Issue 1: Cultural Heritage in an International Age

furnace, is a newly forged Postgraduate within the Ironbridge International Institute for Cultural Heritage (IIICH), University of Birmingham. Cultural heritage is an ever expanding and diversifying discipline; we hope to be a facilitator for sparking debates and discussions surrounding the field.

The theme for the first edition of the journal is: ‘cultural heritage in an international age’. What significant roles can heritage play in a globalising and modernising world? Has the scope and scale of the discipline responded to the demands of today’s international community? Is heritage in a dialogue with reality? These questions begin to deconstruct some of the present issues surrounding the theme and make fundamental enquiries about the future of cultural heritage.
