UPCOMING EVENTS

Heritages, Spaces, Borders: Border and Boundaries in/of Heritages
Ljubljana, April 1–3, 2020

The ZRC SAZU (Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts) Institute of Slovenian Ethnology (Ljubljana, Slovenia) announces the meeting of the SIEF WG Cultural Heritage and Property in Ljubljana, April 1-3, 2020

This conference invites reflections on the mutually constitutive interplay between boundaries, borders and heritage as a metacultural process. Boundaries, borders, limits and divisions and their multiplicative effects can be focal points of transition, encounter and conflict. They include territorial boundaries (between settlements, regions, countries); borders that mark identity at the level of local, ethnic, national or religious communities; administrative boundaries that delimit matters linked to the definition, legitimization and regulation of heritage; and classificatory boundaries, which mark distinctions between tangible and intangible heritage, between natural and cultural heritage, between laymen and experts.
