For the past 10 years, I have been researching issues of the politics of cultural heritage, commemoration, cultural tourism and religious practices. I am the author of Heritage and Romantic Consumption in China (Amsterdam University Press) and the co-editor of Politics of Scale (Berghahn Books). I am currently writing a book Heritage Politics in China: The Power of the Past, contracted to Routledge. This project analyzes the ways in which the remote past has been used as a cultural tool to facilitate China’s nation-building and local governance.
