Thesis Topic/Title:
Cultural Heritage Research: Heritage and Wellbeing


The importance of heritage sites and practices has long been linked to cultural identity and is a common rationale for conserving heritage. Underpinning this rationale are claims of a connection between the conservation of heritage and community wellbeing. There is a growing interest in exploring these connections more methodically to understand the links between heritage, identity and wellbeing. This includes identity work with marginalized communities, including Australian Indigenous communities, people who are institutionalized including the elderly, mentally ill and frail, and those who have suffered life trauma, including returning military personnel. In this growing area of research there is scope for a number of research projects.
