‘Unquiet Pasts’ is the new volume for ‘Risk Society, Lived Cultural Heritage, Re-designing Reflexivity’ edited by Stephanie Koerner and Ian Russel. It is a written challenge to the individual and the community’s thought upon the past and consequently upon the future, as it states: ‘diversity of the past for plurality of future conditions of possibilities’. Exploring the notion of social and cultural heritage – locally and globally, giving practical present examples, and evoking touching collective and personal memories, the volume raises awareness ‘that no process begins from scratch. To design is always to re-design, to experiment is always to revisit pasts that differ to the present and indeterminate futures. Re-designing and cautious experimentality may be an ‘antidote’ to (…) the search for absolute certainty, absolute beginnings, and radical departures’. Thank you Stephanie Koerner for inviting me to contribute to the volume!
