The Many Faces of Heritage: An Interdisciplinary Colloquium
Monday, Apr 29, 2019 at 8:30 AM EDT
This event is now sold out! If you have registered online already and will be unable to attend, please contact the organizer by responding to your event confirmation email.
We invite you to discover and share common interests in the study, teaching, and practice of all aspects of heritage conservation, planning and management at the University of Waterloo and beyond.
Heritage has evolved from a focus on the preservation of ancient built environments to an interdisciplinary field covering issues as wide as land-use planning, lived cultural expressions, architecture, natural areas conservation, archaeology, and digital media story-telling. Increasingly, critical heritage approaches come to the fore, touching on questions such as politics and power relationships, social justice, race and contested narratives, as well as Indigenous reconciliation. The community of interest in heritage has spread far and wide.
Academics and professional practitioners from across the greater heritage community will come together to highlight the latest interdisciplinary heritage research and ideas, explore collaborative opportunities, consider emerging challenges in heritage practice, and help foster the growth of a community of shared interest centred at the University of Waterloo.
The information and advice gathered from the colloquium will be used by the Heritage Resources Centre to guide the development of a stronger community of heritage practice, research and teaching centred at the University of Waterloo. The Heritage Resources Centre will also use the collected ideas and insights to explore the development of new educational opportunities for University of Waterloo students and professionals pursuing careers in various aspects of heritage conservation, planning and management.
