Heritage Tourism and the Global Economy: The Values of Archaeology in the Experience Economy
Author(s): Uzi Baram
Recognizing the intellectual, social, and political economic terrain for archaeology is crucial for effective and meaningful work in the present, archaeologists have reflected on the colonial, imperialist, and nationalist context for research and representations of the material past. Since the 1990s tourism has grown as a concern particularly as heritage tourism has expanded greatly, offering opportunities for preservation and representation of the past. Through multiple examples, this poster includes the dynamics between economic development and historic preservation. The term value is explored in terms of the financial and the educational.
