Purpose: This paper proposes a research agenda towards a holistic, grounded, and flexible approach to cultural heritage, that can address social challenges and transformations in the context of place. It critiques the dominant/hegemonic cultural heritage narratives, deriving from juridification, and calls for a grounded approach in the way cultural heritage is framed and experienced. Design/methodology/approach The paper is conceptual, focusing on the need to open a line of enquiry into the relationship between legal texts, cultural heritage narratives, and social challenges and transformations. It follows the letter of the international conventions on cultural heritage against the worked example of the Medieval Town of Rhodes in Greece. Findings The paper sets the relevant research priorities for the investigation of the effective relationship between cultural heritage and social challenges in the context of place, and further stretches the need to evaluate the role of legal and regulatory texts to that effect. Originality The paper identifies new priorities for thinking about the effects of juridification/the law, cultural heritage, and social challenges/transformations in a place-specific context. It seeks to open new avenues of scientific explorations and new interdisciplinary dialogues between a variety of disciplines that are relevant to the way a place engages and addresses social challenges and transformations.
