Trans-Atlantic Dialogues on Cultural Heritage: Heritage, Tourism and Traditions is brought to you by the Ironbridge International Institute for Cultural Heritage, University of Birmingham and the Collaborative for Cultural Heritage Management and Policy, University of Illinois.
This conference offers a venue for exploring three critical interactions in this trans-Atlantic dialogue: heritage, tourism and traditions. North America and Europe fashioned two dominant cultural tropes from their powerful and influential intellectual traditions, which have been enacted in Central/South America and Africa, everywhere implicating indigenous cultures.
- How do heritages travel?
- How is trans-Atlantic tourism shaped by heritage?
- To what extent have traditions crossed and re-crossed the Atlantic?
- How have heritage and tourism economies emerged based upon flows of peoples and popular imaginaries?
