Reconstructions as tools of future-making

08:49 by Cornelius Holtorf

The papers in the first published volume of ICOMOS University Forum derive from the pilot ICOMOS University Forum Workshop “A contemporary provocation: reconstructions as tools of future-making” held 13–15 March 2017 at ICOMOS International Headquarters in Paris, France.

The aim of the meeting was to stimulate dialogues between academics at Universities and heritage practitioners from around the world. Now the dialogues can continue with the published papers as a starting point!

This first volume was edited by Cornelius Holtorf (Sweden), Loughlin Kealy (Ireland) and Toshiyuki Kono (Japan). It contains a paper by Cornelius Holtorf on Conservation and heritage as future-making.

In 2017, Linnaeus University in Kalmar, Sweden, was awarded a UNESCO Chair on Heritage Futures. This is one of eight Chairs in Sweden, and the only one within the cultural sector. Cornelius Holtorf, holder of the UNESCO Chair, alongside his team, will continue to generate ideas through this forum.
