Call for papers for upcoming conference in Sydney, NS

Heritage interpretation in Atlantic Canada—Dialogues between theory and practice, an intangible cultural heritage conference, will be held in Sydney, NS, September 13 to 15, 2019. Conference organizers seek proposals for papers, workshops or focus groups.

The world of heritage in Atlantic Canada has shifted dramatically over the past decades. A changing economy has meant a greater reliance on heritage as a way of revitalizing communities once based on resource industries.

The very nature of how heritage is defined has shifted, as well, as intangible heritage has emerged as a concept supplementing or replacing the longstanding world of tangible heritage. This conference intends to address these two issues through the perspectives of two worlds: those of heritage theorists and heritage practitioners.

Organizers invite proposals for papers, workshops, or focus groups that will help to bridge the gap between heritage theory and practice, and the divide between economic revitalization and cultural authenticity. Their goal is to initiate a dialogue between researchers who have expertise in the field of intangible heritage and the people whose activities are directly related to the interpretation of heritage, whether in museums, cultural information centres, historical sites, or elsewhere in Atlantic Canada.

Participants should submit proposals, in English or in French, by January 28, 2019. Proposals, including paper or workshop title, name, brief biographical sketch, and a 100-150 word abstract should be sent to Ronald Labelle, Department of Communication and Languages, Cape Breton University, PO Box 5300, Sydney, NS, B1P 6L2 (This email address is being protected from spambots.
