Maintenance matters. Exploring common context of heritage (e)valuation

The purpose of the project is to explore enduring values and meanings found within common contexts of ‘maintenance and repair’ (craftsmanship; built heritage designation; homeowners engagement) in an urban setting. These contexts are considered as core heritage phenomena that enable for ‘the past’ to endure and remain in our contemporary modern world.

The purpose of Elena’s WP2: Valuing the past: cultural heritage as socio-spatial co-constructionis to map the evaluative practices of different groups of stakeholders engaged in the maintenance of buildings-as-heritage, and trace how the value is created through “productive frictions” of different valuation principles in the process of maintenance and repair. Her other current research activity relates to storytelling as citizen participation technology in built heritage designation.
