Course Overview Popular and scholarly interest in both the use(s) and meaning(s) of “cultural heritage” have increased dramatically in recent decades. Cultural heritage is a powerful political and economic tool, one that derives from individual or mixed aspects of culture, among which religion and non-religious belief systems are a significant and very meaningful segment. The roots of “cultural heritage” are not always disclosed, but there, too, we find belief systems at the core of preservation and continuation and innovation in the cultural sphere.

This seminar explores the theoretical and practical dimensions of “sacred heritage,” or cultural heritage of religious interest, in Japanese and global contexts. We will adopt an interdisciplinary approach, integrating perspectives from such disciplines as religion, history, cultural anthropology, and archaeology. Guiding themes of the course include (1) religion and cultural heritage in theory and application; (2) the diverse forms of national and international cultural heritage in Japan; (3) the identification, assessment, interpretation/representation, preservation, promotion, and contestation of sacred heritage; (4) nationalism/national identity and cultural politics; (5) museums and the politics of representation; (6) tourism and the marketing of sacred heritage.
