Similarities and Differences among Intangible Cultural Heritages:
Keywords:â€” intangible cultural heritage, UNESCO, multinational nomination, ICH
AbstractIntangible cultural heritages (ICH) have been present across borders throughout human history due to human migration, diffusion, or independent creation. Cultures, including ICH's have always been negotiated and contested within and between groups of people. Crossing borders has become even easier with recent surge of globalization. People flow, cultures flow, and resources and information are shared across borders. In this process, cultures are shared, mixed, and hybridized. Through this, cultural diversity increases within a society, while safeguarding ICH is necessary in order to maintain cultural diversity in the global community. Even with all the potential problems, recognizing and safeguarding multinational ICH's can be an effective way to avoid nationalistic conpetition among nation/states over ICH's.
