Heritage & Society - the successor journal to Heritage Management - is a global, peer-reviewed journal that provides a forum for scholarly, professional, and community reflection on the cultural, political, and economic impacts of heritage on contemporary society. We examine the current social roles of diasporic heritage, the role of heritage in migration and displacement, collective memory, historic preservation, cultural resource management, public interpretation, cultural preservation and revitalization, sites of conscience, heritage education, legal/legislative developments, cultural heritage ethics, and central heritage concepts such as authenticity, significance, and value.

The journal provides an engaging forum about tangible and intangible heritage for those who work with international and governmental organizations, academic institutions, private heritage consulting and CRM firms, and local, associated, and indigenous communities. With a special emphasis on social science approaches and an international perspective, the journal facilitates lively, critical discussion and dissemination of practical data among heritage professionals, planners, policymakers, and community leaders.

Heritage & Society includes peer-reviewed research on policy, legislation, ethics, and methods in heritage management and will showcase exemplary projects and models of public interpretation and interaction. A peer-reviewed Forum section presents position statements and responses on key current issues. The journal also includes reviews of books, web pages, exhibits, and resources in various media, regions, and languages.
