附註 In this innovative book, Duane Jethro creates a framework for understanding the role of the senses in processes of heritage making. He shows how the senses were important for crafting and successfully deploying new, nation-building heritage projects in South Africa during the post-apartheid period. The book highlights how heritage dynamics are entangled in evocative, changing sensory worlds. Heritage Formation and the Senses in Post-Apartheid South Africa features five case studies that correlate with the five main Western senses. Examples include touch and the ruination of a series of art memorials; how vision was mobilised to assert the authority of the state sponsored Freedom Park project in Pretoria; how smell memories of apartheid era social life in Cape Town informed contemporary struggles for belonging after forced removal; how taste informed debates about the attempted rebranding of Heritage Day as barbecue day; and how the sound of the vuvuzela, popularised during the FIFA 2010 Football World Cup, helped legitimise its unofficial African and South African heritage status. This book makes a valuable contribution to the field of sensory studies and, with its focus on aesthetics and material culture, is in synch with the broader material turn in the humanities. This is important reading for students and scholars of anthropology, sociology, sensory studies, and transnational studies
