1. Multi-Layered heritage
In anticipation of the World Heritage Youth Forum 2016: At the Crossroads of Multi-Layered Heritage which will take place in Istanbul, prior to the 40thSession of the World Heritage Committee, we are looking for articles corresponding to this general theme. Multi-layered heritage can be interpreted in multiple ways. It can refer to cultural or natural heritage sites that exhibit traces dating back from numerous historic periods. Moreover, it can describe heritage which features multiple architectural structures or it can denote the management process of heritage that belongs to manifold stakeholders. Share with us your personal take on the concept of multi-layered heritage, your understanding of the management and conservation strategies needed to protect these heritage sites or let us know your stories and experiences with this unique kind of heritage.
2. Heritage in Conflict
Our second theme, Heritage in Conflict, is inspired by the Unite4Heritage Campaign, launched by UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova during the 39th Session of the World Heritage Committee, as an active response to the deliberate destruction of World Heritage Sites. As a global movement for the celebration and safeguarding of cultural heritage and diversity worldwide, it calls on the international heritage community to rise against extremism and radicalization. Now we want to know your academic opinions, experiences and solutions to this relevant topic. We are looking for articles that explore the current discourse around heritage in conflict, describe interesting case studies, or delve into other corresponding sub-themes, such as cultural diversity education and tolerance; illicit trafficking of cultural objects or safeguarding of built heritage and intangible cultural expressions.
