|Contributors||Tennant, M., Mulhearn, R., Forsdick, C. and Godfrey, B.|
This briefing paper provides guidance to the heritage industry on the ethical interpretation of penal heritage. It has a primary focus on the UK because of the recent closure and sale of a number of former prison sites.
The paper explores a number of issues in relation to penal heritage interpretation and closes with a case study outlining work done in relation to the former Canterbury prison site purchased by Canterbury Christ Church University in 2014.
The briefing paper was produced as part of the 'Dark Tourism in Comparative Perspective: Sites of Suffering, Sites of Memory' project funded by AHRC and LABEX.
