Question

I am conducting research in the area of heritage planning and conservation. Heritage Impact Assessment(HIA) is necessary before any kind of change or development in the built environment around a heritage site within a defined regulated area to determine its impacts on the potential of heritage. In India, it has now become mandatory by the National Monument Authority (NMA) in case of any centrally protected monument. Visual Impact Assessment is a very important component of an HIA to asses any future impact on the overall landscape of the place around the heritage site. To be precise, according to NMA guidelines, it is required to check the skyline concerning the heritage site, any visual obstruction in views of the heritage site, shadow on the heritage site due to new development, and consideration from building design bye-laws.
Guideline for HIA by NMA can be found here: https://www.nma.gov.in/documents/20126/51838/HIA+Report.pdf
From the available example of HIA reports, I understood that experts are using 3D software, first to model the existing structures and then adding the proposed structure to generate the views in the form of images/renders to visualise the projected development. Sometimes, it is done by only drawing a section and marking the human eye angle. I am not sure how they are validating these views. From these images/renders only, one can not say very definitively whether these are accurate or not. Also, I am unsure about the view/camera point selection.
I have not been able to find any study on the assessment of the overall visual quality of the surrounding area due to new changes.
It would be great if you know of any study or documents or share some light on this.

In my opinion, the formation of electronic jurisdiction of the metaverse is inevitable.
The question is, should we follow the theories of John Barlow and Lawrence Lessig, concepts such as the Common Heritage of Mankind, the Westphalian projection, or should we start building e-jurisdiction "from scratch"? Colleagues, I am interested in your opinion and views.
Thank you.

Answer
Oleksii Kostenko Yes, there should definitely be an electronic jurisdiction. This is of utmost importance to avoid chaos and to establish order and justice in the electronic domain. Without any jurisdiction, creating an order based on law and justice would be very difficult to provide.

Arts and culture and creativity - both material and immaterial heritage, skills and competences - are resources that should be protected and promoted. They not only contribute to the realisation of the SDGs, but also make them possible to a special degree. Only culturally sensitive, creative, unconventional approaches to solutions ensure the success of measures to achieve the SDGS.
Why does art not appear explicitly in the SDGS? But purely as a cross-cutting issue?
Relevant answer
Answer
Rolf, I could not agree more. artistic thinking, not only as cultural heritage, should be part of our DNA when solving problems. not only in SDGs and climate change, but also intimes of war (see https://www.inplaceofwar.net/; https://theaterofwar.com/).

Hi, I am an anthropology PhD student, with a background of media sociology. Based on the concept of "site of memory" by Pierre Nora, I am currently trying to develop a method to analyze memory politics, by defining "memory" as a flow traveling among the place (I mean a heritage site), the media, and the people.
I am looing for references, especially from the field of heritage studies, memory studies and media studies, outlining the relation of site-media-people. Does anyone have suggestion?
By now, I have read literatures by Astrid Erll, Nick Couldry, Anna Reading, Ann Rigney, and James Wertsch.

Hello researchers,
I am working on mining heritage and tourism development for around four years now. I feel that my research topic is relatively new and fewer people are working in this field. Hence, I want to develop an academic network of people with similar interests so that collaboration may happen, and I can get more work opportunities and vice-versa. So, what is the correct way to find people with similar interests, what is the correct approach, and how to spread my own work to a greater audience who are interested in my research and capable to give the right feedbacks?

Are personally posted images and videos of museum collections, artifacts, and sites a good source of advertisement and marketing? Do they act as an effective advertisement for more physical in-person visitation, or, replace a desire for physical visitation?

Recently, a wave of opposition was directed to the winners of a UNESCO and UIA organized competition for the rehabilitation on Al Nouri mosque area in Al Mousel, Iraq. The rational is based on the winners’ proposal to restore the mosque as it used to be but inject a more contemporary spirit in the surroundings. My pisition, is historical buildings should be restored but its context should be a represention of our contemporary time and using the architectural spaces and visual language which respect the uniqueness of the heritage but not copying in a superficial manner. I appreciate your thoughts. Thank you.
Relevant answer
Answer
In the special case of Al-Nouri mosque, reconstructing the original mosque will have a psychological effect on the city inhabitants- or at least that is the assumption made by UNESCO and the SUNNI endowment responsible for the project- as a sign of victory over vandalism and destruction. there were some precedents in history to typical reconstruction of monuments that represented national landmarks, like the tower of Venice. However, the winning project promised some contemporary additions to the interior, like opening parts of the new roof or skylight, which will put a contemporary mark on the project.

I'm working on my thesis right now about relationship between sport heritage values and supporter's sense of place (of the city they live in). I had the idea that I should first measure the general sense of place using a likert scale system of several statement similar to those of Willams and Vaske (2003) and Jorgenson & Stedman (2001).
Then I had the idea to compose statements (also in likert scale format) regarding the sports club (the ''sense of the sports club'' as it were) that I based on sport heritage factors/values I explored in the theoretical framework.
So in short: I want to measure two different sets of likert scale data from the SAME respondent group and then I want to measure if there is a correlation between the sport heritage data outcome and the sense of place data outcome. As in for example: does a high 'sense of sportsclub' result in a higher sense of place compared to a lower sense of sportsclub?
Now comes my question(s): Is this a good idea? and so yes, how to measure this? Which statistical analysis should I use or is it maybe better to make sport heritage statements with only yes/no answers? Or am I tackling it the wrong way? (statistical analysis isn't my strong suit)
Any advice is welcome!
Relevant answer
Answer
You could use item analysis with Cronbach's alpha for reliability on both 'sense of sport club' Likert type items and 'sense of place' Likert type items to define how to calculate 'test' scores for both, and then calculate the Pearson correlations between the 2 test scores.

Interactional sociolinguistics is a really good way. I suggest as a pre-survey a questionnaire identifying most used strategies, for example: "do you do XXX when you interact with your child?"

Barracks, Forts and Ramparts: Regeneration Challenges for Portsmouth Harbour's Defence Heritage, by Celia Clark with Martin Marks OBE. Tricorn Books 2020. ISBN 9781912821648. 450 pages, illustrations, bibliographies, references, index. Available from celiadeane.clark@btopenworld.com £40 + £4 postage and packing (UK); overseas postage costs on request. This book is a successor to Celia Clark and Samer Bagaeen's earlier book: Sustainable Regeneration of Former Military Sites (Routledge 2016).
Portsmouth Harbour's long history of defending the nation - and recent experience of how the local ex-defence sites have found new civilian life - offer useful lessons for other once defence-dominated communities seeking new roles for their specialised physical legacy. The harbour contains in microcosm all the challenges as well as impressive examples of how to repurpose historic defence sites. This new book ends with an agenda for further research of this widespread but under-reported land use change at international level.

Interpreting heritage as cultural capital has a clear parallel with the definition of environment as natural capital.
Economic valuation of heritage investment evolved from methods traditionally
used in environmental economics.
The hedonic price method, widely used in urban economics, is emerging
as a better tool for evaluating heritage-related investments.
Cultural projects contribute to urban livability, attracting talent, and providing an
enabling environment for job creation. It also provide unemployed unskilled labor the jobs via tourism, associated FDI, managerial and spillover effect in the peripheral area via knowledge based firms investments/business.
Development is by nature a joint public and private effort. Historic city Core, heritage development and under utilized land use require adaptive reuse aka balanced conservation
Cultural Heritage has 3 aspects of value assessment
1. Market value measured with 5 different approaches likes cost and revenue analysis, social cost benefit analysis, using rational expectations via revealed and stated preferences, travel cost analysis and hedonic value analysis( information change in properties/real state values of local area especially via geographical information system)
2. Non market value/non use-value. It is of three kind’s like that natural capital value analysis. Existence value of heritage, option value of that heritage and bequest/legacy value for intergenerational concerns.
3. Cultural value. It is multidimensional and includes aesthetic, symbolic, spiritual, social, religious and traditional etc. aspects. It includes tangible cultural value natural as well as manmade, intangible value like traditions/production methods etc.
In recent years, a new form of investment, known as impact investment funds, has emerged in the market. Th e impact investment funds are designed as a socially responsible investment not driven exclusively by profit and generally targeted toward addressing heritage, environmental, and social issues. Impact investment is defined as actively placing capital in businesses and funds that generate social or environmental good and a range of returns to the investor.

Keenly looking suggestions about the prospect and challenges of scientific study in Heritage, Indigeneity and Folklore Studies (HIFS) at the educational institution around the world.
Relevant answer
Answer
Contrary to what we're taught, tradition is not a static thing. Times change, generations change, and what we know changes. The most stable aspect of any tradition may be its ability to change, making it able to accommodate changing times, changing generations and changing information. Otherwise, no matter how old and once revered, a tradition can disappear like a magician's bouquet, to resurface if--and only if--it becomes timely and relevant again.
If this were not true, we would all still be sacrificing animals on hilltops to reach the ears of our various gods; on the other hand, we can retain a tradition by reinterpreting it. Eighty years ago the majority of people in the USA believed that the story of Adam and Eve was the natural history of the world. Some still do. But the mainstream no longer does, and has retained the tradition by reinterpreting it as an allegory, or poetry, about the beginning of time and the fate of mortals. Where we locate the sacred realm (in the celestial dome or the womb of the earth), our aesthetics, assumptions, aspirations and animosities will shape every aspect of our expressive behavior, and every mark we leave on earth.
We have to trust people to recreate the past, interpret the present and shape the future in their own best interest--no outsider knows better what that is. To best respect tradition, we have to stand back and watch it change, and seek in those changes, the spirit and mentality of the people who generate, modify and maintain these traditions over time, free of molestation from those who purport to know better than they.
Its only when powerful outsiders interfere in the process of a peoples' own strategic and creative changes in tradition, or try to take over; to guide, shape, change, or prevent change in tradition, that harm is done. Instead, stand by. Watch. And learn. Speak out when powerful interests try to take over a peoples' traditions to suit their own interests and agendas. Then let life happen, let tradition adjust, and learn what we can from the changes. Some things will inevitably be lost, yes--but some will always be gained. Watching and learning would be us at our most respectful and creative. If it seems an imperfect solution, its still most likely the best we can do.

can we really, by the conversion of industrial buildings, consider them heritage
Relevant answer
Answer
Its an interesting question that has been debated in heritage circles for decades. In Perth, we have a large industrial site, the former WA Goverment Railway Workshops at Midland, which has been empty since the Workshops closed in 1994. From 1998-2006 I led a project to collect and preserve the site's history and pubish research, resulting in several books, academic papers and digital resources as well as oral history and archival collections. In 2004 the site was declared a heritage icon and placed on the State Heritage Register, but some "modifications" had already been made (the demolition of the building where women made munititions during WWII being one). One building has been partially repurposed as a medical centre (a building built within one of the main blocks). The exteriors of the main buildings have been cleaned and mostly retain their original appearance. Some of the buildings have been sold, and some of the empty space has been converted to other uses, but this seems necessary. Much of the site is still unused, with vast empty spaces. The site is too big to retain all buildings as a museum, unless someone was prepared to put significant amounts of money into it. I still have hopes that some part of the site will be converted into a rail heritage museum. I believe that recognising the site's heritage value, even if parts of it are altered, was the salvation of the Workshops; otherwise I think the buildings would have been demolished and there would be nothing left to mark the State's largest industrial site.

the need to seek solidarity, empathy and humanitarianism, can be related to forms of collective care through culture, literature, heritage
Relevant answer
Answer
In the words of the American poet Emily Dickenson, "beauty (just) is". Esthetic appreciation at her level of definition is neither human nor naturally made - rather, both. As people can admire both, humans creating it on the one hand, and appreciating it (the natural) on the other, the drive to create beauty and to admire it can be seen as fundamental human drives. As such (to borrow from William Hazlitt and Matthew Arnold) "touchstones" drawn from what humans understand as "the beautiful" culturally (and, naturally) can be classified as "archetypes" (Northrop Frye) and the commonality of appreciation across different human societies forms a kind of amorphous, free-floating cultural bond as strong in its existence as the urge to compete - another fundamental human drive. The coeval relationship between fundamental human drives such as appreciating / making beauty and the need to compete ought to be studied in connection to human societies on a strength-per-strength basis vis a vis each other. Trivially-speaking, my own take on what constitutes utopias and dystopias in my western bias derive strongly from the Attic (ancient Athenian Greek) writer Plato, who rather strongly intimates that beauty (human creation of it) ought only "glorify the state," - which Plato rather disingenuously refers to as "the philosopher king" - the wise all-knower and owner of the beauty (& everything else, including his/her "subjects") - and that it has been this bias in western civilization from then on (in Europe mostly) that has lead dreamers like Thomas More to scribe the positive fantasies perfect men might create as a society, but which tempered writers like, say, George Orwell, in the 20th Century, showed as real-case scenarios occurring in Eastern Europe (if situated in his fiction in England) in the ultimate of dystopian narratives. This novel of his ACTUALLY DESCRIBED the goings-on, as such, in Stalinist-Leninist dictatorships. In fine, I hold with Emily over Plato in her, some might say, "romantic" definition of beauty. It can certainly, yes, be as a glorification of the state (Robert Frost, the poet, reading encomiums at John F. Kennedy's inauguration. Then again, it could also be Louis XVIs's court sculptors doing for Louis in stone what few could achieve. But then again, it can - and often seeks to be - simply free. (Keyword, that: "free.")

Gehan Selim, VR is/will be accessible via the smart devices the very vast majority, globally, all have in their hands, one of the obstacles in nonetheless, internet access; wherever VR /AR is used, it best accompanied with free wifi, as for many that is an expensive threshold.

In general, digital technologies such as VR/AR are very interesting, but by nature, they are not the original. Standing next to the real Cheops pyramid, is the real impressive experience.

Up until this point I have found closure in the understanding that it is an analogical answer, and thus very personal and beyond total grasp, but I wonder if there is a more logical approach to understanding this question.

North America is largely a continent of immigrants who need and want to be acculturated to the existing majority, at least to a considerable extent if they are to prosper and feel comfortable. The physical images of the country's varied heritages, including those of the specific immigrants, are visual clues to things that the newcomers are told. Heritage also offers existing residents visual alternatives to whatever is being built and discussed at the moment. Postmodernism, to give the most obvious example, would not have existed without examples of pre-modernism. School children and adults come to understand that the past was not like the present if they see physical examples of differences between past and present. People gain a sense of being rooted and even comforted if they think that their home communities have been there for a long time; physical examples give evidence of that. These are just the first three minutes of a reply.

Fossils are pieces of the planet evolutionary history, because of that are considered geological heritage. However, in several countries is common and legal its trade. This could be risk for this heritage? Which is the best practice to preserve this heritage?
Relevant answer
Answer
Es importante preservar nuestro patrimonio geológico, porque en el se encuentra los datos sobre la evolución del planeta tierra y de la vida tal como la conocemos hoy día. Es evidente que todo material que se presta en nuestra sociedad a un tráfico comercial es muy solicitado en el mercado; es decir que mientras haya personas o entidades que demandan su consumo habrá personas o entidades que lo ofrezcan de manera legal o ilegal. Caben dos soluciones: la coercitiva con leyes a favor de la protección y sanciones de tipo punitivo ( inhabilitación, multas, cárcel...) y la que yo creo que es mas adecuada y a largo plazo que es la concienciación social a través de la educación, los valores culturales, el conocimiento, la divulgación y la colaboración entre el estamentos científico y el resto de la población. En la primera solución se aminoraría el problema pero no se evitaría al tráfico ilegal puesto que es un mercado que mueve mucho dinero. En el segundo caso el conocimiento de la importancia que puede tener estos elementos patrimoniales para un pueblo ( como recurso económico propio, como recurso turístico, como propietario y defensores de un legado que hay que proteger...) crearía una conciencia social y un sentimiento identitario donde los elementos simbólicos y las posibles sanciones sociales impedirían con mucha mas eficiencia la perdida de este importante patrimonio.

Since Turkey is located in the Mediterranean macroclimate region in the sub-tropical zone, great rainfall variations can be seen between the years. at the north part, extreme rainfall and flood hazards and at the south and south-west part overheating are among main problems. However, the severity and of these variations is different from region to region. how can we define the most risky region, which its built heritage will be affected more in terms of future climate change?
Relevant answer
Answer
This is a multi-factor problem. Good question, but the answer is not so simple
You'll have to model each (sub-region) individually for future effects of rainfall and temperature ranges but also look at wind patterns and storm events.
You will then need to look at the heritage stock and assess how the building fabric responds to the new (modelled) climatic realities. You can do so by looking at the performance and response to climatic events over the past 30 years . Look at the extreme events and possibly use them as new normal.
The next issue will be the state of the heritage assets and the funding that currently goes into maintenance, both private funding for private buildings and public monies for community-owned assets. What is the trend here? That trend can be forward projected.
You will then also need to take into account the projected impact of climate change on the economic capacity of the private citizens and of the local governments. That will vary from region to region, but will have an impact on the future capacity and willingness to pay for repairs.
When you have all of this in hand, you ned to develop a set of evaluation criteria with relative weighting , which then provide you with a numeric value of future risk that incorporates environmnetal and socio-economic factors.

What measures should be taken today to protect the architectural monuments of world heritage?
Relevant answer
Answer
Today, we are all overwhelmed and distressed after wittnessing the terrible fire on Notre Dâme Cathedral of Paris. I saw this live on tv, yesterday, and I couldn't help crying.
As I gather, from the news, the fire was aparently started from misconducted conservation works on the monument. Should we then not conserve and care for our monuments?
The positive side of this is that new restoration is possible, as much of the original medieval Art resisted . The magnificient medieval vitrals are nearly intact, whereas the 19th century wooden works and vitrals were affected. Modern works seam not to be so resistant to times when compared to original craft...
The second positive note is that such splendorous work of art was so well depicted over time and on interactive photografic and video sites, that 3D reconstruction , through 3D modern printers can fully recover the damage done.
In this sense, modern works of reconstruction have evolved, to become dependable on our efforts to keep photografic memory track of our Universal Heritage.
I have confidence and Faith in our future and in Art.

Why is it missing the Islamic Arab heritage and its scholars of the study of the sign in Western studies of modern and contemporary ?, although Ibn Sina, who lived in the twelfth century. He actively attends the presentation of De Saussure, who lived in the nineteenth century in his work (healing). Abu Hamid al-Ghazali, who lived in the twelfth century, and put forward the concept of the sign and is very close to the references presented by Charles Sanders Pierce, who lived in the nineteenth century in his book (the standard of science). Abdul elkahar Jarjani who lived in the twelfth century, almost a reference for Roland Barthes in particular on the question of semantics of denotation and connotation (miracle signs in the science of meanings) ???
That is why some scholars to say contemporary that the concept of the sign in recent studies, in accordance with the semantic concept in the Arab and Islamic heritage, and is based on the Islamic world view, as an indication of the presence of the Creator (GOD ) in his interpretation of the semantic notion in Islamic thought and compensated by the sign in semiotics.

Answer
I agree with your pointing but I would add that almost all researchers in the field are failing to study the medieval study of the sing, they are mostly focused on the relationship between modal logics and some nominalists and the pragmatic semiotics but very few studies on the relationship between medieval semiotics (in general and specifically the Universals issues) and the semiologie and slavic semiotics.
A collegue of mine is now working on the relationship between semiologie and Thomas Aquina, but I agree with you that there are vert little work on the islamic sign studies.
I work on digital media's semiotics but I am really interested in the medieval thinking on the topic so if you have some work on it I would be glad to read and reccomend.

Question

When use value is perceived by contemporaries as lower than non-use value, heritage is perceived as a public or common good and its value is perceived as bequest and non-tangible. In this case, most of the society feels the need of protecting heritage for the future generations due to its historic legacy and the willingness to keep it towards future generations (Fig. 2).
The biggest challenge occurs, however, when the difference between use and non-use value of heritage is minor or difficult to identify. Considering a hypothetical piece of heritage that no-one actually likes except a narrow group of experts, the average value for the asset may be very low. The perceived benefits will be then lower than the costs of conserving it and economic logic would dictate that it is not conserved for the sake of a few people (Provins et al. 2008)

Relevant answer
Answer
Hello Adil,
Great suggestion by Dr. Yadollahi!
Dr Kramer´s suggestion about symbols is absolutely correct, ... using the appropriate symbols for your mapping, and defining them in a clear, non ambiguous manner is absolutely necessary for the map to communicate the spatial relations that your research has identified. Nothing is more frustrating than studying a map with symbols not explained by the keys. Said in another way, map symbols should have clear, absolute meanings.... spatial relations of these symbols will more than likely be subject to dynamic, sometimes fuzzy, contextual and even unclear meanings pending further data. Intangible heritage may have this kind of mapping characteristic... my humble advice, is for you not to worry too much about "getting it right" at once , but do look at the relations and re-examine them constantly,... spatial relations have a habit of lying hidden sometimes, until we ask the "right" question.

Albert Nungaray I completely agree; I live in Chicago and several people in the Native community here were born and raised in the city, and as a result their indigeneity is questioned by those in reservation communities. It's frustrating and sad to see that legacies of colonization have led us to argue about "who's really Native" but I concur with your idea that blaming people for holding on to what they have isn't helpful either.
I know our youth here are very active in both the Native community and politically; we've had some visit D.C. to protest, and one especially bright young person has met former President Obama through Gen-I Native. It's really awe-inspiring to see these kids thrive and reclaim their cultural heritages.

Is local cultural heritage as important as the heritage of humanity?
Relevant answer
Answer
I agree with Peter's view, and not just because we are both archaeologists & ethnographers. The "heritage of humanity" would be the sum of many distinctly unique local kinds of cultural practices and heritage. As anthropologists, we look for regularities across all human behaviors, past & present, to better understand how humans have evolved. However, the use of more scientific methods in ethnography (i.e., behavioral ecology) and archaeology are relatively recent. We are far from developing sweeping theoretical knowledge about human behavior in general or many important aspects of how smaller-scale adaptations in the great diversity of environments where humans live have developed (cultural heritage). The capacity for behavioral plasticity appears to be a hallmark of human behavior, we adapt to new areas through variation in cultural mechanisms, not biological speciation. Most of us spend our careers working to improve our understanding of a small set of human activities we can study in the present or through archaeological remains, and developing the next questions we need for research that will situate that knowledge productively for our improved sophistication in addressing related or novel questions. For many practical modern global solutions, local cultural heritage is the source of significant new knowledge (for example, traditional medicines used by subsistence peoples around the world help identify compounds that can be synthesized and added to the industrialized worlds collective medical knowledge). From a researchers' perspective, we work concretely with the kinds of data we can generate about local cultural practices to better understand the diversity of human cultural variation, and our heritage as humans with a much more vast experience of the natural world than the short time period since the industrial revolution. The "heritage of humanity" would be an anthropological goal of understanding better the breadth and variation in our cultural practices, knowledge, and how these capacities have evolved.

Conflict is sacrosanct. Interest conflict is permanent. It may be intra urban or inter urban conflict. If you look at Africa and other developing technologies of the world. You will notice element of this kind of conflict. It maybe because of boundaries, land, water and other heritage. Look at the crisis between Israel and Palestine. Interest is a major player. Land and occupant of lands. That's interest conflict. Look at Sudan and South Sudan conflict interest challenge. Tutsi and hutsi in Rwanda, Nigeria and Cameron over bakkasi peninsula.
Conflict interest is the center of all conflict. No conflict without interest. International conflict watchers understand that the world is at war often because of states interest. Even in trade and investment relationships between states, conflict of interest leads to disagreements, 2018 sino-American trade disputes. North Korea and America nuclear negotiations deadlock deal, the American Iran nuclear weapons negotiations deal or agreement put down.
Throughout the globe, interest of the states leads to conflict. So conflict is key and interest birth conflict.
Your choice on urban conflict interest is good. So you should study conflict within state in country. In Nigeria, you can use the pastoral and farmers conflict to analyze your point.
