This book is the result of a series of transnational and transdisciplinary conversations around one leading question: how people relate to tangible and intangible heritage to plan a more just and inclusive future in times of ecological transition and societal changes. Such a wide question has been explored by digging into theories and cases that can be interpreted as various forms of experimental and insurgent museologies: spontaneous initiatives, as well as innovative breaches into the institutional machines, showing alternatives to the mainstream. However, here the editors do not want to come out with a new definition. Rather, the book proposes an exploratory journey around di!erent emerging concepts and examples that seem to open some windows of opportunities in the broad and diverse international community. It o!ers some insights on how various expressions of museologies are changing with current socially and ecologically pressing issues. The idea of the title – Babel Tower – stresses the opportunity of exploring di!erent languages, areas, and jargon related to the field of museums, planning, and experimental devices (such as ecomuseums), their relations with communities, citizenship, territories, heritage, landscape, and the broad debate concerned with sustainability and socio-ecological justice.

Abstract

This book is the result of a series of transnational and transdisciplinary conversations around one leading question: how people relate to tangible and intangible heritage to plan a more just and inclusive future in times of ecological transition and societal changes. Such a wide question has been explored by digging into theories and cases that can be interpreted as various forms of experimental and insurgent museologies: spontaneous initiatives, as well as innovative breaches into the institutional machines, showing alternatives to the mainstream. However, here the editors do not want to come out with a new definition. Rather, the book proposes an exploratory journey around di!erent emerging concepts and examples that seem to open some windows of opportunities in the broad and diverse international community. It o!ers some insights on how various expressions of museologies are changing with current socially and ecologically pressing issues. The idea of the title – Babel Tower – stresses the opportunity of exploring di!erent languages, areas, and jargon related to the field of museums, planning, and experimental devices (such as ecomuseums), their relations with communities, citizenship, territories, heritage, landscape, and the broad debate concerned with sustainability and socio-ecological justice.
