10th Annual Cambridge Heritage Seminar

February 23, 2009

THE FUTURE OF HISTORIC CITIES: CHALLENGES, CONTRADICTIONS, CONTINUITIES
18-19 APRIL 2009, UNIVERSITY OF CAMBRIDGE

For its tenth anniversary in 2009, coinciding with the celebration of the 800th anniversary of the founding of the University of Cambridge, the Cambridge Heritage Seminar will focus on cultural heritage, architecture,
and the built environment in the context of a rapidly globalising and modernising world. Taking historic cities as its departure point, the seminar asks: how can urban cultural landscapes be preserved and sustained,
challenged as they are by development, legislation, and commodification — and what are the reasons for and outcomes of such preservation?

To be held at the McDonald Institute for Archaeology at Cambridge. Further information, including abstracts and the registration form, can be found at http://www.arch.cam.ac.uk/heritage-seminar/chs09/. Please note
that registration closes on 13 March 2009. For registration or any further queries, please contact Shadia Taha at st446@cam.ac.uk.
