The International Journal of Intangible Heritage (IJIH) will host an online celebration to commemorate the fifteenth year of its founding, along with the launch of its fifteenth volume. The celebration will take place in a two-part webinar series, held on July 15 and 16.
COVID-19 restrictions mean that while this year’s Journal could not be launched at the ICOM Annual Meeting in Paris as is tradition, this virtual launch in the form of a webinar series, will enable the Journal to involve many more people in an event that will bring together authors and book reviewers, practitioners and professionals, individuals and institutions, all of whom have been instrumental in the production of the IJIH over its 15 years of existence.

Participants in the two webinars, all authors in Vol.15, are being invited to address one the two main themes emerging in this year’s Journal: Museums and Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH). Topics and themes presented in this issue include: perspectives, policy making and practice, and Identity and Meaning: Traditional knowledge and Traditional craftsmanship.These themes are examined in articles and book reviews that interrogate a wide range of issues such as safeguarding methodologies, the interface between living heritage and museum practice, techniques for reconstructing the past, remembering traditional foods, archival methods of recording traditional craftsmanship, the evolution and preservation of traditional practice in religious contexts and secular occupations, and the intersection between site-based heritage and intangible heritage.
