With just one month to go until our call for papers deadline (9th April 2018), we wanted to highlight some of the questions that we hope to explore during the conference, and provide more details of how to submit an abstract.
The conference programme will be interdisciplinary to encourage provocative, creative and constructive dialogue in the sharing of research, case studies and best practice relating to the conference themes. These include, but are not limited to:
- What are the pressures upon Jewish heritage in the urban context and what levels of protection and conservation are in place to deal with such pressures?
- How can new and sensitive uses be found for Jewish heritage in towns and cities?
- What management models can be applied to Jewish heritage to ensure its sustainability?
- What forms of relationships exist between Jewish heritage sites and urban tourism?
- What are the touristic experiences with Jewish heritage?
- To what extent is the interpretation of Jewish heritage effective and geared to an increasingly cosmopolitan and younger audience?
- What is the role of the museum in the mediation and representation of Jewish heritage?
- How is the intangible cultural heritage of the Jewish community communicated?
Are there any other areas within the theme of ‘urban Jewish heritage’ that you would be interested in exploring? Give your suggestions in the comments section below.
