Call for Papers: 2016 Conference on Asia-Pacific Religious Culture Heritage Conservation
1st August 2016, Taiwan
DATE: 1/8/2016
In 2008, the General Assembly of ICOMOS urged nations worldwide to acknowledge the importance of "Religious Heritage and Sacred Places." That plea has since then inspired conservationists in the Asia-Pacific Region to consider and explore an appropriate protective measure - a balance between western art restoration theories and the uniqueness of Asian religious heritage sites. In addition to being scientifically-sound, heritage conservation methods also have to be locality-minded, culturally-focused, and sensitive to universal values.

Topic1: Discourse on Religious Heritage Conservation and Restoration
Topic2: The Impacts of Disasters on Religious Architecture and Artifacts Preservation
Topic3: Myths and Reflections on the Preservation and Restoration of Religious Sites
Others: Issues pertaining to this seminar.

Abstracts’ submission deadline: 1st August 2016.
