About the Author

Emma Waterton holds an RCUK Fellowship in History and Heritage at Keele University. Her interests include unpacking the discursive constructions of 'heritage'; community involvement in the management of heritage; the divisions implied between tangible and intangible heritage; and the role played by visual media. Publications include the co-authored volume (with Laurajane Smith) Heritage, Communities and Archaeology (Duckworth 2009) and the co-edited volume (with Steve Watson) Culture, Heritage and Representations (Ashgate 2010). Steve Watson is a Principal Lecturer at York St John University, where he teaches tourism and heritage-related subjects. His interests are in the areas of cultural and heritage tourism and the social, cultural and representational processes by which places are transformed into tourist destinations. He is also concerned with the relationships between heritage and host communities and the nature of the interface between professional practice and community involvement in the formulation and construction of heritage. He has co-edited (with Emma Waterton) Culture, Heritage and Representations (Ashgate 2010).
