts.
