John Stallmeyer and Lynne Dearborn Publish Chapter
Stallmeyer and Dearborn’s chapter, entitled “Erasure and Appearance: A Critical View on Urban Heritage Management Practices in China, Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam,” explores the processes of erasures and appearances that occur as a consequence of urban heritage designation. Viewing the two processes as inextricably linked, Stallmeyer and Dearborn argue that while erasure is a common theme of urban heritage discourse, appearance necessarily accompanies erasure as particular aspects of urban heritage-scapes are valorized and de-valorized by urban heritage management regimes.
The chapter is dedicated to our late colleague Jim Warfield, who graciously contributed a photo to the chapter. Read more about the book.
