Les formes d'engagement dans l'activité patrimoniale : De quelques manières de s'accommoder au passé

Abstract : The mobilization for heritage has been continually growing for the past thirty years. The text gives some clues for understanding this expansion. It is commonly thought that it is due to an excessive taste for heritage as well as an overexpansion of memory. Heritage is what may be called a « champ préoccupé » in the context of the scientific administration of the Nation State. Apart from scientific work which has to be critical and objective, a more pragmatic approach will uncover the variety of commitments in and of heritage and point to the social links they create. And, if we go further, we can perceive a multiplicity of ways of considering time and space leading to more sensitive approaches. My hypothesis is that the modern “regime” of historicity, which has become the guideline of national heritage management, doesn't account for the plurality of more sensitive ways of experiencing time that people have in contemporary social structures.
