Abstract

[Since the deep mutation of capitalism that emerged in the 1970s, previous social capitalism became a nostalgic memory. At the same time the concept of heritage expanded in the economic sphere not only as goods to manage but as having immaterial value as well. Nowadays, heritage is claimed in the triviality of everyday life and in the name of the memory of former social local linkages that people can mobilise. In that sense, neighbourhood can be understood as a weak form of heritage when considered as places to preserve from the market. The residents of part of Villeneuve d’Ascq, a so-called new town in North of France built during the 1970s as a utopian comnunity, are the subject of this study on the use of heritage as a way to preserve the memories of their neighbourhood and the founding ideals of the town to preserve their welfare.]
