CFP: Handbook of Heritage Law and Discourse

Call for papers for an edited Volume

Handbook of Heritage Law and Discourse. A Triadic Dimension: Protection, Regulation and Identity

Editors: Le Cheng and Anne Wagner. Publisher: Springer.
Deadline: Feb 28, 2019

The past four decades has witnessed the remarkable extension of enthusiasm in cultural heritage or property from the perspective of international laws, or international legal framework as the multilevel legal instruments for safeguarding, protection and maintenance of cultural heritage, property, or rights. In our project, the identification of “Heritage” employs specific discourses, codes, transcending values, and images that conceal assumption about members of a people comprising a people within a nation. Heritage narrates constructions of belongings that become tethered to negotiations for power and resistance over time and throughout a people’s history leading to powerful discursive narratives. While such likeness may be preserved, conserved or even perpetuated, the idea of “Heritage” may be socially, politically, culturally, and historically contested to reveal competing pasts, presents, and futures, esp. with innovation in arts leading to new social norms and identities.

CONF: Transport, assurance, importation, exportation, ports francs (Geneva, 22 Nov, 17)

The art market continues to grow and internationalize. Thus, the transactions of art markets generally cross the borders of countries. Behind the scenes of this market, a large number of actors are operating. They provide for transportation, storage and insurance of works of art.

This conference aims to examine
the contractual aspects of these operations and the responsibility of its actors.
In addition, it is interested in the new governance of the free ports of Geneva, the import and export of works of art as well as the customs procedures and operations.
