Registration closed on 10 May.

From 19 to 21 October, Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne University had planned to host the Una Europa PhD Workshop “Heritage Hybridisation: Concepts, Scales and Spaces”. While the physical workshop will be postponed to Spring 2021 due to Covid-19, remote collaboration is underway and a series of open virtual events is in the pipeline, starting with an open online lecture by Noémie Etienne.

This PhD Workshop aims to bring together PhD students and researchers from all Una Europa universities, offering PhD students insights from different schools of thought. The concept of heritage hybridisation enables us to focus on the interconnection of different domains, period and actors that jointly shape our cultural heritage. The workshop will address the concept from five angles:

  1. Political, transnational and community negotiations and heritage hybridisation
  2. Hybridisations of heritage narratives
  3. Heritage(s) between high and popular culture
  4. Heritage rescaling and hybridisations
  5. Hybridisation of heritage concepts and doctrines

The 3-day workshop will consist of parallel and plenary sessions, visits, fieldwork, as well as meetings with museums, archives, heritage societies, philanthropists and charities, ministries, NGOs, enterprises, specialized media, stakeholders in public history, archaeology, intangible heritage and heritage businesses.

Applicants need to be enrolled at one of the 8 partner universities, in the 2nd year of doctoral studies or higher. Their doctoral studies should be thematically related to Cultural Heritage and to the Workshop’s theme. Browse the workshop website for a detailed description of the application and selection process.

This Cultural Heritage PhD Workshop is one of the “Joint Innovative Formats” foreseen by Una Europa’s 1Europe project. Its goal is to experiment with innovative approaches to doctoral education and to contribute to a future Joint PhD on Cultural Heritage offered by the Una Europa Universities.
