Deep Cities: Using a City’s Heritage and History to Create a Sustainable Future
Torgrim Sneve Guttormsen
Torgrim Sneve Guttormsen is a research professor and the head of the Heritage and Society Department at the Norwegian Institute for Cultural Heritage Research. He has edited books including Heritage and Sustainable Urban Transformations: Deep Cities (Routledge, 2020) and Heritage, Democracy and the Public: Nordic Approaches (Routledge, 2016). He most recently co-authored a September 2023 paper on “Assemblage Urbanism: The Role of Heritage in Urban Placemaking,” published in the Journal of Cultural Heritage Management and Sustainable Development.
In this free lecture, delivered virtually with the audience in person at the Memorial Union, Guttormsen will use the recently completed project “Curating Sustainable URBAn Transformations through HERITage (CURBATHERI – Deep Cities)” project as a lens to view how archaeology can be a theoretical resource for integrating cultural heritage values in urban planning.
