The Center for Cultural Affairs is pleased to present the second CCA biennial research conference. This year’s conference titled Cultural Policy Beyond the Here and Now: What do we owe to Future Generations? addresses cultural policy, specifically on the theme of policies that promote the preservation of culture and the arts for future generations. While the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has established protocols for the preservation of Intangible Cultural Heritage, how choices are made in terms of what most calls for preservation, the means by which this is achieved, and the decision-making processes, all warrant further study, in addition to how these principles are, explicitly or implicitly, adopted in national cultural policy.
Our conference brings together a group of international scholars from across disciplines to present research and scholarship in panel sessions. We will also host roundtables to discuss the conference theme, including a roundtable in partnership with the Cultural Research Network (CRN).
