The project Borders of Heritage aims to analyze the boundaries of the tangible and intangible concept of heritage, the circulation of knowledge and the debates generated by the displaced objects and works of art in various contexts (Europe, North Africa, Americas …), in a transnational and transcultural perspective. Two approaches are favored: An historian approach which analyzes the conflict situations in relation to the heritage issue, and a very contemporary approach which sees global reconfiguration of Museums (Paris, London, Berlin, Algiers, Montreal …) and a reorganization of their heritage collections, objects movement from one place to another, including inside national boundaries.
