We are pleased to advertise the opportunity to contribute to Travelling Cultures: Tracing Intangible Migrant Heritage in the UK, a potential themed volume in the Proceedings of the British Academy series.

The aim of this book is to explore how migrant groups adapt and deploy Intangible Cultural Heritage as they settle in the UK while assessing the positive and negative implications of integration within this increasingly diverse context. Ultimately, we aim to clarify socio-cultural changes by looking at them through the lens of living heritage.

For this volume, we seek chapter proposals of original work showcasing interdisciplinary approaches and methodologies brought to bear on the issue on Intangible Cultural Heritage in contemporary Britain. Crucially and distinctively, research must be based on full engagement with activity underway within migrant communities.

We look forward to receiving your abstracts.
