9781409448440: World Heritage in Iran: Perspectives on Pasargadae (Heritage, Culture and Identity)

Pasargadae is the location of the tomb of Cyrus the Great, founder of the Achaemenid Empire. Through the ages it was Islamised and the tomb was ascribed to the Mother of Solomon. It was only at the beginning of the twentieth century that archaeological evidence demonstrated the relationship between the site and Cyrus and it was appropriated into conflicting political discourses on nationalism and Islamism while concurrently acknowledged as a national and then a World Heritages site. However, Pasargadae is neither an isolated World Heritage site, nor purely a symbol of abstract state politics. Pasargadae and its immediate vicinity constitute a living landscape occupied by villagers, nomads and tourists. This edited volume presents for the first time a broad, multi-disciplinary examination of Pasargadae by experts from both outside and within Iran. It specifically focuses on those disciplines that are absent from existing studies, such as ethnography, tourism and museum studies providing valuable insights into this fascinating place. In its totality, the book argues that to understand World Heritage sites and their problems fully, a holistic approach should be adopted, which considers the manifold of perspectives and issues. It also puts forward a novel approach to the question of heritage, representation and construction of collective identity from the framework of place.

About the Author :

Ali Mozaffari (PhD) is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Australia-Asia-Pacific Institute (AAPI), Curtin University, Australia.

Review :

'World Heritage designation may hinder further transformations of locality, but Pasargadae resists one-dimensional interpretations nonetheless. Chapters in this volume acknowledge disciplinary co-creations of place, while creatively presenting a palimpsest of meanings through unique and timely debates. This is a fascinating example of a multidisciplinary approach to the construction of heritage value that resists predictable forms of analyses.'Trinidad Rico, UCL Qatar'This volume represents an important addition to the available literature on Pasargadae. Ali Mozaffari and his co-authors explore the numerous ways in which the 'afterlife' of one of Iran's most memorable sites still calls for detailed, ongoing investigation. The tension that exists between the needs of the monuments and the needs of modern local communities is but one of many topics that receives deserved notice.'David Stronach, Emeritus Professor, University of California, Berkeley, USA'The collection of articles brought together by Ali Mozaffari provides a thorough and multi-layered study of Pasargadae as a world heritage site. This book on the city of Cyrus the Great not only does justice to its proper historical and archaeological place in history, but is also a great contribution to our understanding of the relationship between the site, the environment and the people who live there.'Touraj Daryaee, University of California, Irvine, USA
