Drawing on postcolonial experiences in Ireland, this paper explores the shifting representations of built heritage over the post-independence era and the extent that a residual colonial legacy can perform a role in framing contemporary place-making processes. Empirically, we focus on representations emerging within contemporary 'elite discourses' - built heritage policy-makers, leading conservation practitioners and civil society conservation groups - to explore how they negotiate this postcolonial context.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Liverpool University Press||Copyright (published version):||2015 Liverpool University Press||Keywords:||Built heritage;Postcolonial;Conservation;Discourse;Ireland||DOI:||10.3828/tpr.2015.13||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
