Migration and Heritage - Call for paper

What is the role of archaeology, museums and heritage management in a world of migration? How can archaeology and heritage studies contribute to how societies define themselves, now and in the future? How will heritage shaped from an immigrant perspective contribute in defining societies?

These are some of the questions which will be raised at the session “Archaeology and heritage in changing societies – approaches to present and future disciplinary significance for citizens of the 21st century” arranged by Christopher Prescott (University of Oslo / Norway), Anders Högberg (Linnaeus University / Sweden) and Torgrim Sneve Guttormsen (Norwegian Institute for Cultural Heritage Research / Norway) on WAC-8 (World Archaeological Congress) in Kyoto in august 2016.
