The heritage sciences should look to the future rather than to the past
On the 27th of July, the third conference »Heritage as an instrument of connecting the sciences« was organized by Council for development at SAZU. Among others, the head of the program group Heritage on the margins Dr. Špela Ledinek Lozej highlighted the close connection between heritage and social, political, economic and ecological factors. Due to this, there is an urgent need for social sciences and humanities’ understandings and analysis of factors that may affect heritage and heritage-making in the future. She emphasized the need for heritage actors to look to the future rather than to the past and ask ourselves what kind of common futures we wish for. Her presentation and main ideas were subsequently featured in an article on MMC (TV Slovenia web portal).
