The inaugural conference of The Association of Critical Heritage Studies, on the theme of re-theorising heritage studies, took place in Gothenburg, Sweden in June 2012. It aimed to start interdisciplinary conversations that will serve to develop relevant theory across national borders and move away from the conventional understanding of heritage as objectively given places, objects and traditions. Instead heritage is to be regarded as something created in the interaction between different interests and power relations. This perspective was relatively consistent throughout the conference, where a wide range of topics were presented in more than 400 different papers. Concepts such as representation, “the other” and post-colonialism reflected the development of theory in this field over recent years, while considerations of relational ontology, body, affect and connection-seeking theorising were a signal of the development to come.
