Full paper submission deadline extended

Dear Colleagues,

I am writing on behalf of Professor Mike Robinson regarding the deadline to submit full papers for the conference proceedings for Heritages of Migration: Moving Stories, Objects and Home. After several requests from colleagues that attended the conference, we are pleased to let you know that the deadline to submit your full paper is now 31st August 2017. (If you have already submitted your paper, thank you for doing so. No further action is required at this stage.)

We accept papers in English and Spanish, and all papers that are received will be included in the official CD of conference proceedings, which will be mailed to attendees after the August deadline.

Several colleagues have also asked whether there will be a publication from the conference. At this stage, we are aiming to attract a critical mass of full papers. Once we have received all papers, we will have the opportunity to read through them and identify the options for producing a volume or special edition journal. More news on this as we begin to read through the full papers!

To submit your full paper please follow this link: https://universityofbirmingham.submittable.com/submit/84920/heritages-of-migration-full-paper-submissions

Next Conference

I would also like to take this opportunity to let you know about our next conference “Communicating World Heritage” which will take place at the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site, UK from 7-10 October 2017. This conference is a special international meeting jointly organised by the Ironbridge International Institute for Cultural Heritage and World Heritage UK. The first two days 7-8 October will bring together academics from around the world to discuss research and global policy focusing on the communication of World Heritage values. From 9-10 October, practitioners will join to explore the many ways to communicate World Heritage to a variety of audiences.

To see the programme, and book your tickets (early bird deadline is 31 August), please visit our conference website at: www.communicatingworldheritage.wordpress.com

Many thanks!

Kind regards

Hannah Stretton
