Throughout the project, the Researcher (Liz Robson) will be participating in a range of related activities. Below is a summary of some past and up-coming events:
Scotland’s Community Heritage Conference, Stirling
On Saturday 10th November, Liz attended this conference and hosted a discussion session on assessing social value from 13:00-13:30 in the Engine Shed ‘snug’.
Joint submission with Siân Jones to the Built Environment Forum Scotland Consultation on Prioritisation within Built Heritage
In early September, Liz joined other University of Stirling delegates in Hangzhou for the the IV Biennial Association of Critical Heritage Studies Conference. Prior to attending, she contributed to a ‘provocation’, co-authored with her supervisor, Siân Jones, titled Multiple methods and diverse objects: challenges in the creation of a social value ‘toolkit’ for heritage management and conservation. The paper took as an immediate reference point this collaborative doctoral project and was delivered by Professor Jones as part of session 101: Toolkits Across Borders. Liz was able to join the panel for the subsequent discussion portion of the session to answer questions about the project.
Learning From Loss Programme Field Trip, Scotland
For 12 days in June, Liz joined an international team of researchers and practitioners for a series of community meetings and site visits that stretched from Edinburgh in the South to Sanday Island, Orkney in the North. The project was looking at transformation of the historic environment in the face of climate change and asking questions about significance, prioritisation, and the processes of change and loss. As well as tweeting about the trip (#LearningfromLoss), Liz and University of Stirling Post-Doc Qian Gao, co-wrote the following blog reflecting on their experience:
