The workshop on critical heritage and social justice aims to bring researchers from heritage studies, anthropology, architecture, conservation, geography, sociology, archaeology departments and the heritage and museum sectors to discuss and define themes of critical heritage in a rapidly changing world in the 21st century.
Social justice can be seen as entangled with many of the central themes of critical heritage that require urgent responses, these include the climate crisis, conflict, refugee crises, social, cultural and economic inequalities, increasing all forms of racism and discrimination especially of ethnic minorities and different gender identities.
In particular, the workshop aims to locate and develop theoretical approaches and methods to respond to social, economic and political issues.
