Just added a convenient new tag (in the sidebar) for “heritage”:

collating my observations on the troubling effects of the Intangible Cultural Heritage juggernaut on north Chinese ritual—also taking in Stella Gibbons, “Mediterranean diet”, the deep-fried Mars bar, and the Lake District…

Taxonomy eh—dontcha just love it.
