Dates: 3 – 6 July 2011
Scope: Sharing Cultures 2011 follows the path established by the previous Conference on Intangible Heritage (Sharing Cultures 2009) and aims at pushing further the discussion on Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH), under the main topics proposed by the UNESCO Convention (please refer to the list of Topics). Now that the concept of ICH has gained its rightful place among the scientific community and that a large number of research works are recognised as fundamental pieces for the comprehension of human societies, organisations and ways of living, scientific events thatgather scholars, researchers and academics with on-going work on ICH are privileged moments to share experiences, problems, questions and conclusions. Sharing Cultures 2011 aims at being one of those moments, gathering some of the most prominent researchers in this area, inviting all Delegates to share their recent work and achievements. Furthermore, Sharing Cultures 2011 will include a number of workshops on traditional craftsmanship, promoting some hands-on experience to all Delegates, who will have the opportunity to learn from the real owners of traditional know-how. Authors intending to submit papers to Sharing Cultures 2011 are encouraged to address one of the topics of the Conference, making evidence of ongoing research work. The Conference will welcome papers and presentations on field work, case studies and theoretical approaches to ICH.
