2. Lowthorp, Leah. "The State and the (Re)production of Intangible Cultural Heritage: Kutiyattam, UNESCO, and National/Global Heritage in India" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Association for Asian Studies - Annual Conference, Washington State Convention Center, Seattle, WA, <Not Available>. 2019-05-27 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1071161_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: This paper examines Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) discourse and practice in India through the lens of its first (2001) UNESCO ICH program, Kutiyattam theatre of Kerala. The paper situates both processes within a larger history of postcolonial nation building-cum-heritage creation by the Indian state, as embodied by the policy and initiatives of the Sangeet Natak Akademi, India’s national academy for dance, drama, and music. It argues for a continuity, rather than rupture, that Indian ICH discourse and practice have sustained both pre- and post- UNESCO ICH intervention. Taking the case of Kutiyattam, it explores the (re)production of the State’s role as both arts patron and cultural educator, as well as a sustained state-level promotion of artistic continuity through creative adaptation and change. As UNESCO ICH recognition leaves project implementation largely if not solely up to individual nation states themselves, the paper argues that in the case of Kutiyattam, the Indian state employed the heritage toolbox it already had at its disposal by integrating the art form further into its already existing heritage framework.

Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: This paper describes the process of folk cultural heritage protection in China. In formulating protective measures, agencies of different levels are at work such as folk culture experts, local government, the state, and international organization, etc. are expressed. As folk culture merged into intangible cultural heritage that conforms to international standards, it is used to demonstrate the diversity and richness of the Chinese culture. However, the critical awareness that is emphasized at the outset of protection activities gradually disappears and is absorbed into the discourse of the Great Chinese Culture. The question of what constitutes “true Chinese culture” is posed and creates controversy due to the mutability inherent in the concept of intangible cultural heritage. While the concept of ICH provides an important resource for the Chinese government as a national strategy, it is continuously slipping away because of its nature. The analysis in this paper shows the diversity and rifts in recent Chinese cultural nationalism in relation to the revival movements of traditional culture. While previous studies have emphasized how cultural heritage is made and contested by the nation or state or UNESCO, this paper maintains that the mutability of ICH makes any project of nation or state not very successful and, therefore, we should see not only how ICH is constructed by the state but also how ICH constructs the nationness.
