The Canada Research Chair in Urban Heritage of Université du Québec à Montréal, in collaboration with the Association québécoise pour le patrimoine industriel (Quebec association for industrial heritage) and with the support of Tourisme Montréal, will be hosting the 2021 TICCIH Congress in Montreal, from August 30th to September 4th, 2021.
In order to enrich scientific discussions, to promote the discovery of Montreal’s urban and cultural environment and its particular challenges in the field of heritage, and to support new partnership in research and training, the five days of the conference include numerous activities of inquiry and dialogue in various areas linked to industrial heritage, as architecture, urban planning, gastronomy, music, cinema, etc. Well-known guest speakers will also be heard.
The 2021 TICCIH congress in Montreal is designed to perpetuate and renew research and exchanges on less-discussed areas of industrial heritage, by addressing the identity of industrial civilization from the angle of its representations, culture, territories, of its inheritance (positive or negative) and of their documentation and development.
The deadline for the call for sessions and papers is January 31st 2020.
The Congress will enthusiastically welcome especially those proposals of research or intervention on industrial heritage that will bring to discussion the following topics:
- Functional or symbolic requalification
- Belonging and social acceptability
- Social engagement with the scientific discourse
- Memory and people’s participation
- Sustainable development
- Uses and aims of heritage
