Collective Intelligence in Cultural Environment: Predictive Models, preservation and valorization of Cultural Identity in a Brazilian context (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Erika Robrahn Gonzalez.

The current days are becoming more and more demanding for researches on social sciences, considering the great changes happening globally on the last decades, changes that seem to be happening always on a faster pace than before. Many international institutions, including UNESCO, have been promoting discussions intended to bring new ideas on the role of Humanities on the current society, this from the standpoint of a global perspective. This challenge is also about the integration of knowledge,...


Empowering Tribal Youth in Cultural Heritage Management (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only David Guilfoyle. Genevieve Carey. Raven Willoya-Williams. Michael Bernard. Sherry Kime.

We examine a multi-year cultural heritage training program developed by Elders, youth and archaeologists in the Kenai Peninsula of Alaska. The program aims to embed cultural protocols and knowledge into methods of cultural heritage management (CHM). The program demonstrates the benefits of collaborative approaches that provide the foundation for more effective CHM, while at the same time providing direct social outcomes. We examine how this was established via a case study of one of the...


Exploring 'Helicopter' Consulting (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only James Herbert. Sean Connuaghton.

Large-scale cultural resource management on the Northwest Coast stands at the crossroads among resource development, for-profit resource management, and Indigenous control and consent. Recent legal cases, specifically in British Columbia, highlight the need for consultants, industry and Indigenous governments to plan for future development together. This paper follows a line of inquiry from our previous work, exploring how the ‘fly in, fly out’ nature of consulting practices alienates...


History and Prehistory of the Panama Canal Zone Revealed by the Current Canal Expansion Program (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Emlen Myers. Tomas Mendizabal.

A wide array of archaeological resources has been identified by the Panama Canal Expansion, a civil construction effort that began in 2008 and will end late in 2015. Over 40 separate cultural resource studies have been contracted by the Panama Canal Authority since the start of the project. Located at the narrowest point of the Central American isthmus, the project area has been an environmentally rich and strategically important location since Pre-Hispanic times. Pre-construction survey and...


Impressions, Itineraries And Perceptions of a Coastscape: The Case of Medieval Paphos (12th-16th Century CE) (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Maria Ktori.

Previous research has established the dynamic relationship between humans and their environment. Based on Westerdahl's seminal theory regarding the maritime landscape, this relationship becomes more intense and complex in a coastal setting. This paper presents the case of Paphos, a harbour town in west Cyprus, during the Lusignan period (1192-1474/89) and the Venetian period (1474/89-1570/71). Travelling literature provides us with impressions, perceptions and the travellers' itineraries from...


Inclusive Heritage: Learning from Urban Art in Berlin (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Genevieve Godin.

Alternative, subcultural, or otherwise non-mainstream forms of heritage are increasingly being recognized, both in the social imaginary and in the discipline. Such moments provide archaeologists with opportunities for actively working towards a more inclusive and diversified heritage practice. Specifically, my work explores the potential of urban art walking tours and workshops in the borough of Kreuzberg (Berlin, Germany) from a contemporary archaeological standpoint. As tour guides present...


Indigenous Perspectives On Cultural Heritage Management And Preservation (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Nicole Raslich.

Cultural Heritage Management has various perceptions when utilized by indigenous communities and archaeologists. Heritage management professionals advocate preserving sites from looters, limiting access to curb erosion and protecting historical places from the degradation of time. Preservation methods may include stopping traditional uses of these locations unless otherwise specified through legislation. Most often, sites are located and archived through historical and archaeological research....


Readdressing Conservation In Situ: New Theoretical and Methodological Approaches to Underwater Cultural Heritage Management (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Charles D Bendig. Nicholas C. Budsberg.

Protecting cultural heritage and disseminating archaeological research are two of the primary tenets of archaeology.  Protocols, such as the 2001 UNESCO Convention, emphasize monitoring sites over excavation and conservation because of the financial constraints and labor involved, as well as the physical space needed to treat, store, and display collections.  However, no concise field standards exist, few clear directives are offered, and as a result, the application of appropriate conservation...

The creation of an exportable indigenous heritage management program for developing nations responds to a growing concern about the rapid effects of globalization and industrialization on the natural and cultural landscape. In 2010 an international partnership was formed between the Mongolian Institute of Archaeology, Denver Zoo, Anza-Borrego Foundation, and California State Parks with the goal of establishing a cultural heritage management program in the Ikh Nart Nature Reserve in the Northern...
