Naples, Italy - A thought-provoking seminar titled "Cultural Heritage in Construction: From Collective Memory to Cultural Heritage" is set to take place on October 26, 2023, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at CNR-ISMed, Humanities Centre, Naples.
This seminar, part of the COST Action underground4value project, enters its fourth year, promising to delve into diverse perspectives on the preservation and evolution of cultural heritage.
A central theme of the seminar is the role of oral history and new cultural heritages, often resulting from a fusion of influences and experiences. These diverse traditions appear to be constantly nourished by connections to their countries of origin. Rather than treating memory as a static archive to be dusted off, these communities view it as an ever-evolving thread of history—a catalyst for change, solidarity, and cohesion among generations.
This exploration of memory invites a critical revisitation of collective expectations, interpretations, and accomplishments. By shedding light on these rich cultural heritages, the seminar offers fresh perspectives on understanding the past and its relevance to the present and a sustainable future.
Organized by CNR-ISMed, CNR-IRiSS, CNR-ISPC, and supported by COST-European Cooperation in Science and Technology, this seminar promises to be an insightful journey into the transformation of cultural heritage and its impact on diverse communities, with the ultimate goal of driving sustainable development and empowerment for local communities.
