Worlds of Cultural Heritage(s): History and Politics (Coimbra, Portugal: 7-8 February 2019)

Deadline: 31 Jul 2018

Worlds of Cultural Heritage(s) aims to contribute to the ongoing international debates about the history and politics of cultural heritage. Addressing the most vital conceptual and methodological critical assessments of the ways in which Cultural Heritage Studies can evolve as a discipline and dialogue with others, the conference aspires to provide a global empirical engagement with the history of its languages and programs, but also with its place in international agendas. Guideline topics:

* The history of heritage politics and policies: national and international
* Pre-colonial/colonial/post-colonial heritage(s)
* The globalization of heritage: past, present, future
* Critical Heritage Studies: challenges and opportunities
* Heritage, sustainability and development
* Heritage cultures: genealogies, dynamics, influences
* Heritage and tourism
* The language of heritage: taxonomies and methodologies

Abstract (c.500 words) must include a clear demonstration of the relation between the proposal and the CFP. Confirmation of paper acceptance: 30 September. Submission of full draft papers (10-12 pages) is expected by 31 December 2018 for circulation in advance of the conference.

Registration opens 1 October 2018. Early-bird rate: €60 to all participants except students and professors of Patrimónios (ends 15 January). Full rate: €90 to all participants. Includes lunch and conference dinner for those who present communications.

Organised by the PHD PROGRAMME HERITAGES OF PORTUGUESE INFLUENCE. Offered by the University of Coimbra since 2010, Heritages of Portuguese Influence is an international doctoral programme since 2012. With an interdisciplinary nature and scope, it studies the cultural heritages of the communities and territories that were influenced by the Portuguese diasporas, focusing on landscape and language, the cornerstones of living heritages. Mobilizing approaches coming from Architecture, Urbanism, Cultural Studies, Arts and History, it provides a multidisciplinary and multifaceted assessment of heritage as a cultural as well as a political argument and practice, placing its history and its potential as a tool for sustainable development at the forefront of all enquiries.
