The Research Center of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts and the Institute of Slovenian Ethnology announces the meeting of the International Society of Ethnology and Folklore (SIEF)’s Working Group of Cultural Heritage and Property: Border and Boundaries in/of Heritages. It will be held at Ljubljana, Slovenia on April 1–3, 2020.

This conference invites reflections on the mutually constitutive interplay between boundaries, borders and heritage as a metacultural process. Boundaries, borders, limits and divisions and their multiplicative effects can be focal points of transition, encounter and conflict. They include territorial boundaries (between settlements, regions, countries); borders that mark identity at the level of local, ethnic, national or religious communities; administrative boundaries that delimit matters linked to the definition, legitimization and regulation of heritage; and classificatory boundaries, which mark distinctions between tangible and intangible heritage, between natural and cultural heritage, between laymen and experts.

The meeting of SIEF’s Working Group of Space-Lore and Place-Lore will be occurring at the same place from March 30–1, 2020. Guests are welcomed to register for both conferences. See the AFS Review for the call for proposals for this meeting.

For more information on the meeting, see Border and Boundaries in/of Heritages.

Proposals to present at this conference are being accepted until January 31, 2020. See the AFS Review for more information.
