Abstract

This chapter focuses empirically on crop diversity conservation practices and the work of the Svalbard Global Seed Vault (SGSV). It examines how such a framework might suggest productive new lines of inquiry for critical heritage studies. The chapter explores the different future-making practices by looking in detail at the futures that are generated in the work of the SGSV and considering how these might diverge from other fields of heritage practices. The “future” has a long history as a concept in both the popular and scientific imaginary and is part of the same modern set of concepts that undergirds contemporary understandings of heritage. Approaches to heritage studies have drawn on assemblage and actor-network approaches to show the value of seeing heritage as a series of strategic socio-technical and/or bio-political assemblages composed of various people, institutions, apparatuses and the relations between them.
