Archaeology and Economic Development Conference
29 May 2012
The Institute will host the Archaeology and Economic Development conference (AED2012) on 21-22 September and registration is now open for the event.
This major international conference, organised under the auspices of the Institute's Archaeology and Development Research Network, by Paul Burtenshaw and Peter Gould, has attracted a range of experts to discuss the theoretical, practical and ethical issues surrounding the use of archaeology in projects for economic development in what is expected to be a vibrant discussion among attendees and speakers.
For archaeologists and heritage professionals, the conference will provide insight into the state of the art, in both theory and practice, for pursuing economic development goals utilising archaeological and heritage assets.
Any archaeologist or heritage professional who is either interested in pursuing an economic development project or is actively engaged in such projects should take away from the conference a stronger sense of the theory behind economic development, especially at the community level, and a sense from diverse case studies of the challenges, opportunities and practical steps required to implement community economic development projects in the field.
