The lecture is concerned with the changing notions and perceptions of heritage, through diasporic imagination and in the era of mass migration. The talk will address the following questions: What are the new notions of heritage in the era of mass migration? And how can the diasporic imagination be used in museum narratives to help refugees in overcoming the trauma of forced migration? By looking at the ways in which the idea of heritage changes and is expressed through art , the talk will highlight the need for a cultural and civic recognition (in museums and heritage institutions) of the new emerging heritage notions as well as the importance of diasporic imagination in re-asserting and redefining migrants history, memory and traditions in the hosting context.
