Second announcement ACHS 2016

News: Jul 01, 2015

Heritage is, in fact, a powerful witness to mindsets and zeitgeist; it is commonly understood that it gives way to a better understanding of societies and even brings together communities. But how would this happen? Can heritage affect reality? What does it change? It is hoped that this general question will encourage submissions relating to one of the over-arching themes found id the pdf of the announcements; other proposals are nonetheless welcome.

Submissions to the 2016 ACHS Conference should bring innovative reflections and interdisciplinary methodologies or approaches to the critical enquiries about how and why heritage is, has been or could be made, used, studied, defined and managed, and with what effects, if any, on a society, a territory, an economy. Contributions might, for example, explore the reconstruction of narratives, the reconfiguration of social relations, knowledge production and cultural expressions, the transformation of the environment or the (de)valuation of the land. We particularly welcome papers that go beyond canon theories to interrogate discipline- based norms about heritage, and the assumptions that orient practice or decision-making. In this respect, this conference aims to continue important debates about heritage as a domain of politics and citizenship, a living environment, a source of identity and an assemblage of human-non-human relations.

Read more about the ACHS conference 2016 in the attached pdf and on the conference website (http://www.achs2016.uqam.ca). Information in English, Spanish, German and French.

The deadline for the call for session is 1st July 2015. Submissions can be made in English or French. The official opening of this general call for papers is scheduled for May 1st 2015. The deadline for the call for papers will be 1st November 2015.

In order to enrich scientific discussions, to promote the discovery of Montreal’s urban and cultural environment and its particular challenges in the field of heritage, and to support new partnership in research and training, the four days of the conference include numerous activities of inquiry and dialog in various areas linked to critical heritage studies, as architecture, urban planning, gastronomy, music, cinema, etc. Well-known guest speakers will also be heard, including James Count Early (Director, Cultural Heritage Policy, Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage), Xavier Greffe (University Professor in Economic Sciences, Paris 1 University Panthéon Sorbonne), and Michael Herzfeld (Ernest E. Monrad Professor of the Social Sciences, Harvard University).
All these and more will be announced soon.
