The Future of Historic Cities: Challenges, Contradictions, Continuities

March, 2009 · Written by: John Tierney Print This Page This entry is part 14 of 34 in the Issue 01

The 10th Cambridge Heritage Seminar (CHS10) focuses on the preservation
of historic cities and the built environment. It asks: how can cultural
and natural landscapes be sustained in a rapidly globalising world?
How can professionals involved in heritage practice deal with the challenges
of modernity without the risk of losing cultural uniqueness and diversity?

Contributions from researchers and policymakers addressing the above and
related questions are welcome for the 2009 seminar, which is to be held in April 2009.
The theme of this seminar coincides with the celebration of the 800th anniversary
of the University of Cambridge, and marks also the ten-year anniversary of an
interdisciplinary discussion group whose exchange of ideas, questions,
and case studies in cultural heritage studies has given rise to new and
innovative perspectives and approaches to understanding the past.
