Présentation des nouvelles découvertes et des défis de l’archéologie subaquatique par des experts et archéologues dont le renommé Michel L’Hour et l’avocat spécialisé James Goold

Il est certes moins visible et son accessibilité moins évidente, pour utant, le patrimoine culturel subaquatique revêt une dimension historique incontestable, partie intégrante du patrimoine commun de l’humanité. À l’occasion de la Conférence des États parties à la Convention de 2001 sur la protection du patrimoine culturel subaquatique, l’UNESCO et ses partenaires offrent l’occasion à tous d’une immersion dans les profondeurs, en deux temps, à la découverte des patrimoines abrités par les fonds marins. Pour ce baptême, une première descente en direction de l’épave du Danton, puis cap sur des cas de chasse au trésor sur les épaves historiques et traversée des nouvelles technologies de l’archéologie subaquatique.
Un voyage tout en images, mystérieux, didactique et aussi scientifique, animé par des experts et des archéologues passionnés.

Placeless Memories – Digital Constructions of Memory and Identity

May 19, 2017

Call for papers and/or posters

Organized by:Organisé par :
Institute for the Public Understanding of the Past (IPUP), United Kingdom

Location of event:Lieu de l’événement : York, England, United Kingdom

More info:Plus d’infos : URL

Description :
The Institute for the Public Understanding of the Past (University of York, UK) is pleased to announce a one-day conference in York on 14 July 2017 that aims to open up discussion on the nature of memory and identity construction online and in digital formats. We invite proposals for 20 minute papers on any aspect of the digital construction of memory and identity, and the use of digital resources as source material for scholars studying these issues. The Internet is becoming an everyday space where identities and memories are not only stored, but also shaped and negotiated. User-generated content from websites and OSNs (online- socialnetworks) is often considered in opposition to authorised or official forms of knowledge (academic, published, or governmental sources) and has been dismissed as frivolous, unmediated, and apparently spontaneous. There is, however, also growing interest in how user-generated content might be used in conjunction with more official forms of knowledge to interrogate the ways in which individuals conceive, communicate, and negotiate national and local histories, memories, and identities. The Internet draws people from different cultural, national, and political backgrounds into dialogue, precipitating both acrimonious clashes and productive knowledge exchange, and creating a deterritorialised forum for the articulation and construction of memory. This under-researched area is of particular importance in an increasingly digital age, and is also timely given recent media interest in online responses to the destruction of physical sites in the Middle East and North Africa. These acts have been met by efforts to digitally preserve threatened places and objects through programs such as The Million Image database or the crowd-sourced Facebook group Palmyra 3D Model, highlighting the role that rapidly developing technologies might play in education and preservation. Our challenge, however, is to consider the Internet not just as a tool for preserving histories, but as an emergent space where diverse memories and identities are actively shaped, contested, and negotiated in the present moment by a wide variety of different stakeholders. For the disciplines of history, media studies, memory studies, tourism studies, and critical heritage studies, the ways in which events with global reach have been hotly debated in vastly different guises across a range of online forums is of central significance.

Description :
Afterlives of violence: contested geographies of past, present and future

A one-day, interdisciplinary conference at the University of Brighton, 29th June 2017

10-5 in M2 Boardroom, Grand Parade – registration from 9

Keynote address from Berber Bevernage, Ghent University

Organised by the Centre for Research in Memory, Narrative and Histories and the Critical Studies Research Group

Traces of the past (including past futures) have the potential to unsettle linear understandings of time underpinning discourses that aim to draw a line between the past and the present. Such material legacies become subject to a complex articulation of contested regimes of visibility, readership and belonging that can also be explored in their material and spatial implications.

The aim of this postgraduate conference is to expand traditional understandings of the politics of memory and to highlight the relationship between spatiality and temporality. Important questions and areas of exploration involve, among others; how can we best approach, both methodologically and theoretically, spaces haunted by violent events? How can we best account for the multidirectional constellation of repetitions, anticipations and repressed returns in its geographical manifestations?

Topics to be covered might include:

Politics of time, chronopolitics
Spectral geographies, haunting and place
Ruins and processes of ruination
Contested geographies of memory, memoryscapes
Transitional justice and temporal difference
Landscapes of futurity, hope
Urban and rural memories
Politics of heritage and tourism
Time and postcolonial theory
Oral history and time
Time and the body
Landscapes of memorialisation
New materialist archaeologies
Geographies of absence/presence
Queer time(s)
Monuments and memorials
Rhythms of everyday life
Mnemohistory and space

There is no registration fee. We welcome proposals of no more than 300 words for 20-minute papers.

Please submit your abstract by Friday 19th May 2017 to violentafterlives@gmail.com

Submission of abstracts deadline: 19 May 2017

(ir)replaceable—a discussion about heritage, conservation and future-making
Wednesday, 21 June, 2017
Ann Harding Conference Centre, University of Canberra
12.00-5.30pm, followed by drinks

Join Cornelius Holtorf, Professor of Archaeology, Linnaeus University and guest of the Centre for Creative and Cultural Research, University of Canberra, and leading Australian heritage theorists and practitioners, to discuss what happens when conservation is envisioned as future-making rather than preservation. The symposium will commence with a presentation by Cornelius Holtorf in conversation with Denis Byrne, Senior Research Fellow, Western Sydney University – two of today’s most innovative and provocative heritage thinkers. Questions to be explored include:

Is the past irreplaceable and non-renewable or renewed and remade through heritage conservation?
What can we learn from reflecting on the history of heritage conservation?
How have our current heritage practices and policies contributed to building a more just and sustainable society?
What future risks and opportunities can be influenced by our policies and practices in the present?

We welcome further provocations on these topics, broadly interpreted, to build a constructive, collaborative agenda for the Australian and New Zealand Chapter of the Association of Critical Heritage Studies (ACHS), in the lead up to the 2018 Heritage Across Borders Conference in Hangzhou, China. Confirmed provocateurs include Alice Gorman (Flinders University), Ian Travers (President, Australia ICOMOS), Tim Winter (President, ACHS) and Sheridan Burke (President, ICOMOS Advisory Committee; President, International Scientific Committee on 20th Century Heritage).

Submit a provocation (see instructions below), come to join the discussion, or to listen and reflect on what the future of heritage might be. A full programme will be disseminated in early June. Online registration is now open.

Conveners: Tracy Ireland (University of Canberra) and Steve Brown (University of Sydney) (ACHS Aus/NZ Chapter Coordinators), in conjunction with Denis Byrne (Western Sydney University).

Details of our previous symposium ‘(in)significance’ can be found at this link.

How to submit a proposal for a provocation: a provocation will comprise a succinct (five-minute) presentation that raises an important current or future issue for heritage, contests, or offers an alternative perspective on an accepted component of heritage theory and/or practice.

The proposal should comprise a title, abstract (up to 200 words) and author(s) bio (up to 150 words) and be submitted by 31 May 2017 to both Tracy Ireland Tracy.Ireland@canberra.edu.au by email and Steve Brown steve.brown@sydney.edu.au by email.
