Summary: "Cultural Heritage, Ethics and Contemporary Migrations breaks new ground in our understanding of the challenges faced by heritage practitioners and researchers in the contemporary world of mass migration, where people encounter new cultural heritage and relocate their own. The volume focuses particularly on issues affecting archaeological heritage sites and artefacts, which help determine and maintain social identity, a role problematised when populations are in flux as a result of immigration. This diverse and authoritative collection brings together international specialists to discuss socio-political and ethical implications for the management of archaeological heritage in global society. The authors come from a range of disciplinary backgrounds and include archaeologists, philosophers, cultural historians and custodians of cultural heritage. The result is a rich mix of contrasting yet complementary viewpoints and approaches. Among the topics discussed are the relations between culture and identity; the potentialities of museums and monuments to support or subvert a people's sense of who they are; and how cultural heritage has been used to bring together communities containing people of different origins and traditions, yet without erasing or blurring their distinctive cultural features. This book is a crucial text for archaeologists, curators, policy-makers and other workers in the heritage field, as well as for archaeologists, philosophers, political scientists and other readers interested in the links between immigration and cultural heritage"--
