In Law and Intangible Cultural Heritage in the City, Sara Gwendolyn Ross, a Killam Postdoctoral Laureate and Social Science and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) Postdoctoral Fellow at the Peter A. Allard School of Law, illuminates urban spaces with intangible cultural value that is often overlooked and unprotected. The spaces to which Ross refers “are found on street corners, in neighbourhood haunts, in parks, in faded basement pubs, up creaky sets of stairs in live-work lofts overlooking the street, behind the doors of a repurposed factory space, in crisp and bright coffeeshops, loud music halls, pulsing nightclubs, shiny supper clubs.” She argues that these sites and their associated activities merit more attention, as “they are often the planes within which inequality in the city…plays out for most urban inhabitants.”
