Title: The Importance of Cultural Heritage to Future Research in the Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences
Lead Author: Daniels, Brian I.
Abstract: "Cultural heritage," is a concept that has become increasingly central to the social sciences. While it has been employed in the service of identity politics, post-conflict reconciliation, historic preservation, community development, and tourism, scholars are only beginning to understand what its impact might be to our theories of society, the interpretation of the past, to positive policy decisions, and to the ethics of social scientific research. In this paper, we argue that cultural heritage merits rigorous investigation in four core areas of the National Science Foundations initiatives: 1) in the documentation of cultural practices among human societies past and present; 2) in the relationship between law and society; 3) in the relationship between economic development and society; and 4) in the creation of ethical protocols for scientific research. Following on these themes, we suggest a research program for the future of cultural heritage studies.
