Sustainable Heritage Bidecennial Conference: Strategic Research Questions
Date: 22th - 25th March 2021, 4:00 pm–6:45 pm

To mark 20 years of Sustainable Heritage at UCL, the UCL Institute for Sustainable Heritage is holding a Bidecennial Conference in March 2021. The Sustainable Heritage Bidecennial Conference will take place over four days from 22 – 25 March 2021, starting at 4pm GMT each day.

“Research into cultural heritage inhabits the space between humanities and science. It is critical, collaborative and interdisciplinary. This makes it challenging on many levels, continually questioning experiments, concepts and theories; applying qualitative and quantitative methods of research; ideally moving fluidly between research, policy and impact and often doing so disruptively; requiring discipline-rooted researchers with an immense breadth of expertise.

Our bidecennial conference will consider where the field might go next within the context of what appears to be a very open research landscape. The outcomes will contribute to the wider debate that is defining the strategic challenges of heritage research.

The programme will consist of invited, visionary contributions exploring questions of theory, methodology, impact, sustainability, and the presentations are expected to focus on the future and to reflect on the interdisciplinary and collaborative nature of heritage research.”

This event will be held on Zoom. Participation is free of charge, but registration is requested.

  • Modern and contemporary heritage | 23 March 4pm
