The Santa Fe meetings provide an excellent locale for exploring the closely related themes of Heritage, Environment & Tourism. Heritage has become a major focal point for national, regional and local development initiatives. As heritage is seen to have both external and internal value, how can we participate in such areas as heritage development and resource management while still defending the rights of communities to control how their heritages are represented? In a similar manner, the environment is increasingly being viewed as a kind of “natural heritage,” implying a strong association between environmental conservation and human associations with the environment.
In keeping with the Society’s interdisciplinary roots, the Program Committee invites the participation of a wide variety of professionals, including anthropologists, archaeologists, geographers, sociologists, folklorists, public historians, tourism researchers and practitioners, natural scientists, museum professionals, and others. Symposia and individual papers are also invited and actively encouraged in all other areas of applied endeavor, such as health and medicine, agriculture and rural development, education, migration and resettlement, business and corporate issues, language, urban and regional development, community-based and participatory models for practice, applied research methods and planning approaches, and diversity and human rights initiatives.
The conference will be held at the LaFonda hotel in Santa Fe, New Mexico from April 5th to April 10th, 2005. For more information, visit the web address listed below.
