  • Yes it refers to a plurality of voices. It can be either how a museum's narrative combines different perspectives, or how the museum can be participatory and let other voices be expressed.

  • This is the first time I see this too (even for this course that ran several times before), as educators, we are not involved in moderation, so I don't know what the deleted comments contained.

  • Thanks Howard for sharing this interesting example!

  • Thanks all for these interesting suggestions!

  • Thanks everybody for sharing your views on what Europe is for you!

  • Hello everybody, welcome to this course! I'm Jeremie, educator in this course. I hope you enjoy it!

  • Thanks everybody for following the course and for your participation to the discussions!

  • Thanks for sharing your opinions about virtual tours!

  • Thanks everybody for sharing on your countries' digital diplomacy!

  • Thanks a lot for your feedbacks on the survey, we will try to improve it for future runs.

  • Thanks everybody for sharing your experience!

  • Hello everybody, thanks for joining the course! I'm Jeremie, educator in this course. I hope you'll like it!

  • Thanks everybody for following this first week! I look forward to next week's discussions!

  • Thanks for sharing these numerous examples of intercultural exchanges happening from below and outside the formalised frameworks of cultural diplomacy

  • Thanks Karina for this great example which suggests that cultural years can help go beyond stereotypes and reach a deeper understanding of other countries’ culture.

  • Thanks Charlotte for sharing your experience!

  • Thanks everybody for these very rich comments that already tell us a lot about the different aspects of cultural diplomacy

  • Hi everybody and welcome to this course! I’m Jeremie, educator in this course. I’m glad to see the diversity of backgrounds and of interests that you all have! I’m looking forward to the discussions

  • I agree with you KerrieAnne. From what I know there have been only short-term assessment reports, but no studies of long term impacts for the world book capital city. These kinds of studies exist for other labels like the European Capital of Culture.

  • Thanks Mic for your comment. It is interesting to link heritage labels and the willingness of heritage sites to be retrieved on search engines. There is indeed a great impact of digital technologies on the way people interact with their heritage and the kind of attention they give to particular sites.

  • Thanks everybody for these examples of heritage labels and networks!

  • Thanks Vic for your comment. The video gives an example of contested heritage, and there are other illustrations in following steps. The notion of contested heritage refers to conflicts and contentions surrounding heritage. There are very different configurations, this is why we prefer illistrating it through empirical examples rather than giving a closed...

  • Thanks Anna for your comment and for bringing up this very important subject. There have been increasing discussions in Europe on the return of stolen artefacts, and i think we will see a number of initiatives in the future to deal with this problematic aspect of the colonial past and return these objects to where they belong

  • Thanks to all for sharing about your cities’ diversity in the past and in the present!

  • Hello everybody, thanks for joining the course! I’m Jeremie, educator in this course. I hope you enjoy it

  • Thanks KerrieAnne for signalling the link didn't work, I will update it now.

  • Many thanks everybody for sharing about your experience of gentrification!

  • Thanks for all these examples that give insights into the second life that planners manage to give to urban heritage

  • Thanks everybody for these diverse examples that show the different facets of industrial heritage!

  • Hello Alison, yes, from what i know, they are still active today

  • Thanks everybody for sharing your reflections! This gives a good overview of what international organisations can do. One the one hand, some suggest international organisations should provide assistance, education, expertise to better manage heritage sites. On the other hand, others think their role in to rais awareness, and encourage authorities to protect...

  • Thanks for this interesting example that shows how the civil society can mobilise for the city’s heritage.

  • Thanks everybody for sharing about your country's heritage governance!

  • Thanks KerrieAnne, I have updated the link!

  • Thanks both! This is very interesting indeed to see how the concept of heritage in the Dutch language has circulated around the world!

  • Thanks everybody for your examples!

  • Thanks Margaret for your comment. You are right to point at this issue. There is an increasing mobilisation of heritage to define an "us" as opposed to an "other" as part of xenophobic or racist discourses. In my view, this is a hijacking of the notion of heritage. As economists say, heritage is a "non dividable good", which means that sharing it does not...

  • Thanks Naftali for sharing your thoughts!

  • Thanks Saba for sharing this interesting example. Indeed, it may seem counter intuitive to cite a for-profit enterprise as an example of cultural heritage. But you show very well how it has become part of the local community's life and story. We could think of various other examples in which a company has had an impact on the character and the identity of the...

  • Thanks a lot to everyone for sharing about your cities heritage. It is very interesting and gives already a good idea of the different kinds of city heritage

  • Hello everybody, I'm Jeremie, educator in this course. Welcome and thanks for joining! I'm looking forward to reading your comments.

  • Hi Michael, thanks for your question! Here is my answer. The goal of our course is to question the impacts of new technologies on culture. here we are trying to reflect on the way it affects the symbolic value of art. The market value of artworks, has a strong impact on the way it is perceived socially.
