Cultural Landscapes and Heritage Values


Cultural Landscapes and Heritage Values - Embracing Change in the Management of Place
May 13 - 15, 2015
UMass Amherst Campus, Amherst, Massachusetts USA

Themes include the following:

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.

To propose a symposium, paper, or poster, please submit an abstract (maximum 200 words) HERE  by January 15, 2015.
