THE UNIVERSITY OF HONG KONG DEPARTMENT OF SOCIOLOGY and CENTRE FOR ANTHROPOLOGICAL RESEARCH jointly present a Seminar on 'OUR COMMON HERITAGE: NEW TOURIST NATIONS, POSTSOCIALIST PEDAGOGY, AND THE GLOBALIZATION OF NATURE IN RUSSIA AND CHINA' (joint work with Jana Breidenbach) This paper is about the differing ways in which the globalization of “heritage” by the UNESCO’s World Heritage Programme is appropriated in two postsocialist countries with booming tourism. While World Natural Heritage is used for tourism development in China, it is deployed against it in Russia. The discussion of the reasons sheds light on the differing modes of governmentality and visions of development in the two countries. by Dr. NYĺRI Pál 2:00 - 4:00 PM Monday, May 9, 2005 Room 1118, K.K.
