English Brown Bag Lecture: Investigating Heritage Futures

Location: CC301

The Heritage Futures project is an international, interdisciplinary 4-year research program (2015-2019) funded by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council. Three Heritage Futures researchers will initiate a discussion of how the future is perceived in different ways in relation to cultural perceptions of the land. "Heritage is often said to be the human legacy for the benefit of future generations. A major challenge to this logic lies in how to overcome the future's inherent uncertainty" (www.heritage-futures.org).

Cornelius Holtorf is Professor of Archaeology and Director of the Graduate School in Contract Archaeology at Linnaeus University, Sweden. He is a Co-Investigator of the Heritage Futures project. His current research interests include heritage theory, time traveling and contemporary archaeology.

Sarah May is a research associate on the Heritage Futures project based at the Institute of Archaeology at University College London. Her research for the project examines how World Heritage Site designation, nuclear waste management and deep space message make futures in the English Lake District.

Antony Lyons is an independent artist-researcher with a background in eco/geo-sciences and landscape studies currently working as Creative Fellow on the Heritage Futures project. His work is concerned with relationships between ecological processes, environmental change, social adaptations and contemporary narratives.

Refreshments will be served. This event is open to the public.
