Heritage Alliance of the New Silk Road [HANSR] 5th workshop "Heritage: Mobility and migration, past and present"

Activity: Participating in eventParticipation in workshop, seminar


The 2022 session, "Heritage: mobility and migration, past and present" will focus on the tensions that exist in historical perspective between population movement and stasis for building and maintaining tangible and intangible cultural heritage.

While the Silk Roads of the past and present symbolize a deep history of interconnectivity, movement, and cross-cultural interaction throughout Eurasia, the COVID pandemic has brought unforeseen impediments to mobility, physical investments in place-making and community building in this region. Simultaneously, the need for rapid evacuation and relocation of millions of people into new and unfamiliar territories have arisen due to political conflict and war (e.g., such as in Ukraine, Afghanistan, Armenia, Russia, and Kashmir). The 2022 HANSR conference will examine the various challenges, solutions, and traditions fostered around the inextricably linked factors of heritage and mobility.
