    The HERIDI project (EU Heritage Diplomacy and the Dynamics of Inter-Heritage Dialogue) opens new horizons in the research of new diplomacy by investigating a gap in current research: the uses of heritage in EU foreign policy and international cultural relations. The project explores these uses as EU heritage diplomacy. HERIDI scrutinizes EU heritage diplomacy simultaneously as it is being developed and implemented by various actors in EU member states and external countries. This data set focuses on the project's Work Package 2 (concept analysis of policy documentation). The data set includes documents authored by EU institutions: the European External Action Service, the European Commission, the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union, the European Economic and Social Committee, and the European Committee of Regions. The documents were found from the European Union's database EUR-Lex and ordered into thematic files based on their author and/or search terms: “cultur*”, “heritage”, “diplomat*”, “diplomacy”, "intercultural dialogue", "cultural institute", and "EUNIC". The data collection was conducted between 27 October and 16 November 2020. The data include 224 documents.

    This book is a handbook for everyone who is interested in museums and the wider cultural and cultural heritage debates. In the spirit of lifelong learning, it aims to connect the humanistic discipline of museum studies with the wider context of society. Museums possess power as safekeepers of our memories. This book will, in its own small way, take part in the discussion of making our past and future memories matter, to show how important it is for us to understand our past. In our contemporary culture it often seems that no time is allowed for this kind of understanding; the constant flow of issues and “must dos” often hinders us from seeing the connections between our past and present. In this turmoil, things in the past can too easily be regarded as non-urgent and less important. We, the editors, wish to shed light on why museums matter; we believe that it is important to launch a book that is directed both to readers within the arts and cultural heritage sector and readers outside of it. It is clear that readers within the sector tend to agree with one another on the major cultural issues. For these readers, our book offers up-to-date knowledge on the latest developments that have taken place in Finland. It is as important to make these issues visible to readers who situate themselves outside the sector and to connect these issues with the wider context of society. The knowhow of cultural heritage disciplines will aid in understanding the changes we are facing in the 21st century and help give them perspective. Museum Studies – Bridging Theory and Practice is an edited collection of 27 chapters by leading scholars and practitioners, most of whom work in Finland. The book will, for the first time, give a concise presentation of current research and practice in Finnish museum studies to a wider international audience, as well as to students and museum professionals in the field in Finland. The book combines current theoretical and practical approaches to museum studies, thus making it the first English-language handbook of Finnish museology.

    The “historic turn” in management and organizational studies (MOS) called organizational theorists and historians to engage in discussions on how to best combine organizational theorizing and historical reasoning, methods, and evidence. Arguably, the collective effort of the emergent academic movement has recently resulted in interdisciplinary integration, which foregrounds a new methodological paradigm within MOS. However, history remains a marginal epistemic lens and mode of inquiry in the various research fields of MOS. An example of this trend is the field of corporate social responsibility (CSR), which focuses on the responsibilities of business to pursue its goals in a socially and environmentally acceptable manner. Despite the recognized importance of the past in shaping the present relationships between business and society, CSR scholars have largely sidestepped serious engagement with history. Motivated by this observation, this dissertation explores the CSR field to advance the interdisciplinary project. The dissertation comprises four individual articles, which engage in methodological, conceptual, and practical boundary-spanning work. First, Article I contributes through methodological boundary-spanning work to the overarching objectives of the interdisciplinary project. In particular, the article develops a historical research strategy in the context of CSR research. Starting from the epistemological challenge that historical research interprets the past from the present, the article recognizes the problems of theorizing from history (i.e., presentism). Instead of trying to avoid any presentism that precludes organizational theorizing from history, the article draws from historical hermeneutics and recent insights into abductive reasoning to reconsider the epistemological implications for theory-history relations. As a result, the article outlines the philosophical foundations necessary to embrace history as a reflexive space for interacting with organizational theory (i.e., history-as-elaborating). Second, Article II engages in conceptual boundary-spanning work by integrating history and CSR scholarship conceptually. While previous literature specified the challenge of overcoming discrepant disciplinary traditions, this article argues that another source of mutual misunderstanding arises at the field level where the progress of knowledge occurs. To facilitate a research agenda useful for an interdisciplinary community, the article exemplifies the recognition and reconciliation of conceptual assumptions and research traditions at both the disciplinary and field level. Third, Articles III and IV contribute to the practical objectives of the interdisciplinary project, that is, conducting archival-based historical research that aims to contribute to organizational theorizing. Empirically, both articles explore CSR topics at the intersection of business and society in the Swiss context (i.e., immigration, political turmoil). Methodologically, these two articles apply empirical-analytical approaches. Due to the lack of practical knowledge, the introduction of the dissertation includes a section in which I unpack the micro-processes of historical source analysis in the context of a theory-elaboration strategy. Together, these findings advance the collective goals of academic movement beyond the CSR context. In addition to elaborating on these insights, the critical commentary (i.e., introduction) surveys and assesses the accomplishments and the state of the art of the interdisciplinary project. It concludes by discussing potential pitfalls that could hamper the further prosperity of history within MOS.

    The Chinese artist Zhan Wang has been widely noted for his conceptual sculptural works. Through simulating rocks and rock-formation processes by using modern technology and materials, he interrogates the dichotomies between humanity and nature, humanity and technology, modernity and tradition, and development and preservation. In this conversation, Zhan reviewed the conception and making of his works that particularly dealing with rocks. He also explained his views on a series of issues such as ecological awareness, the environmental crisis, the social engagement of art and the blurring of boundaries between art and other fields.

    The Chinese artist Liang Shaoji has been working intensively with silkworms for almost 30 years. His abundant art practices under the Nature Series have become a unique phenomenon in Chinese contemporary art. Liang was awarded the Chinese Contemporary Art Award (CCAA) in 2002 and the Prince Claus Award in 2009. In this conversation, he discusses how he has transformed the life process of the silkworm into an artistic language to explore the relationship between human beings and non-human life. He also articulated the association between the Nature Series and philosophy, history and culture, highlighting the integrity of ecology and culture, an idea which has traditionally been highly valued in Chinese culture and art.

    The European Heritage Label (EHL) is the EU’s flagship heritage action. It focuses on promoting the European significance of the cultural heritage and a sense of belonging among the European citizenry. The nature of the action and its proclaimed aims in identity politics necessitate wide public engagement, openness, and transparency. Compared to the European Capital of Culture (ECOC) action and the UNESCO Heritage Lists, the EHL application process has poor transparency, as the applications of the labeled sites are not made public or accessible to other heritage professionals, managers, policymakers, researchers, or public audiences. To increase the transparency of the EU heritage policy in the EHL action and to enhance the benefits this action has for various actors, we recommend changing its policy by making successful applications fully or partly public.

    Efficient communication is important for the sustainability of cultural heritage schemes. Being a rather new action, the European Heritage Label (EHL) struggles with issues of visibility and wider recognition among European citizens, in part resulting from modest communication of the diverse actors within the action. To both increase the visibility of the EHL and promote efficient audience engagement, with an emphasis on multilingual representation of Europe’s diverse cultural heritage, we recommend concrete measures to improve coordinated communication among the EHL actors. Our recommendations consist of three thematic areas: communication, multilingualism, and networking.
