Heritage and the Afterlife of Songs

(p.138) Conclusion
Sounding Out Heritage

Lauren Meeker

University of Hawai'i Press

This concluding chapter summarizes key themes. One of the core concerns of this book is how discourses on quan họ folk song have been constructed and deployed over time by various national and local actors. Struggles to gain representational control over quan họ since the Revolution are firmly situated in the historical conditions of the time, the politics of local and national culture, and the dramatic transformations of society and social life since the Revolution. Another theme that runs throughout the book is the impact that the focus on intangible cultural heritage has had on quan họ in the past decade. The chapter also discusses the impact of the September 2009 inscription of quan họ to the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity on Bắc Ninh and Diềm Village and quan họ practice.
