This research project investigates the how searching on Google’s various services is changing the way we experience World Heritage, and what it can tell us about people’s connection to these important places. This is the first phase of the research.

The survey is collecting keywords associated with two World Heritage sites: Casa Luis Barragan located in Mexico, and Villa Savoye located in France. It asks you to submit the words, phrases or names you associate with these World Heritage sites. You can do this in English and/or Spanish for Casa Luis Barragan or English and/or French for Villa Savoye. Your responses will be used to develop a series of keywords (a word or phrase) for the second and third parts of the research project.

The research explores how Google search data can measure values and associations in real time. This will benefit the development of policy and practice of conservation management of the properties themselves and their digital counterparts, by enabling individual longitudinal studies, regional comparisons and changing values for distinct communities at a global level.

The project has been funded through a University of Melbourne Early Career Grant.

Your responses will not be linked to your personal information and therefore participation presents minimal risk to you. The results will be communicated in scholarly articles and public engagement articles.
