    Resilient cultural heritage and communities in Europe

    Call for posters – REACH project opening conference

    The REACH project, RE-designing Access to Cultural Heritage for a wider participation in preservation, (re-)use and management of European culture, is a three-year project aiming to establish a social platform as a sustainable space for meeting, discussion and collaboration for all those engaged in the promotion of participatory approaches to cultural heritage, giving tools and instruments in order to trigger a debate on how participatory approaches can contribute to develop a common horizon of understanding. The programme of the conference includes a rich mixture of skills and experiences; it offers a great opportunity to discuss and compare successful examples of participatory processes and reflect on the role of Cultural Heritage in cohesion and social integration.

    Modernism, modernisation and the rural landscape

    MODSCAPES_conference2018

    The impact of the Modern Movement and modernisation processes on rural landscapes in Europe and beyond is a widespread but little known, recognised or understood phenomenon which still exerts effects today. Within the third joint research programme of HERA (Humanities in the European Research Area) dedicated to “The uses of the past” which started in 2016, this subject is now being studied through several lenses within the MODSCAPES project. MODSCAPES welcomes proposals (full sessions, papers, trainnig/workshop) to its mid-event event, an international conference dedicated to Modernism, modernisation and the rural landscape.

    PhD fellowship for a research project on “Reinventions of modernist rural landscapes”

    Focus: Rural planning in Morocco – 20th century

    MODSCAPES deals with rural landscapes produced by large-scale agricultural development and colonization schemes planned in the 20th century throughout Europe and beyond. Conceived in different political and ideological contexts, such schemes were pivotal to nation-building and state-building policies, and to the modernization of the countryside. They provided a testing ground for the ideas and tools of environmental and social scientists, architects, engineers, planners, landscape architects and artists, which converged around a shared challenge.

    Sustainability of Rural Systems

    Balancing Heritage and Innovation

    Belgium is a highly populated country with a long history of land exploitation. The landscape is modified through human impact, shaped by diverse agricultural practices, early urbanization and industrialization, the exploitation of quarries and mines and the dense development of canals, railways and motorway networks. Nevertheless, rural areas are important because farming activities, increasingly mechanized and technologically based, contribute to economic activity, especially to Belgian exports. Agriculture plays an important role in maintaining open space and offering many services, which may be called agroservices, to the new residents of the countryside and people seeking recreation. Due to this long history and sophisticated technological responses to different issues, Belgium is a suitable place to reflect on sustainability and how to balance cultural and natural heritage and innovation with special reference to the ecological and social dimensions.

    Complex realities and transformations in work in a diversity of farming models

    The international symposium on work in agriculture 2016

    Transformations of farming systems are marked by increasingly important challenges regarding the environment, food safety and competitiveness of enterprises. How do these transformations bring farming work into question? But farming work has also kept a very strong social and territorial dimension: it gives a place and a status to everyone; it nurtures, safeguards and stabilizes a rural population, and strengthens solidarities largely founded on a local cultural relationship with nature and on agriculture and livestock management. The economic, social and environmental functions of farming work coexist. In rural territories, they may sometimes be complementary, but they can also be quite strained.

    Representations of Rurality in Crime Fiction and Media Culture

    Interdisciplinary Approaches to "Setting the Scene"

    The Institute for Collaborative Research in the Humanities at Queen’s University organises a two day Symposium in June 2015  (15 & 16th) as part of its theme of "Creativity in Imagined and Material Worlds". Devoted to representations of the rural,  it will bring together studies in crime fiction and media culture looking at a variety of outlets such as fiction, film, television, comics, games and many others and inspect their various engagements  with the concept of "rurality". Interdisciplinary papers are welcomed, but not contained to, Anthropology, Modern Languages, English, Film and Media Studies, History, Cultural Studies, Historical/Cultural/Rural Geography, Sociology, Spatial Planning. By bringing together an interdisciplinary group we will address how cultural constructions of the rural often ‘set the scene’ for crime fiction.

    Culture(s) in Sustainable Futures

    Theories, practices and policies

    Is culture the fourth pillar of sustainability alongside the ecological, economic and social aspects? How does culture act as a catalyst for ecological sustainability, human well-being and economic viability? What would our futures look like if sustainability was embedded in the multiple dimensions of culture? This landmark conference explores the roles and meanings of culture in sustainable development. The new ideas generated in the conference will inform and advance understandings of sustainability with cultural studies and practices, and vice versa.

    Combining scientific Expertise with Participation: the Challenge of the European Landscape Convention

    The adoption of the European Landscape Convention (ELC) in 2000 represents a major event in taking landscape into account at the European level. As of June 2013, 38 Council of Europe member states have ratified the Convention. By specifying that landscape is an essential component of the quality of life of Europeans, the Convention is, first and foremost, in line with a territorial dimension. Moreover, a strong foundation of the ELC lies in its specific definition of landscape, notably based on the notion of perception by populations. One of the scientists’ major concerns is therefore how to reconcile objective scientific approaches with the subjective aspect of citizens’ perception. After more than a decade of practice, the Conference will be an opportunity for scientists who have been working in line with the ELC to present the tools developed and to reflect on their tangible, measurable and observable effects.

    Rural History 2013

    Rural History 2013 is the first conference held under the auspices of the European Rural History Organisation (EURHO). It is organised by the Swiss Rural History Society (SRHS) and the Archives of Rural History (ARH) in Bern and takes place at the University of Bern from 19-22 August 2013. The main aim of the conference is to provide an overview of the state of the art of rural history today. Another goal is to strengthen the existing networks and co-operation of rural historians and their institutions. The conference will be an excellent occasion for historians to discuss the basic question of what exactly rural history is, how it can be narrated and, crucial for the future development of rural history, how the attractions of rural history in an era of worldwide urbanization can be communicated to the younger generation.
