CALL FOR BOOK CHAPTERS - Re-imagining Bengal: Architecture, built environment and cultural heritage - Deadline: 31 February 2016
Editors: Dr. Iftekhar Ahmed and Dr. Mohammad Habib Reza
Bengal is remarkably ancient and its contemporary features are also rich and diversified. They present us with a rich palimpsest of layers of history with deep rooted imprints of Hindu, Buddhist and Islamic culture, which range from the heart of older parts of traditional city enclaves to remote rural places. They carry the tangible and intangible elements of Bengal society and sustain local identity and culture. The local built environment, having both tangible and intangible cultural qualities, often without being one or the other, is not simple to define or capture. It is not linear and embodies multiple issues and elements. Local cultural heritage is not static; it is inherited as an element to be passed on through subsequent generations. It may be the cultural legacy, and continuity inherited in time that incorporates the identity of place and people from past into the present in a perpetual process that evolves with time and embodies local tradition, knowledge and value…

When Cultural Policies Change: Comparing Mexico and Argentina
The ENCATC Book Series on Cultural Management and Cultural Policy Education is published by P.I.E. Peter Lang
ISBN 978-2-87574-309-1
Published: 2015
How can change in cultural policy be explained? Through a comparative and historical analysis this research sheds new light on the emergence, institutionalization and transformation of the cultural policies of two major Latin American countries: Mexico and Argentina. Author Elodie Bordat-Chauvin, winner of the 2014 ENCATC Research Award, has published her investigation based on the material gathered in the ethnographic fieldwork conducted between 2008 and 2010. The work challenges the common assumptions that Mexican cultural policy is characterized by inertia and Argentinean cultural policy by instability. It analyses factors of change and their consequences including reductions in cultural budgets, transformations in cultural industries and modifications in the balance of power between national, subnational, public and private actors.

European guidelines for wine cultural landscape preservation and enhancement: with special regard to endangered areas and vineyards
ICOMOS Open Archive
Published: 2015
Results of the VITOUR Landscape European project (2010-2012), involving 10 European vineyards inscribed on the WOrld Heritage List. "The cultural landscapes we are dealing with are different in history, economic and demographic structures, and they are ruled differently according to the various institutions which are in charge of their protection and enhancement. Different also are the laws and regulations – national and international - which should provide for this item. Taking all these differences into account, there is a very strong link between the cultural landscapes we propose as an example of good practices in our guidelines: they are all World Heritage sites. Our intention is to present the case of our sites as an open laboratory of experiments in good practices, still in progress, useful for other protected and / or endangered sites." The ViTour Landscape project and its partners (Giuliana Biagioli)
