Heritage Hierarchy in Bhaktapur’s Falcha

The upcoming discussion seminar will be anchored by Monika’s research of Bhaktapur’s falchas. Unlike falchas within the core city area, the ones on the outskirts are uncared for, abandoned and often unusable. What roles do falchas play as public and community spaces and as the commons? Which heritage “monuments” are prioritized over others, and why? What kinds of cities do we want to live in? How do we define and shape our neighborhoods, and as a result, our identities and our relationships with each other?
