Abstract: My presentation is based on my recent Cambridge Element in Critical Heritage
Studies entitled Heritage and Design: Ten Portraits from Goa (2022). This Element looks at the relationship between heritage and design by way of a case study approach. It offers up ten distinct portraits of a range of heritage makers located in Goa, a place that has been predicated on its difference, both historical and cultural, from the rest of India (Gupta 2009). I attempt to read the heritage of Goa–a former Portuguese colonial enclave (1510-1961) surrounded by what was formerly British India (1776-1947) as a form of placeness, a source of inspiration for further design work that taps into Goa of the 21st century. My series of portraits is visual, literary, and sensorial, and takes the reader on a heritage tour through a design landscape of villages, markets, photography festivals, tailors and clothing, books, architecture, painting and decorative museums. I do so in order to explore heritage futures as increasingly dependent on innovation, design, and the role of the individual but also always as a member of a heritage community.
