March 25, 2009

10th Cambridge Heritage Seminar
The Future of Historic Cities: Challenges, Contradictions, Continuities
18-19 April 2009, University of Cambridge

Keynote Speakers:
Marie Louise Stig Sørensen (University of Cambridge)
Patrick Wright (Nottingham Trent University)
Dennis Rodwell (Independent Architect and Consultant)
John Preston (Cambridge City Council)
Antonio Arantes (Independent Anthropologist)

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?

We are pleased to announce the programme for the 10th Annual Cambridge
Heritage Seminar ‘The Future of Historic Cities: Challenges, Contradictions
and Continuities’, which will take place on 18-19 April 2009, at the
McDonald Institute for Archaeology at Cambridge. The full programme,
including abstracts and the registration form, can be found at

Registration has been extended to April 1, 2009; for any further queries,
please contact Shadia Taha at
