New Date: Hacking Heritage Unconference

John Nicholas Brown Center for Public Humanities and Cultural Heritage

Rescheduled from March 2.

What we choose to preserve often tells us more about what we value in the present than it does about our past. That’s why conversations about what to preserve and what to demolish — what to archive and what to throw out — are so fierce. We can’t save everything, can we? So what shall we save? Who gets to make these decisions? How does this effect you, your family, your community, your neighborhood, your city, your state, your country and our world?

Third Annual Hacking Heritage Unconference

Pembroke Hall, Room 305

Heritage. Who owns It? How do we use it? How do we change it?

Hacking Heritage, now in its third iteration, invites questions and conversations about how and why we protect, interpret, manage and market our cultural heritage that may be uncomfortable, provocative, critical, or, as one of our steering committee members put it, just plain weird. It is a place to gather and talk together about things like experimental preservation, marginalized stories, historic houses, monuments, sites of conscience and digital heritage.
