CfP: IJHS Special Issue – Heritage and Leisure
September 19, 2016

Extant scholarly literature has been documented on heritage and tourism. The main stream heritage tourism literature has been link leisure to touristic activities, which characterizes tourists are “culturally inauthentic” and as passive sightseers. They come to heritage for leisure, recreation or entertainment, with little or no agency in the meanings they construct at heritage sites. Therefore, not only the complexity of leisure of heritage tourists has been simplified, but also the strong linkages between heritage and leisure, a broader concept than tourism, have long been neglected. The notion of heritage has pervaded a variety of fields of science of humanities, among them is leisure, which demonstrates the lived experience of locals, and provides indispensable meanings and identity for communities and individuals. And both heritage and leisure root themselves into cultural fabrics of social lives.


The engagement with heritage becomes a potential site for the exploration, creation and re-creation of identity, and is central to an understanding of cultural and leisure practices. As manifestations of culture, forms of heritage and leisure forge and articulate identities of individuals and communities, as well as regions. In the time of globalization and multiculturalism, leisure, a cultural manifestation, provides a way to a better understanding of societies and brings together communities. More studies lay the attention on the social and political reasons behind the conservation of a traditional leisure in certain communities and the learning or exchange of leisure in migrated communities. As observed some forms of leisure have become intangible heritage, which are conserved as a tradition, either in communities with a long history or migration communities with a divergence of cultures.


However, gaps still exist between heritage and leisure studies academia. In this special issue, we aim to bridge the gaps and generate dialogue opportunities between these two sections.  Therefore, following issues will be open to discussion: How leisure can be viewed as heritage?  How do heritage sites provide meaningful leisure?  How history and culture shape leisure and heritage? How traditional leisure is kept and transformed in modern society? What are the meanings of leisure to locals and how they contribute to their well-being? What do tourists’ experice and feel heritage via leituer activities? How leisure becomes heritage and how they jointly build communities and shape cultural and ethnic identities? How does a local leisure tradition articulate local notion of heritage? What are the role of heritage in the leisure experience and benefits to the wider society? Also how immigrants maintain their leisure at home countries and acquire new leisure, thus build a more diverse heritage in the host countries?


The deadline for submissions of drafts is 30 July 2017

Le médiévalisme. Images et représentations du Moyen Âge

Numéro coordonné par Yohann Chanoir, Laurent Di Filippo et Audrey Tuaillon Demésy

Depuis la Renaissance, les sociétés occidentales manifestent un « goût pour le Moyen Âge  » (Amalvi, 1996). Force est de reconnaître que cet intérêt s’est accéléré depuis les années 2000 : la saga littéraire Game of Thrones s’est vendue à plus de cinquante millions d’exemplaires dans le monde ; la bande dessinée médiévale a conquis un large public ; l’adaptation de la matière arthurienne est en plein essor (Blanc, 2016), comme l’illustrent les huit tomes dérivés de la série Kaamelott publiés entre 2008 et 2015, ou encore le cycle Excalibur de Jean-Luc Istin ; le cinéma « moyenâgeux  » (de la Bretèque, 2015) a les faveurs du public et des studios. Les grandes figures médiévales sont revisitées (Robin des Bois de Ridley Scott, 2010 ; Robin des Bois, la véritable histoire, Anthony Marciano, 2015) tandis que la geste des Vikings bénéficie d’un revival. Enfin, le succès de séries télévisées, qu’elles soient globalisées comme Vikings ou Game of Thrones, ou plus localisées comme Wolf Hall en 2015, souligne aussi la vigueur de l’intérêt pour cette période.

Le panorama serait incomplet sans prendre en compte les autres manifestations du Moyen Âge dans notre société au-delà des expressions médiatiques. La présence sur nos étals de produits aux noms médiévaux comme le pain Viking, l’audience des reconstitutions comme celle de la bataille d’Hastings et l’intérêt public pour les fêtes médiévales, entre autres, suggèrent que le Moyen Âge – ou ce qu’il est censé être – s’affirme bel et bien comme un passé qui reste présent. Approprié par de nombreux acteurs, diffusé par des vecteurs différents, transformé selon des intérêts particuliers, revisité par des ambitions plurielles, le Moyen Âge est un objet réinventé. Cette fabrication du passé dans notre présent porte un nom : le médiévalisme. Ce concept peut être défini comme la reconstruction du Moyen Âge dans des siècles ultérieurs. Il s’inscrit alors dans la question des régimes d’historicité (Hartog, 2002), définis comme les relations entre passé, présent et futur développées par une société. Reconnu par la communauté académique, le médiévalisme fait l’objet d’un vigoureux effort historiographique, d’un « dynamisme croissant » (Ferré, 2010 : 9). Au cœur de nombreux séminaires, de plusieurs monographies, de colloques, il est désormais entré dans une période analytique, après avoir nourri une phase essentiellement descriptive. Les premiers bilans ont été dressés (Kendrick, Moran, Reid, 2003), tandis que des synthèses globales (Falconieri, 2015) et thématiques, comme sur la bande dessinée (Marine, 2016), ont été proposées. Il est désormais possible de s’interroger sur la portée du médiévalisme, sur ses champs d’application et sur ses relations avec la médiévistique – définie comme la science et les acteurs qui étudient le Moyen Âge – et les autres sciences humaines. La réflexion peut être ordonnée autour des axes suivants :

♦ Le Moyen Âge comme mythe contemporain
♦ Le Moyen Âge fantastique
♦ Les pratiques du Moyen Âge
♦ L’utilisation politique du Moyen Âge

The last decade has witnessed, notably in the Iberian Peninsula, a significant increase in the interest by museum and heritage professionals in the reflection on the adoption of inclusive practices and processes. Resulting in part from growing pressure and demand from civil society on the right to cultural enjoyment and participation, as well as the progressive visibility of these issues in academic and professional discourses, this interest has resulted in a calibrated search for knowledge and good practices that can equip professionals with the necessary skills to implement an inclusive practice, accessible to all, either through acquisition of academic training in specialization and postgraduate courses, or seeking answers to specific questions and / or more generalist approaches in the short-term training market.

One of the pillar concepts advanced in this formal and informal vocational training has been that of universal accessibility, that is, of the initial conception of any cultural space and / or program as inherently inclusive from the outset. In terms of physical barriers, this objective would be easily attainable, if that was the wish of the respective owner or designer – which, argued by proponents of universal accessibility, is not, in most cases, what happens. But going further, universal accessibility, one that transcends cultural, social, economic and intellectual barriers, seems a distant and hardly achievable ambition, perhaps only within the reach of urban, cosmopolitan, and hyperfinanced contexts. Thus, many professionals, despite seeking and training in this area, feel themselves to be on an indefinite path, no longer in the area of lip service, but not yet in the land of universal accessibility fully achieved and practiced.

The International Congress on Education and Accessibility in Museums and Heritage has consolidated a growing international importance in the discussion of Education and Accessibility in museums and heritage. Its last edition, in 2016, took to Spain around 150 speakers, from several countries, including Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Spain, France, Italy, Mexico, Portugal and Russia. The Congress hosted professionals from museums, art galleries, natural parks, central, regional and local government bodies, schools and universities, cultural facilities, tourism, industry, Architecture and design, among others.

In its fourth edition, the first to be held in Portugal, the congress aims to question the concepts and methods that have supported education and training for accessibility, in particular universal accessibility.

The Congress has three main objectives:

1) To make a state of the art regarding learning about accessibility and inclusion, from the perspective of theoretical and conceptual teaching and its practical implementation.

2) To conduct a formal diagnostic study on teaching and training concearning accessibility applicable to Museums and Heritage.

3) To identify the acquisition of competencies and best practices capable of improving the performance of all agents.

We invite you to submit proposals for three general topics to be developed on each day of the congress. These are as follows:

October 2 – Learning for inclusion: how and where is it taught?

  • What are the similarities and differences in the legislation for inclusion?
  • What are the contents and formal methodologies of teaching and training institutions in this area?
  • How is the available information about the topic built and delivered?

October 3 – Academic research and professional practice: breaking down barriers and building bridges.

  • What are the trends of academic research in the area of universal accessibility and inclusion?
  • What practical and applicable results in the field produce the relationship between academic reflection and production and professional practice in the context of Museums and Heritage?

October 4 – Inclusion Practices: a teaching laboratory for universal accessibility?

  • Which inclusion projects and programs outside the museum and heritage universe could be held as examples of good practices for museums and heritage?

Presentations will be accepted in Portuguese, Spanish and English. There will be no simultaneous translation, nor will Skype / videoconference presentations be accepted.

Presentation proposals should include: name of the author; institutional affiliation; title of the communication; 3 to 5 keywords; abstract (up to 400 words); brief biographical note (up to 150 words).
Proposals must be sent to 4congreamp@gmail.com by May 12, 2017.
