Emma Waterton is an Associate Professor in the School of Social Sciences and Psychology at Western Sydney University, and an Institute Fellow in the Institute for Culture and Society. Her research explores the interface between heritage, identity, memory and affect. Her most recent project, ‘Photos of the Past’, was a three-year examination of all four concepts at a range of Australian heritage sites, including Uluru Kata-Tjuta National Park, Sovereign Hill, Port Arthur and Kakadu National Park, and was funded by an ARC DECRA. She is author of the monograph Politics, Policy and the Discourses of Heritage in Britain (2010, Palgrave Macmillan), and co-author of Heritage, Communities and Archaeology (with Laurajane Smith; 2009, Duckworth) and The Semiotics of Heritage Tourism (with Steve Watson; 2014, Channel View Publications).
