Heritage studies have become a significant and well-identified area of both scholarly study and societal engagement. The management of artistic, cultural and intellectual resources is an increasingly difficult challenge that requires the ability to appreciate, and the skills to protect and conserve, the diversity of human production.

This conference aims to host and promote discussions about ways in which human heritage is perceived, described, as well as managed in contemporary society, with particular focus on Asian contexts. We are interested in highlighting the challenges in relation to intangible heritage, which poses issues of ethics such as property rights, political control in totalitarian regimes, and endangerment under the pressure of globalising forces.

We invite papers as well as panel proposals on the following topics:

  • Descriptive/documentary approaches to intellectual heritage, in terms of thought, language, and cultural/artistic performances and traditions
  • Heritage Perception and Management
  • Challenging the Heritage Narrative
  • Heritage and Film in Popular Culture
  • Migration Networks and Heritage
  • Heritage and the Digital World
  • Heritage Tourism
  • Heritage and Gender
