Abstract

The increasing importance of encouraging a widespread understanding of heritage has received a great deal of attention in the world context in recent years. In last decades hundreds of sites have become “world heritage” as they have been selected with certain criteria and valued by UNSECO. However, the selection procedures of those sites have not included what the meaning and value of heritage sites for people who live nearby. This paper argues that every single individual and community have a range of different socio-political, ethnic and economic backgrounds that shape their heritage perceptions that plays a significant role during valuing past materials and heritage sites. People develop different sense of relationship between themselves and heritage sites over a time. Therefore, it is significant to pay attention to the diverse voices of locals during the process of valuing heritage sites. This paper will specifically discuss the meaning of the heritage for locals regarding Çatalhöyük and Hattuşa, which are inscribed World Heritage Sites, and Ani that has been on the tentative list of UNSECO.

Resumen (otros idiomas)

La creciente importancia de extender la comprensión del patrimonio ha recibido mucha atención en los últimos años. En las últimas décadas se han declarado centenares de sitios como “Patrimonio Mundial” , seleccionados a partir de unos criterios que valora la UNESCO. De todos modos, esta selección no incluye los valores y significados del patrimonio para la gente que vive en su entorno. Este trabajo argumenta que cada persona y comunidad tiene un origen diferente y éste conforma su percepción del patrimonio y el valor que se le otorga. Las personas desarrollan diferentes relaciones con el patrimonio a lo largo del tiempo. Por ello, es importante prestar atención a las diferentes voces locales durante el proceso de valoración de sitios patrimoniales. En este tratabajo se discutirá específicamente el significado del patrimonio para agentes locales en el entorno de Çatalhöyük y Hattuşa, inscritas en la lista de Patrimonio Mundial de la UNESCO, así como Ani, en la lista tentativa.
