We invite contributions for a collection of articles exploring the intersections of heritage, space and well-being. The planned volume seeks to investigate how traces of history impact on space and the ways in which the ensuing interrelations facilitate or curtail well-being. Thus, for instance, ‘traces’ of history affect the extent to which different (ethic, gendered, classed, etc.) bodies can extend into space (Ahmed 2006), and this has significant influence on their well-being.
The high pace of technology, particularly after the long wave of industrialization and artificial intelligence, has altered the way we see the universe. The human contribution to almost every field became passé, and now it is more about the synergy between the human and the technology.
