The Concept(s) of Heritage The Thirteenth International Conference of Young Researchers in Heritage

The Thirteenth International Conference of Young Researchers in Heritage - The concept(s) of heritage
13-15 December 2019.
Canberra, Australia.
The thirteenth installment of the International Conference of Young Researchers in Heritage will be held at the Australian National University at Canberra, under the scientific direction of Dr Jessica Mace and Dr Yujie Zhu. The conference wishes to examine the concept(s) of heritage, its various meanings, interpretations and uses across the globe. It primarily seeks to examine the ontologies of heritage, i.e. how the concept of heritage has changed over time, how is it changing presently, and what this might bring for the future.Young researchers across all disciplines and nations are invited to submit proposals for 20–minute papers based on any aspect of the concept of heritage, from comparative case studies to theoretical analyses, that will instigate further discussions and reflections. Proposals should be no more than 500 words, accompanied by a title and a short biography, and must be sent to by January 1, 2019. Proposals can be in either English or French, but it is recommended that papers be presented in English. All proposals will be evaluated by a scientific committee and judged in relation to their originality and to the conference theme. Travel expenses may be partially subsidized, subject to budgetary restrictions. As with the previous twelve conferences, it is possible that the best papers presented at the conference may be scientifically evaluated and published in an edited volume.
