Saison 9 : Expériences, suites.
À partir de recherches empiriques, nous discuterons des défis méthodologiques et épistémologiques lancés par la question des expériences vécues dans un contexte touristique. De l’analyse historique du récit de voyage à l’observation participante, en passant par l’étude des blogs ou des soirées de voyageurs, nous étudierons différents modes de restitution des expériences. Nous examinerons le rôle du récit dans la reconstruction du sens et des motivations du voyage, la mise à distance des émotions ou la production d’un discours expert. Nous enquêterons sur ces émotions, les apprentissages, les capacités d’analyse des situations, de négociations et d’ajustement entre les attentes et l’expérience vécue. Nous examinerons le rôle de la situation d’enquête et la place du chercheur dans le récit et la reconstruction des expériences vécues.

CFP:New Approaches to Heritage Ethics

New Approaches to Heritage Ethics: Interdisciplinary conversations on heritage, crime, conflicts and rights
An international conference of the Centre for Heritage at the University of Kent (Canterbury)
23-24 June 2014

Heritage and ethics are too often considered through the lens of a single, specific theme. For instance, analyses commonly focus on separate topics like crime and heritage (e.g. unlawful excavations, vandalism and the removal or theft of cultural property), conflict and heritage (e.g. war, civil unrest, iconoclasm as well as disputes over competing visions of the past), and rights and heritage (e.g. access to cultural and socio-economic rights through heritage initiatives, in particular for disfranchised groups).
Integrating and expanding upon this prior scholarship, the aim of this conference is to consider these three topics of crime, conflict and rights in relation to heritage in an interrelated and holistic manner. Such a comprehensive framework will result in novel approaches to understanding and conceptualizing each of these issues, as well as lay the groundwork for new practical approaches to protecting various rights while mitigating heritage crime and conflicts. This conference also aims to enable academics, heritage, museum and law enforcement professionals, students and community leaders to engage in an innovative and productive conversation with one another. In working across the traditional boundaries that separate the great diversity of academic and professional disciplines whose work all touches upon this burgeoning field – including archaeology, anthropology, sociology, criminology, history, economics, human rights, law, and heritage conservation and management – this conference will open up new and important lines of cooperation and inquiry.

We are particularly interested in submissions that consider the following themes:

– Looting of classical and archaeological sites and conflict;

–  Relationships between looting of classical and archaeological sites and social and economic rights and opportunities;

– Engagements of communities in the prevention of vandalism and the willful destruction of heritage;

– Approaches for taking account of conflicting understandings and visions of the past;

– Practical issues in the promotion of cultural, social and economic rights through heritage;

– Theoretical and applied approaches for preventing and mitigating heritage crime and conflicts, or for promoting social and economic rights through culturally- and historically-minded means;

–  Critical approaches to the legal regulation of heritage with particular emphasis on rights.

CFP:2014 European Conference on Heritage Interpretation

 Interpret Europe 2014 Conference:

“Heritage Interpretation and Tourism –

Enhancing the tourist’s experience and benefitting host communities” 

10 to 13 May 2014 / Primošten, Croatia

With its beautiful coast Dalmatia is a leading destination for seaside holidays. Away from the beaches it also boasts rich natural and cultural sites and attractive towns and villages that have huge potential for heritage interpretation. We will consider how high quality interpretation can attract people to visit heritage sites, encourage them to explore inland and help extend tourism beyond the peak season. We will explore how heritage interpretation can bring benefits both for tourists and for local communities.

At the conference we want to discuss how:

  • heritage interpretation can complement resort tourism
  • well-planned and well-executed interpretation can inspire tourists
  • interpretation can impact positively on the economy of popular tourism destinations
  • interpretation can also contribute to regional identity and local pride
  • interpretation planning and delivery can involve local people as well as experts
  • we can learn from best practice, success factors, lessons learnt and research results. 

More about the conference at: http://www.interpret-europe.net/top/whats-on/events/conference-2014.html

Deadline for submissions of papers is 31 December 2013 (http://www.interpret-europe.net/top/whats-on/events/conference-2014/call-for-papers.html)

CFP:The Global Impact of UNESCO, 1945-2015, volume of essays

The Global Impact of UNESCO, 1945-2015

In the era of globalization, there is a need for research which explains the cause and the importance of transnational phenomena that affect people’s lives. International organizations are obvious objects of analysis, and an organization that has attracted much attention in recent years is the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization  UNESCO. The Organization’s mission, as defined just after the end of World War II, is to construct intellectual and moral solidarity in order to build “the defenses of peace in the minds of men”. UNESCO has therefore carried out a considerable amount of mental engineering.
Historians have uncovered the roots of many of the soft power initiatives launched to construct sincere solidarity between peoples, but we still know very little about their impact. The overall objectives of this publication is thus to trace their routes from the center to the periphery  from UNESCO’s headquarters in Paris to the member states  to assess the Organization’s global impact from World War II and up till today.
Researchers from around the world are invited and encouraged to submit articles of which up to 15 articles will be chosen for publication.

The publication is sponsored by the Global History of UNESCO Project (www.unesco.aau.dk) and will be presented at a conference in November 2015 on the occasion of UNESCO’s 70th anniversary.
Contributions may be based on questions such as:
How were ideas and initiatives transmitted in practice from the UNESCO headquarters in Paris to the member states and what distribution channels did the UNESCO-related national institutions have with regard to the populations?
What exact knowledge was transferred, domesticated and made available for the construction of “peace in the minds of men”?
How were initiatives made acceptable to the different populations – were they equally implemented in all member states and what explains country-specific priorities?
What effect did the implementation of specific initiatives have on changing people’s mindsets?
Deadlines: 1 May 2014 (abstracts) and 1 November 2014 (articles).
The abstract must be limited to 250 words. Articles are expected to be of max 20 pages and in English and should be clearly written and accessible to both specialists and non-specialists. Abstracts and articles, as well of questions of any kind, should be sent directly to the editor, Professor Poul Duedahl: duedahl@cgs.aau.dk

Short Abstract

We will explore issues arising from the intersections of anthropology and intangible cultural heritage (ICH). By conveying a multiplicity of subjects we will call for in depth considerations around the role of anthropology in the study of ICH, its limits and possibilities.

Long Abstract

Intangible cultural heritage” “means the practices, representations, expressions, knowledge, skills – as well as the instruments, objects, artifacts and cultural spaces associated therewith – that communities, groups and, in some cases, individuals recognize as part of their cultural heritage. c.” (UNESCO, 2003)

This panel will be open to explore several issues arising from the intersections of anthropology and intangible cultural heritage (ICH). What is now called ICH refers to a wide array of subjects commonly studied by anthropologists. The goal of this panel is to explore the multiplicity of subjects that can emerge from those intersections. Papers will address both general and specific topics ranging from (1) anthropological research as a safeguarding tool for ICH; (2) tradition and innovation in ICH; (3) transmission and valorization processes; (5) ICH and experiences of mobility (a. how ICH is being created/recreated in sending and receiving communities; b. the role of ICH in everyday life for people who have moved away – permanently or temporarily – from their places of origin; collective memory as ICH in receiving communities…); (6) ICH and development (a. potential of ICH as an economic resource for local development, b. ICH and tourism, c. ICH as an income generating activity); (7) ICH and selfhood (a. identity; b. resilience; c. embodied practices).

This stream seeks to bring together discourse on the interface between, art, culture, heritage and the law. It is open to researchers in law as well as in other disciplines. To this end papers will be welcomed concerning cultural values, the legal and non-legal regulation of art, culture and heritage as well as the rights which exist in respect of these.

Papers may include, but are not limited to:
• Cultural values;
• Ethical issues concerning the treatment of cultural heritage;
• The relationship between property and culture;
• Cultural rights and human rights;
• Cultural institutions and the law;
• The de-accessioning or acquisition of objects from museums and other cultural institutions;
• Legal protection of artistic works, the built environment and objects of cultural importance;
• The illicit trade in cultural objects;
• Minority rights and interests relevant to culture and heritage; and
• Art and aesthetics and their relationship to law.

« Inventer un patrimoine national comestible : aux origines de la « cuisine éthiopienne »

Résumé :

À l’intérieur comme à l’extérieur des frontières nationales, les restaurants gastronomiques éthiopiens se réclament d’une seule et même « cuisine éthiopienne ». Celle-ci trouve son origine dans l’invention d’une haute cuisine au sein des cours nobiliaires de l’Éthiopie de la fin du xixe siècle. Cette cuisine naît d’une recherche d’amélioration des savoir-faire culinaires propres aux élites sociales et politiques de l’État éthiopien, les chrétiens amharas et tigréens des hauts plateaux du Nord. Elle a gagné entre temps, par la diffusion de la restauration en Éthiopie, une distribution spatiale bien plus vaste que ses seules régions d’origine. Tradition inventée, la « cuisine éthiopienne » acquiert un statut de symbole national entre les années 1880 et les années 1940 sous la plume des voyageurs occidentaux comme des lettrés éthiopiens. Elle est consacrée par la publication, en 1945, d’un manuel scolaire à destination des futures « dames » éduquées de l’empire. À l’heure où les publics comme les instances nationales et internationales reconnaissent la valeur patrimoniale de la cuisine et des pratiques alimentaires, cette présentation se propose de revenir, à travers l’exemple éthiopien, sur les origines sociales, culturelles et politiques de ce processus de patrimonialisation de la cuisine.
