WHOSE HERITAGE IS IT ANYWAY? RECONCILING THE 'NATIONAL' AND THE UNIVERSAL IN QUEBEC CITY

British Journal of Canadian Studies (2003), 16, (2), 333–347.

Abstract

Heritage is by definition an inheritance from the past destined for the future. It is a product of the present purposefully developed in response to current demands for it, and shaped by that market. It follows that the past is a quarry of possibilities from which selection occurs not only or even principally by chance survival but by deliberate choice (Ashworth 1994: 1).
