In particular, keep an eye out for news from World Heritage UK who will be announcing a fantastic line up of speakers for their annual conference (9th & 10th October), which takes place as part of the joint event.
We can announce, though, that all four of our Workshops on the 7th and the 8th of October have confirmed their full line-ups with papers exploring everything from Orkney to the communities of Kenya and Timbuktu. Sites and landscapes up for discussion include the mining regions of the Erzgebirge/Krušnohoří and Blaenavon, the cathedral city of Durham, the mudflats and sands of the Wadden Sea and many more. Thank you to everyone who responded to our Call for Papers, there were lots of fantastic submissions that helped us put together a programme with speakers from across the world and a fantastic range of topics.
