Chapter 8: ICH and identity: the use of ICH among global multicultural citizens
This chapter explores how people with a multicultural identity, that is people with no particular place-based identities, not asserting ancestral connections to the land, and a lack of sense of belonging to a single culture, develop a distinctive way of using traditional forms of intangible cultural heritage, specifically cuisine in terms of food diversity, sense and taste experiences, and culinary savoir-faires. Through exploring how multicultural people give meaning and use local and fusion cuisine as an intangible heritage, the chapter discus how globalization, serial migration and multiculturalism are redefining the notions of originality and authority as traditional defined by the 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage.
