The presentation considers the methodological challenge of exploring global heritage governmentality as a “halfie” anthropologist belonging at once to the academic community and to the epistemic community associated with the implementation of the UNESCO Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage. As Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) domains overlap with the traditional objects of anthropological research, anthropologists are “natural” interlocutors for heritage organisations and bureaucracies at international, national and local levels. This often-serendipitous complicity is a key methodological condition for exploring global heritage governmentality by following the social life of the UNESCO ICH Convention along the trajectory of its implementation.
Chiara Bortolotto is a research associate at the Institut interdisciplinaire d’anthropologie du contemporain. Her research focuses on global heritage governance and is based on multiscale and multipositioned ethnography. She is the principal investigator of the project “UNESCO frictions: Heritage-making across global governance” at the École des hautes études en sciences sociales (Paris). In 2013-2014 she was a visiting EURIAS fellow at Cambridge University at the Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH). From 2010 to 2013 she was a Marie Curie fellow at the Free University of Brussels (Laboratoire d’Anthropologie des Mondes Contemporains Lamc). She has edited Le patrimoine culturel immatériel: enjeux d’une nouvelle catégorie (Maison des sciences de l’homme, Paris, 2011) and published several articles on UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage policies.
