Overview

Montalegre,

ECOMUSEUMS 2014
- 2nd International Conference on Ecomuseums, Community Museums and Living
Communities
follows the
path established by its first conference and (as the predecessor) aims at
gathering scholars, academics and practitioners working in the areas of
Ecomuseums and Community Museums all over the world in an event that may
contribute to the global discussion and understanding of the ecomuseums
and community museums phenomena.

The ecomuseum movement has its origins
in late 1960’s France when the roles museums can play in linking people,
their heritage expressions and places, as well as affecting social change,
were examined. At this time, traditional museum activities, which centered
on the collection of heritage to be interpreted by curators and other
museum professionals within a museum building, were viewed as both limited
and exclusive in approach.
In more recent decades, ecomuseums have been
established throughout the world and are guided by a variety of differing
aims and objectives. For example, an ecomuseum may resemble a more
conventional museum in appearance or, in other cases, an open–air
community-controlled heritage project, depending on the place.

It can
be considered that this wide range of ecomuseological and community-based
museological initiatives demonstrates an international interest in
alternative heritage management approaches. For this reason, Ecomuseums
2012 seeks to bring together scholars, researchers, architects and
heritage professionals to discuss the commonalities, differences and
future of safeguarding practices that are holistic and community oriented
in scope.
As in the previous edition Early Stage Researchers are
welcome to share the results of their research projects, namely
post-graduation projects and doctoral projects among others. Special
registration conditions are previewed for their best contributions, under
the Scientific Committee evaluation.

ECOMUSEUMS 2014
