Please consider registering for the Cultural Landscapes and Heritage Values: Embracing Change in the Management of Place conference taking place at UMass Amherst from May 13-15, 2015. According to the conference website>>, “The themes of the conference emphasize the need to acknowledge and engage change in the successful interpretation, conservation, and management of landscapes; the often unproductive dichotomy of “natural” and “cultural” resources; the factors of social and economic inequality inherent in the designation and management of living landscapes; and other critical issues in heritage studies today that are raised and provoked by cultural landscape research and conservation.”
