Algerian Heritage Associations: National Identity and Rediscovering the Past

Algerian Heritage Associations: National Identity and Rediscovering the Past

(p.101) Algerian Heritage Associations: National Identity and Rediscovering the Past

Jessica Ayesha Northey

Liverpool University Press

This chapter explores the work of Algerian heritage associations. It focuses on a number of associations seeking to challenge, to redefine or to promote new conceptions of Algerian history and identity. From associations promoting Berber cultural identity, to those in Oran seeking to re-explore the colonial past of the city, it looks at the confrontations and negotiations which take place between associations, the state and external actors. It asks how Algerian perceptions of the past, as seen by associative actors, influence current debates about which Algerian culture and heritage is important to protect and promote. With increasing external funding to the heritage sector from actors such as the EU it explores how external or transnational perspectives are integrated into this process.

Keywords:   Cultural Associations, Algerian identity, European Union, Algerian heritage, Bel Horizon
