"Infrastructure of Heritage: Local (im)possibilities of the Past"
"Local" means not an illustration or a diminutive form of the "great" history and heritage, but also the opportunity and new impulses to review already created visions, prejudices about the past.
The Historian Sofia Dyak focuses on the opportunities and challenges
accompanying the rethinking of heritage from the perspective of the city and the place. She will tell how important in this
process are little processed, missing or disrupted storylines, since working with them can help to change the societies. And in general, how through the local one can see global, the other
conceptualization of the territory in the past, and through the rethinking of the past to see the potentials in the present.
