What does the “heritage” represent for populations not affected by the norms and stereotypes that this concept conveys, very largely inspired by the West? Institut Français Indonesia in Jakarta invites culture enthusiasts to the evening lecture of Masters of Speech: Journey around East Timor’s Local Heritage. Notable speaker at the lecture is Dominique Guillaud, a cultural geographer, senior researcher at the French Institute of research unit on “local heritage and governance” (Patrimoines locaux, PALOC). Dominique has been working on territoriality of local populations and on its representations, and on the uses and modes of conversation of biodiversity. She is now based at the National Museum of Natural History, Paris, France. Visit www.ifi-id.com/id/jakarta for more information.
