Often we find that heritage sites by virtue of acquiring a global significance require a refreshing of their connect in the existing context. Here, ‘Locality’ means more than just the local community. This includes the larger non-physical contexts, like the deep structure of the milieu, its cultural and historic characteristics and the plural trajectories of interactive relationships in which institutions, local people and multiple perceptions about heritage and its dynamic historicity are vested. The main framework of enquiry into these complex relationships are:
a. Mutual re-signification of heritage and locality;
b. Tourism induced social transformations and planned release of economic potential;
c. Extending participatory decisions for sustenance of Heritage. Each webinar will be anchored by a local institution.
