Dr. Manal Ginzarly

Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Manal Ginzarly earned her M.S. in Urban Design from the American University of Beirut in 2014 and her PhD in Engineering Sciences and Technology from the University of Liège, Belgium in 2019. Her inquiry is multidisciplinary. It combines urban governance, sustainable development, heritage management, and tourism management. In her research, she focuses on people’s construct and definition of heritage and on the co-production of heritage knowledge. She develops novel methods that integrate traditional and innovative tools to grasp the range of cultural values attributed by the different stakeholders — including locals, tourists, and decision-makers — to the historic urban landscape. She works on methodological approaches dealing with social media to foster civic engagement in heritage management and to provide additional knowledge on the diversity of heritage places and attributes.
