It’s a book!

September 12, 2009

Slover Linett research fellow Michael Di Giovine recently published The Heritage-scape: UNESCO, World Heritage and Tourism.

DiGiovine, an anthropologist earning his PhD at the University of Chicago and currently living in Italy to complete his doctoral research, draws on ethnographic fieldwork, close policy analysis, and professional experiences in Southeast Asia and Europe to provide a detailed examination of UNESCO's extraordinary efforts to harness globalization and cultural diversity to foster peace.

The book has been admiringly reviewed by major figures in athropology and heritage circles. It's an eye-opener that will leave you seeing all kinds of heritage enterprises in a new light.

The Slover Linett team couldn't be prouder of Michael.
