Como parte de la serie de conferencias del ICCROM: Voces Globales: Patrimonio y Pandemias, llevada a cabo dentro el marco de la iniciativa Patrimonio en Tiempos de COVID, un último seminario virtual en español se centrará en las experiencias vividas en varios países latinoamericanos, incluyendo Chile, Honduras, Guatemala, así como España. Este seminario está dedicado a la audiencia hispanohablante, con especial atención a la región de América Latina, para compartir y discutir los retos actuales, lecciones aprendidas y potenciales soluciones para enfrentarse a la crisis del COVID-19 desde la perspectiva del patrimonio cultural.

La región de América Latina y el Caribe está experimentando actualmente una crecida en el número de casos de COVID, lo que está impactando a la mayoría de los países y sus economías. El sector del patrimonio cultural no está a salvo, e igualmente se está viendo afectado con la clausura de sitios patrimoniales, la cancelación de tradiciones y celebraciones, y la importante repercusión económica sufrida por el sector turismo. Profesionales de distintos países compartirán sus experiencias, discutirán oportunidades invitando a la audiencia a reflexionar sobre sus propias situaciones y retos, y presentarán la red internacional que ofrece recursos informativos, referencias y apoyo, para juntos enfrentar la crisis.

LVII Congreso Nacional de la Sociedad Española de Cerámica y Vidrio, Castellón 26-29 Octubre 2020

El LVII Congreso Nacional de la Sociedad Española de Cerámica y Vidrio tendrá lugar, por primera vez, en la ciudad de Castellón. La importancia de la cerámica industrial en la provincia de Castellón es de sobra conocida por todos. En los alrededores de esta ciudad se concentra la práctica totalidad del sector de fabricación de baldosas cerámicas español, líder europeo y segundo exportador mundial. Se trata pues de la capital de la cerámica y una excelente sede para la organización del congreso. Las actividades tendrán lugar en las instalaciones de la Universitat Jaume I, una universidad joven pero ya perfectamente integrada en la sociedad de Castellón y, por ende, una especial vinculación con el tejido industrial cerámico.

Para flexibilizar la participación a todos los congresistas, sin importar la circunstancia, y sobre todo para mantener la seguridad de todos, hemos creado varias modalidades de inscripción, que van desde la asistencia híbrida, hasta on line, manteniendo la inscripción estándar. Todo el proceso se hará teniendo en cuenta los aforos dentro de las salas y salones, que la UJI ha puesto a plena disposición del congreso. Consulta todas las modalidades de inscripción y tarifas.

Envío de Abstracts hasta el 20 de julio
Notificación de Aceptación el 14 de septiembre

Online seminar: Heritage and Sustainability in Post COVID-19 World – Building Back Better, 2nd July 14:00-15:00 (Rome, Italy)

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to confront critical questions and decisions concerning our future and the role of cultural heritage in it. Looking ahead, the post COVID-19 phase provides an opportunity to ‘build back better’ by rethinking and further strengthening the role of heritage in sustainable development, in line with the UN 2030 agenda. Nevertheless, this will require the heritage sector to reconsider its position and proactively take concrete steps to advance social, environmental, and economic sustainability. The webinar will address this issue, with particular focus on museums and their collections.

Speaker(s):

  • Viviane GOSSELIN, PhD, Director of Collections and Exhibitions at the Museum of Vancouver, Canada. Member of the Advisory Group for the Coalition of Museums for Climate Justice.
  • Sophia LABADI, PhD, Professor of Heritage, University of Kent, UK.
  • Abubakar SULE SANI, PhD, Senior Lecturer, Department of Archaeology, Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria – Nigeria.
  • Errol VAN DE WERDT, drs/MA, Director, TextielMuseum, Tilburg – The Netherlands.

Summer School: Museums and the Sustainable Development Goals, 24-27th August Rotterdam

From Monday 24th to Thursday 27th of August 2020 the Centre for Global Heritage and Development organises a summer school. We will visit different museums to learn what their contribution is to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations. The SDGs are more urgent than ever as the corona crisis has shown how fragile the foundations of our societal structures are. Many governments and organisations are actively working towards the fulfilment of these goals and especially museums have instigated exciting new developments and initiatives.

Each museum has its own approach and priorities, these will be presented and discussed by curators and other museum staff. Participants are also expected to participate actively through critical questions and discussion.

Given the current corona crisis and the lack of hands-on education, this summer school is both a stepping stone to the new academic year, an opportunity to network and of course a unique educational experience that is not offered by existing courses.

Registration is now open! Visit https://www.globalheritage.nl/summer-school-2020-museums-and-sdgs

Location: Leiden, Rotterdam


Webinar: Materials Science for Built Heritage Conservation, 30th June

The webinar is part of «Technical Tuesdays: technical conservation webinars», organized by Historic England’s Technical Conservation Team.

In particular, this webinar will explore the contribution of materials science to the conservation of built heritage. It will explain how scientific techniques carried out in the laboratory or on site can be used to learn more about material composition and causes of decay, and how this can inform repair strategies and specifications. Some of the challenges and limitations to be aware of when commissioning materials science work will be described. An overview of the setup of pilot-sites to assess conservation treatments in historic buildings, and the role of materials science in the development of innovative conservation treatments will also be presented.

Presented by Francesca Gherardi, materials scientist at Historic England, and Alison Henry, Head of Building Conservation & Geospatial Survey at Historic England.

The webinar will take place next Tuesday (30.06.2020).
