Cultural Landscapes Conference at the University of Massachusetts

This timely conference, Cultural Landscapes and Heritage Values: Embracing Change in the Management of Place, will emphasize the need to acknowledge and engage change in the successful interpretation, conservation, and management of landscapes; the often unproductive dichotomy of “natural” and “cultural” resources; the factors of social and economic inequality inherent in the designation and management of living landscapes; and other critical issues in heritage studies today that are raised and provoked by cultural landscape research and conservation.

Plenary speakers include Graham Fairclough, Newcastle University and Jane Lennon Deakin University.

Abstracts are due January 15, 2015. The Conference is May 13-15, 2015.
