Call for papers for the American Anthropological Association Meeting to be held in Montréal, Canada (16-20 November 2012). Themed TRACES, TIDEMARKS and LEGACIES the conference is hence an appropriate arena to invite a discourse amongst anthropologists about the cause and effects of UNESCO World Heritage status on research sites and subjects. The suggested AAA panel title is to be Patrimoine Mondial: living culture, sacred groves, and fragile stones in the light of UNESCO World Heritage status, inscriptions, and local patrimony. This volunteered AAA panel will be in lieu of a special issue of UNESCO’s International Social Science Journal aimed to be critical about patrimony.
The closing date for consideration will be April 10th. Please send a title and an abstract of no more than 250 words to Cressida Marcus(firstname.lastname@example.org). Kindly also circulate this call for papers amongst those colleagues who might wish to join in the panel and develop a critical perspective in dialogue. The Convener also encourages those interested to contact her for a fuller panel synopsis as a pointer towards the direction of enquiry and related issues; as well as a précis of her own case study material (Ethiopia), also available on request.
