CfP: Global Challenges in Cultural Heritage


1–3 September 2017

A conference organised in partnership by: The Palace Museum Beijing /University of Stirling/Historic Environment Scotland

Cultural heritage faces an array of challenges, many of which are replicated across the world. Whilst local circumstances vary, there are opportunities to share experiences and collaborate in finding solutions. As part of the Scottish Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology in 2017, Global Challenges in Cultural Heritage celebrates the newly formed partnership between the University of Stirling, The Palace Museum in Beijing and Historic Environment Scotland. The conference seeks to explore and share approaches to specific challenges in relation to a range of shared issues and to highlight Scotland’s place, and in particular Stirling, as an international centre for research and innovation in heritage and conservation.

Proposals are invited for panels, individual paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, or colloquia addressing one of the following themes:

  • Assessing Global Challenges.
  • Significance, Value and Meaning in Cultural Heritage.
  • Conservation of Historic Fabric.
  • Technology and Innovation in Heritage.
  • Conservation Challenges and Opportunities.
  • Visitor Management and Engagement. 

Proposals for other themes relating to Global Challenges in Cultural Heritage are also welcome

The deadline for submission of abstracts is 17 April 2017.
