Sharing Cultures – 4th International Conference on Intangible Heritage (Portugal, Sept 21-23)
SHARING CULTURES – 4th International Conference on Intangible Heritage
September 21-23, 2015 * Lagos * Algarve * Portugal
Organised by: Green Lines Institute for Sustainable Development
SHARING CULTURES 2015 – 4th International Conference on Intangible Heritage aims at pushing further the discussion on Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH), under the main topics proposed by the UNESCO Convention adding some new field of discussion, namely on what concerns management and promotion of ICH, educational matters and musealization (please refer to the list of Topics).
The concept of ICH gained its rightful place among the scientific community during the last two decades and a significant amount of work has been done by a large number of researchers, academics and practitioners, leading to the recognition of ICH as fundamental piece for the comprehension of human societies, organisations and ways of living. Accordingly, scientific events that gather scholars, researchers and academics with on-going work on ICH are privileged moments to share experiences, problems, questions and conclusions. SHARING CULTURES in its 2015 edition aims at consolidating its rightful place among those events.
As in its previous editions SHARING CULTURES 2015 will include a number of workshops promoting some hands-on experience to all Delegates who will have the opportunity to learn traditional know-how from its owners and practitioners.
Authors intending to submit papers to SHARING CULTURES 2015 are encouraged to address one of the topics of the Conference by providing evidence of ongoing research work.
The Conference will welcome papers and presentations on field work, case studies and theoretical approaches to ICH.
SHARING CULTURES 2015 is a peer reviewed conference.
