This conference focuses on the role of citizens, local communities and civil society organizations in the process of heritage-making. It will dwell on the rights, privileges, and responsibilities of citizens in relation to the notion of heritage and the modern nation-state. Without losing sight of the larger contexts in which cities are organically embedded, this conference has a special – but not exclusive – interest in the role of cities and their inhabitants as well as concerned civil society organizations in heritage-making.
Scholars working on local communities and the making of heritage in cities, townships and their associated rural landscapes in East and Southeast Asia should consider sending in a proposal.
Paper proposals should include a title, name of author, institutional affiliation, email address, an abstract (300 words) and a brief personal biography (150 words). The proposal should be submitted in word document format by June 1 2014 to Ms. Kathleen Mariska Azali (email: email@example.com). Successful applicants will be notified by July 15 2014 and will be required to send in a completed draft paper (6000 - 8000 words) by November 15 2014.
Accommodations and a modest travel grant will be provided for all accepted participants.
