In Situ. Revue des patrimoines journal – Heritage values of 20th century architecture: what recognition?: call for papers | deadline 15 December 2020
CALL FOR PAPERS — Heritage values of 20th century architecture: what recognition? Critical review and international forward-looking vision
The journal In Situ. Revue des patrimoines offers heritage professionals and researchers the opportunity to disseminate and promote the results of their work on the knowledge, conservation and transmission of works and objects for which they are responsible or which they are studying. Its ambition is to promote exchanges between the different players and between the many disciplines that make up the heritage sciences. It makes the knowledge thus produced available to the public.
The heritage values of 20th century architecture, whether they be cultural, social or technical, remain relatively complex to assess, and thus to share, due to lack of perspective and knowledge. The architectural and urban production of the second half of the 20th century was particularly prolific, sometimes remarkable, even exceptional.
The energy, ecological transition, the changing habits and lifestyles are leading to the gradual transformation of this built heritage reaching to the end of its life cycle.
Today, many countries with a post-industrial economy are confronted with the challenge to bring about changes in these buildings and neighbourhoods in order to meet the increasing social demand, without compromising their original architectural interest and qualities.
For more information, visit the In Situ. Revue des patrimoines website.
If you would like to contribute to this issue, we thank you for sending us by 15 December 2020 a summary of your proposal with a maximum of 1,500 characters.
Call for Articles: Heritage Special Issue “Smart Heritage: Converging Smart Technologies and Heritage” | see note re: deadline
Smart technology and artificial intelligence are expanding into novel research and practical fields to create innovative solutions for society. Next in this evolutionary expansion is the heritage discipline, from which the convergence forms the unique Smart Heritage discourse. Smart Heritage is the convergence of autonomous and automatic technologies with the subjective processes associated with interpreting and valuing the past.
This Special Issue of Heritage (ISSN 2571-9408) provides a platform for examining, investigating, and proposing the convergence of smart technology and artificial intelligence with the heritage discipline. The issue welcomes contributors to explore this convergence in the areas of heritage, digital information technology and computing, museum studies, architecture, governance and policy, and urban planning.
Guest Editors: Prof. Dr. Marc Aurel Schnabel, Mr. David Batchelor, Dr. Michael Dudding; Victoria University of Wellington
