LAND: The management of cultural heritage in marginalised coastal communities

Awarded: NOK 3.0 mill.

The cultural heritage management works within the political, economic, cultural and social reality of the modern society not the past society. The sum of priorities does not always mirror the diversity throughout time and space. One typical category of la ndscape to be left out is what we call the marginalised coastal communities. This project aims at investigating the cultural heritage resources of this landscape type as well as its potential. Another field of inquiry is to establish a professional networ k and introduce new methods and strategies for a new management regime with active participation of the local population and the municipal administration. The project brings together different research disciplines, different management levels and institut ions that have no tradition for cooperation.
