A new issue of the International Journal of Heritage Studies is dedicated to Anticipating Loss: Rethinking Endangerment in Heritage Futures (all accessible in open access).

In addition to Sarah May, the authors include Caitlin DeSilvey, Rodney Harrison, Trinidad Rico, Nadia Bartolini, Esther Breithoff, Jennie Morgan, Sharon Macdonald, and Þóra Pétursdóttir.

In 2017, Linnaeus University in Kalmar, Sweden, was awarded a UNESCO Chair on Heritage Futures. This is one of eight Chairs in Sweden, and the only one within the cultural sector. Cornelius Holtorf, holder of the UNESCO Chair, alongside his team, will continue to generate ideas through this forum.
