The field of cultural heritage is no longer solely dependent on the expertise of art and architectural historians, archaeologists, conservators, curators, and site and museum administrators. It has dramatically expanded across disciplinary boundaries and social contexts, with even the basic definition of what constitutes cultural heritage being widened far beyond the traditional categories of architecture, artifacts, archives, and art. Heritage now includes vernacular architecture, intangible cultural practices, knowledge, and language, performances and rituals, as well as cultural landscapes. Heritage has also become increasingly entangled with the broader social, political, and economic contexts in which heritage is created, managed, transmitted, protected, or even destroyed. Heritage protection now encompasses a growing set of methodological approaches whose objectives are not necessarily focused upon the maintenance of material fabric, which has traditionally been cultural heritage's primary concern. The Oxford Handbook of Public Heritage Theory and Practice charts some of the major sites of convergence between the humanities and the social sciences, where new disciplinary perspectives are being brought to bear on heritage. These convergences have the potential to provide the interdisciplinary expertise needed not only to critique but also to achieve the intertwined intellectual, political, and socioeconomic goals of cultural heritage in the twenty-first century. This volume highlights the potential contributions of development studies, political science, anthropology, management studies, human geography, ecology, psychology, sociology, cognitive studies, and education to heritage studies.

Στις αρχές της δεκαετίας του ’50, σε μια μικρή πόλη της Ιρλανδίας, η Έιλις, ένα κορίτσι από φτωχή οικογένεια, όπως και οι περισσότεροι νέοι δυσκολεύεται να βρει δουλειά. Μόλις της προταθεί μια θέση στις ΗΠΑ καταλαβαίνει ότι δεν μπορεί να αρνηθεί, και αποφασίζει για πρώτη φορά να αφήσει πίσω την εύθραυστη μητέρα της και την αδερφή της.Η απόφασή της θα την οδηγήσει στο Μπρούκλιν όπου υπομονετικά θα χτίσει μια καινούργια ζωή γεμάτη όνειρα για το μέλλον της. Κι ενώ προσπαθεί να διαχειριστεί τη νοσταλγία που νιώθει για ό,τι άφησε πίσω της, θα γνωρίσει τον πρώτο της έρωτα και μαζί την υπόσχεση για μια καλύτερη ζωή. Το παρελθόν της όμως σύντομα θα την καλέσει ξανά, αναγκάζοντάς την να διαλέξει ανάμεσα στην πατρίδα, στην οικογένεια και στον έρωτα. Με εγκράτεια, δεξιοτεχνία και εξαιρετική συναισθηματική αντίληψη ο Colm Tóibín, ένας από τους καλύτερους Ιρλανδούς συγγραφείς της εποχής μας, συνέθεσε μια συγκλονιστική ιστορία για το πεπρωμένο. Το Μπρούκλιν τιμήθηκε με το Βραβείο Costa 2009, και ήταν υποψήφιο για το Διεθνές Λογοτεχνικό Βραβείο IMPAC Dublin 2011 και το βραβείο κοινού Goodreads 2009. Είχε επίσης συμπεριληφθεί στη μακρά λίστα για το βραβείο Man Booker το 2009.

Under the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991, historic preservation and highway communities have opportunities, such as the funding for Transportation Enhancement Activities, to reaffirm existing partnerships and establish new ones. The National Trust for Historic Preservation and the Federal Highway Administration prepared this booklet to describe some of the Transportation Enhancement projects. These projects demonstrate that historic preservation is not only rewarding on its own terms; investment in historic preservation can also help revitalize a neighborhood, rebuild a community, and stimulate economic growth.
