Cultural Heritage and the Re-construction os Identities after Conflict

CRIC Identity and conflict.
Cultural heritage and the re- construction of identities after conflict.

This EU-funded project aims to investigate the identity impact of the destruction and subsequent selective reconstruction of cultural heritage. It aims to clarify the empirical and theoretical relationships between cultural heritage, conflict and identities. In particular, it examines how destruction and reconstruction affect notions of group membership and identity at different scales, from the individual to the pan-national level.

CRIC is a project funded by the European Union under the FP7 Framework Programme for Research Collaboration and is coordinated from the University of Cambridge in the UK.
