Synopses & Reviews
The topic of intangible natural heritage is new, and emerging as an important subject of inquiry. It describes the untouchable elements of the environment that combine to create natural objects, and help define our relationship to them. These elements can be sensory, like the sound of a landscape, or processes like natural selection. As a concept, intangible natural heritage is growing in prominence, as museums are increasingly charged with safeguarding and interpreting the milieux from which their objects originate.
Intangible Natural Heritage assembles a diversity of approaches as a platform for further discussion and research. Bringing together eleven thinkers from around the world who have helped advance the field, this book is the first cohesive review of intangible natural heritage as a field of study.
