    Call for abstracts – ‘Embracing Change in the Management of Place’ Conference. 13-15 May 2015, Massachusetts (USA) Deadline: 15 January 2015 

    Cultural Landscapes and Heritage Values“Embracing Change in the Management of Place”

    13-15 May 2015 at the UMass Amherst Campus, Massachusetts (USA)


    Deadline for abstracts: 15 January 2015

    The Challenge

    In recognition of the importance of cultural landscape research in contemporary heritage policy and practice, the University of Massachusetts Center for Heritage & Society (CHS) and the Department of Landscape Architecture and Regional Planning (LARP) have co-organized a two-and-a-half day conference. The goal of the conference is to bring together a broad range of interdisciplinary scholars and heritage professionals to explore key issues in cultural landscapes and heritage values.

    Cultural landscapes may be urban or rural, and they include parks, gardens, historic sites, agricultural landscapes, and areas of cultural and historical associations and significance. In the broader field of Heritage Management, the study of cultural landscapes is of particular and current interest. Landscapes are at once “cultural” and “natural,” calling into question traditional divisions of cultural and natural heritage resources and landscape management (e.g., “Cultural Landscapes” vs. “Natural Landscapes” in the World Heritage categories). Landscapes constitute a living heritage, reflecting the mutual influences of diverse groups of people and the equally varied places they inhabit. Like societies, landscapes are continually evolving, and their management demands that social and environmental change be understood and embraced. Landscapes define the sense of a “place,” and are the embodiment of the inextricability o! f tangible and intangible heritage. For these reasons and others, landscapes are a critical subject in heritage studies.

    Conference Themes

    The themes of the conference emphasize the need to acknowledge and engage change in the successful interpretation, conservation, and management of landscapes; the often unproductive dichotomy of “natural” and “cultural” resources; the factors of social and economic inequality inherent in the designation and management of living landscapes; and other critical issues in heritage studies today that are raised and provoked by cultural landscape research and conservation.

    Themes to be explored in this conference include:

      • Multi-Cultural Landscapes: Issues of Social Justice and Power

    Landscapes express the diversity of the peoples who have lived and worked in them through time. The issue of which cultural landscapes, and which aspects of multi-layered cultural landscapes, are conserved and commemorated are embedded in contemporary power relationships. Heritage sites and landscapes can be tools for cultural reparations, social cohesion, for education as sites of conscience, and for places of commemoration of multi-ethnic and multi-cultural heritage. Abstracts should include case studies and research on indigenous cultural landscapes, diasporic heritage, ethnographic methodologies in cultural landscape research, legal frameworks and litigation, landscapes of disrupted heritage (involving conflict, ethnic cleansing, or other disruption), and other issues of social justice.

      • Authenticity and Integrity vs. Change in Living Landscapes

    Landscapes are the products and precedents of natural and cultural processes that began in the past and continue into the future. Understanding cultural landscapes as living landscapes has recast ideas of historical integrity and “authenticity.” If we acknowledge that change is inherent in living landscapes, then how do we safeguard something that by definition changes? And in the context of change, where does authenticity lie? Abstracts should address issues of integrity and authenticity in landscapes that continue to change and which reflect the changes in the lives of the people who inhabit them, including historic urban landscapes, agricultural landscapes, indigenous cultural landscapes, and other living landscapes.

      • Tangible and Intangible Heritage in Cultural Landscapes

    Cultural landscapes embody tangible as well as intangible heritage, and are a combined expression of both. Various forms of traditional knowledge shape landscapes and are therefore a vital topic in cultural landscape research and practice. Abstracts should address case studies and research in traditional landscape management practices; layers of meaning ascribed to landscapes that have been lost or are contested; proxemics patterns and their influence on power and social structure; ephemeral landscapes and landscapes of change; agricultural landscapes; indigenous landscapes; and other examples of intangible heritage in cultural landscapes.

      • Sustainability in Cultural Landscape Management

    Climate change, environmental degradation, and goals for an increasingly sustainable future affect cultural landscape research and practice in many ways. Abstracts should address heritage planning in relation to climate change, the integration of sustainable food systems in cultural landscape management, cultural landscapes as infrastructure, and sustainable technology in landscape conservation.

    Submission of Abstracts

    • To propose a symposium, paper, or poster for one of the four sub-themes listed above, please submit an abstract (maximum 200 words) HERE by January 15, 2015. This conference will be open to the public and will explore the theme of “Cultural Landscapes and Heritage Values” as described above. Papers selected will be the basis of twenty-minute presentations followed by discussion. No more than one abstract will be accepted per author (you may submit a second if you are not the principal author). Proposals will be selected through a blind peer review by the conference committee. Authors will be notified of the Program Committee’s decision by February 15, 2015.


    • More details for registration and accomodation will be available soon.

    For questions or requests for additional information, please contact CHS Conference Coordinator Evan Taylor (eptaylor@anthro.umass.edu) or visit the CHS website: http://www.umass.edu/chs

    Conference ‘Cultural Management without Borders’ Deadline for submission ends on June 18th, 2014 

    Call for Papers

    9th Annual Conference of The Association of Cultural Management in Germany, Austria and Switzerland

    15th-17th of January 2015
    Heilbronn University – Campus Künzelsau

    Cultural Management Without Borders
    The Internationalization of Cultural Management and Cultural Management Education

    With significant restructuring of international arts and cultural exchange, especially due to the digital revolution and the shifts in European societies caused by immigration, the field of cultural management is challenged to adopt an open attitude and explore new questions. Europe has witnessed incisive phases of internationalization through colonialism and post‐colonial theories.
    Simultaneously, it is experiencing dynamic changes led by the influences of technology and the exponential growth of the cultural and creative industries. So questions regarding the role of European culture and the international perception of Europe are pivotal. Some of the numerous questions that have to be addressed in the context of the 9th annual conference of the Association of Cultural Management are therefore:

    • What key competencies does a cultural manager require to work as a broker between different cultures and different cultural value systems?
    • How can future cultural managers be prepared for tasks in an international environment?
    • What roles do European cultural goods and national cultural management approaches play in the globalized world?
    • Who holds the interpretive power over what we transport abroad as culture and hence as an image of ourselves? Is culture constrained by the role of the soft diplomat?

    Consequently the aim of the conference is threefold:

    • To critically scrutinize cultural management training to date, with a view to expanding baseline requirements, testing fresh perspectives and gaining new inputs (e.g. cooperation projects).
    • To learn from scientists who are developing new cultural management approaches and thought patterns in national contexts that can be applied internationally, as well as from practitioners successfully working in
      international organizations or projects.
    • To reflect on the role of (European) culture as well as that of common
      external cultural policy in the context of globalization.

    Contributions in German or English should relate to unpublished projects which are concluded, or still in progress. The submitted texts should not exceed 500 words. Review criteria are: the originality of the proposition, the methodical approach as well as the practical application of the study. The conference offers two presentation platforms: lectures (30 minutes) and workshop discussions (lecture and moderated discussion). The latter may include a co‐speaker from the field. Co‐speakers may be proposed; alternatively, the conference committee may suggest a suitable co‐speaker.

    The conference committee will make the final decision regarding selection and categorization. We are looking forward to your contributions!

    The deadline for submission ends on June 18th, 2014.

    Please submit to: raphaela.henze@hs‐heilbronn.de

    Conference chaired by: Prof. Dr. Raphaela Henze, Heilbronn University
