Covert Erasure and Agents of Change in the Heritage City

Sterling, Colin. 2020. ‘Covert Erasure and Agents of Change in the Heritage City’. In: V. Apaydin (ed.) Critical Perspectives on Cultural Memory and Heritage: Construction, Transformation and Destruction. London: UCL Press, 67-83

Delighted to have a chapter in this new volume edited by Veysel Apaydin, which looks at questions of heritage and destruction from a range of theoretical, historical and geographical perspectives. My chapter considers questions of heritage-washing, monopoly rent, and the politics of ‘change management’ as a model for urban preservation.

The whole volume can be downloaded for free from UCL Press.
