This report relates to a key objective of WP4 in the CoHere Horizon2020 project to ‘investigate the role and culturalcurrency of serendipitous online heritage dialogues as manifested in social media platforms’. It presents the analysis of geotagged user-generated content aggregated from photo-sharing platforms to identify emerging approaches to heritage and identity building in reference to three European public squares. It discusses how notions of Europe and heritage are implicitly addressed in photo-sharing practices, and how official heritage discourses are both challenged and complemented by online, participatory accounts of place. The report analyses visual dialogues around the nexus place-heritage-identity, highlighting affective, curatorial and experiential approaches in negotiating past and present, online and offline representations of place and how they are intertwined in processes of identity-building.
