Changing Visions, Attitudes, and Contexts in the 21st Century will provide a unique global forum for sharing predictions, projections, and warnings about how the field of heritage will look in the coming decades.
As in previous years, we look forward to hosting a wide range of scholars, heritage professionals, educators, and community leaders for two and a half days of stimulating discussions, workshops, and reflections on the current and future state of heritage.
Plenary speakers for this year’s colloquium will include:

on the Transformation of Tradition in the Developed and Developing Worlds
Gilles Nourissier (Ecole d’Avignon, France)
on New Policy Challenges for Heritage Administration

on Emerging Technologies of Conservation
Maurizio Forte (Italian National Research Council)
on the Future of Virtual Heritage

Both the plenary sessions and specialized workshops will focus on the colloquium’s major themes:
