Elena Bogdanova is a researcher and co-applicant in two research projects
Maintenance Matters. Exploring common contexts of Heritage (e)valuation funded by the Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet 2017-2021, Project leader Ingrid Martins Holmberg, Department of Conservation, GU).
The purpose of the project is to explore enduring values and meanings found within common contexts of ‘maintenance and repair’ (craftsmanship; built heritage designation; homeowners engagement) in an urban setting. These contexts are considered as core heritage phenomena that enable for ‘the past’ to endure and remain in our contemporary modern world. Elena is responsible for one of the working packages within this project:
Valuing the past: cultural heritage as socio-spatial co-construction
The purpose of this part of the project is to map the evaluative practices of different groups of stakeholders engaged in the maintenance of buildings-as-heritage, and trace how the value is created through “productive frictions” of different valuation principles in the process of maintenance and repair. Her other current research activity relates to storytelling as citizen participation technology in built heritage designation.
In 2019 Elena started to work in the project ”Deltagande i renovering: Mot ett ekologiskt, socialt och ekonomiskt hållbart miljonprogram?" funded by FORMAS.
The purpose of the project is to analyse residents' participation in the process of renovation of housing stock built within as a part of the so-called Million Dwellings Program in Sweden in 1960-1975. The project is implemented by the researchers at the Department of Sociology and Work Science (University of Gothenburg), and the Institute for Housing Studies in Uppsala.
