The School of Indigenous and Canadian Studies invites submissions from related scholars and practitioners of Architecture, Curatorial Studies, Engineering, Heritage Studies, History, Indigenous Studies, Planning, and Public History from universities and communities across the National Capital and beyond for its 14th Annual Graduate Student Heritage Conservation Symposium.
"Heritage Intersections: People and Placemaking” is a one-day, student-run symposium exploring the following themes:
- The roles of theorists, practitioners, and communities within placemaking initiatives and understanding spirit of place
- Sharing narratives, authority, and expanding understandings of place
- Applying different disciplinary lenses to add nuance to narratives and present new solutions to conservation questions
- How adapting cross disciplinary approaches addresses intersections of tangible and intangible heritage
- Methods and processes of stakeholder engagement which bridge the gaps between intangible and tangible heritage
This year’s symposium wishes to interrogate how heritage and conservation practices facilitate, and respond to, processes of placemaking.
The symposium will be held on April 27, 2019.
Submission of a no more than 300 word abstract with working title and a short biography or CV is required by January 26, 2019.
