Heritage attachment
in the urban terrain

Heritage attachment in the urban terrain. Everyday encounters with places of the past (Hauntɘd) is a three-year research project (2022-2024) funded by the Icelandic Research Fund and hosted at the Faculty of Sociology, Anthropology and Folkloristics at the University of Iceland. The overall aim is to contribute to an understanding of how people ascribe meaning and give value to historic urban landscape and to analyse the kind of emotions and types of affective qualities that emerge through sensory engagement with places of the past.
