REMINDER: CfPapers (extended deadline: 10 July 2021) - Panel “Heritage, an educational challenge for world citizens” at the IUAES 2021 WORLD CONGRESS
Dear colleagues of the VISUAL ANTHROPOLOGY NETWORK
There is still time to join us online in our panel!
Let's explore together the global threats of Anthropocene: loss of biodiversity, global warming, cultural and productive changes, extinction of indigenous languages, disregard for practices and knowledge... How can education help us to deal with all this?
We warmly invite papers from anthropologists, interdisciplinary researchers, educators and educational communicators to focus on heritage(s) in formal, informal and public education, exploring past, present and potential future possibilities.
*T*he call for papers closes on 10 July 2021.

Panel 56 Long Abstract
The educational challenge related to different heritages concerns not only specialists but every citizen. It therefore requires the consolidation of educational networks in many contexts, from the local to the global level, in teaching and learning anthropology in the broadest sense, in order to become world citizens.
This undoubtedly refers to the academic context, but, in a logic of educational continuity and life-long learning, refers also and above all to what happens outside the universities, in schools of all levels, in an audience of all ages and non-professionals to reach.
We invite to reflect and debate together on the following issues:
- How to form a new educational dialogue on heritage taking into account the problems that have arisen during the Anthropocene?
Can education in a wide sense help to give value and life to the different types of heritage in a community? Can it help us face global threats such as loss of biodiversity, global warming, cultural and productive changes, extinction of indigenous languages, disregard for practices and knowledge?
- How do anthropologists contribute to educational reflection while analysing the complexity of the world today?
We will consider different heritages, where many topics are articulated in complex, often conflicting ways at different levels.
We will not only talk about institutionally recognized heritage, but also about the one which local communities themselves recognize as essential to strengthen identity and social cohesion.
- How are relations and exchanges developed in order to build a citizenship at different levels?
Local, regional, national and global issues are strictly connected. It’s important to develop new relations in order to face together the global challenges of contemporary social and environmental degradation, including the recent pandemic effects. Can a multi level citizenship help also to understand the interrelationships between environment, food, culture, human health and well-being?
- How does anthropology intervene to apply its knowledge and expertise to multiple fields? How does it relate to other sciences to address the same problem?
Interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches are essential to understand and problematise the concepts of culture, identity and nature in order to confront the knowledge and views of the sciences. Are these approaches also essential to treat other topics, like different types of heritage: natural, bio-cultural, tangible, intangible, industrial and post-industrial, for example?
- What methods and tools do you want to emphasize?
What teaching and learning methods are used in schools? What role does fieldwork play? What international skills do students need? What kind of teacher-training pathways should be developed? Do specialists write for public audiences? What opportunities exist for the general public? What findings come from the field of educational research?
What didactic tools can be used? Technological tools, museum tours, library projects, theatrical performances, music, art, media, adoption of monuments, games...
With the above in mind, we warmly invite papers from anthropologists, interdisciplinary researchers, educators and educational communicators to focus on heritage(s) in formal, informal and public education, exploring past, present and potential future possibilities.
