Applied Cultural Heritage: How telling the past at historic sites benefits society.
This conference looks at how historic sites and stories about the past are important in creating meaning for people today; which pasts can be told and whose stories should we tell in multi-cultural societies; if historic sites can promote social cohesion, human rights, peace and democracy; and which new ways are emerging in which cultural heritage benefits society today.
Scholars and professionals in all relevant disciplines and professions across anthropology, archaeology, heritage studies, history, human geography, pedagogy, sociology and tourism studies, among other fields are invited to submit.
