This is the second in a short series of podcasts on the UNESCO 2003 Convention on Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH). In this podcast, Karen Culver, an MA student in the Cultural Heritage Studies Programme, talks to Dr Chiara Botolotto, a Research Associate at the Interdisciplinary Institute of Contemporary Anthropologyin Paris; they discuss why some world regions are under-represented in the global list of ICH; role of the community in listing their ICH with UNESCO, and how this listing impacts the community.
In the other podcasts in the series Karen looks at how an item of Intangible Cultural Heritage is listed; some of the challenges faced by the 2003 UNESCO Convention; what is the relationship between UNESCO and the community that holds the heritage, and what a community might gain from listing their heritage with UNESCO.
