Arts and Humanities Research Council

The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) is pleased to be participating in the 5th Biennial Conference of the Association of Critical Heritage Studies (ACHS). AHRC has identified heritage as one of its Priority Areas and has provided leadership and support for the continued development of heritage research as a vibrant, innovative, highly collaborative, cross-disciplinary and international research field. AHRC Heritage award holders have the opportunity to showcase their research at the conference in the form of a virtual poster, and AHRC will also deliver a presentation and will take part in a live Q&A on Wednesday 26 August at 1.30pm on the ACHS Stage.

Centre for Critical Heritage Studies (CCHS)

Centre for Critical Heritage Studies is a partnership between University of Gothenburg (UGOT) and University College London (UCL), and it operates as an inter-faculty research centre.  We are devoted to critical and interdisciplinary studies of the many layers of cultural heritage as a material, intangible, emotional and intellectual field. We aim to lead the way in defining a new field of critical heritage studies which identifies and interprets evolving, multi-scalar forms of heritage and identity, issues of heritage justice and heritage futures.

Catch up with CCHS at the conference on Wednesday at 1.30pm on the Live Stage and see what CCHS presentations there are at AHCS 2020 here.
