Landscape & Heritage: Between Nature and Culture

Decorrerá, no dia 07 de Junho de 2019, na Universidade de Évora, o Workshop dedicado ao tema "Landscape & Heritage: Between Nature and Culture". 

From arts and cultural geography to anthropology, landscape planning and history, landscape emerged as a powerful category in different areas of scientific inquiry. Amidst the scholarship’s shift towards a re-thinking definition of heritage and pondering the emerging idea of intangible natural heritage, the workshop seeks to re - examine these changing historical concepts that embody dualism of nature and culture. Marrying theoretical approaches with practice, the discussion will explore the implications of the agency of power for both the understanding of heritage and humans’ relationship with the environment. At the same time, it will look into the ways in which the study of landscape influences and informs heritage conservation today, and vice versa.

The event is organized within Nevena Tatovic's PhD project "Hearing Holy Landscapes: Heritage of Silence – Intangibility between Nature and Culture" in the framework of FCT_HERITAS doctoral programme (PD/BI/142867/2018), with a support of CIDEHUS - Interdisciplinary Center for History, Cultures and Societies and UNESCO Chair in Intangible Heritage and Traditional Know-How: Linking Heritage.
