"Cultural Heritage: Ethics, Politics and Value" Workshop
Lunch and refreshments will be provided. Detailed information about the schedule will be provided in due course. Registration Deadline: Wednesday April 10 at 10am.
April 17-18, 2024, All Souls College, Old Library

Cultural heritage has a myriad of interesting and important philosophical dimensions. Its questions pick up on themes about value and the conservation of value; collective memory and our relation to the past; global justice and nationalism; aesthetics and the weight of aesthetic considerations in relation to other ethical questions. As many societies are confronting their histories of war, empire and colonialism, heritage is also emerging as a particularly challenging dimension of social justice.

Professor Cécile Fabre and Professor Christine Sypnowich are organising a workshop on some dimensions of the ethics and politics of cultural heritage, around the following topics:
a. Heritage and human flourishing
b. Heritage and justice
c. Heritage and commemoration
d. Heritage and the legacy of colonialism
e. Heritage and war
