Date: 10/12/2012 - 10/14/2012

Type: Educational Opportunities

Location(s): New Jersey

Description:

Cultural Landscapes: Preservation Challenges in the 21st Century will bring together leading scholars and practitioners from around the world to examine five core themes around the concept, implementation, and management of cultural landscapes and historic urban landscapes. The conference will provide an interdisciplinary forum for forward-looking approaches to 21stcentury challenges, with the objective of mapping strategies for a 10-year plan of action within these areas. Participants will present papers that will be revised, edited, and combined with six significant case studies and commentaries for publication. The conference provides a unique opportunity in time and place for the United States to reaffirm its presence within the international arena of cultural heritage preservation. Cultural landscapes and historic urban landscapes are at the nexus of current efforts in the United States to address our diverse cultural heritage and to revitalize the livability of the nation’s communities through preservation of the authentic sense of place. Rutgers University, founded in 1766 and New Jersey’s land-grant institution, is an ideal setting for the exploration of these issues.
