Pacific Island Archaeology in the 21st Century: Relevance and Engagement Koror, Palau, 1-3 July, 2009
The conference - Pacific Island Archaeology in the 21st Century:
Relevance and Engagement - examines how natural and cultural heritage studies and archaeology are relevant to the sociopolitical, economic, and environmental challenges facing contemporary and future societies in Pacific islands. How can knowledge of the past inform current perceptions, decisions, and actions of local communities in relation to their heritage? How do these connections encourage the engagement of researchers with the local community and of the indigenous community with heritage investigations?
Academics, governmental agencies, indigenous groups, and cultural resource professionals are encouraged to present critical discussions regarding the potential significance and contribution of heritage to the resolution of contemporary issues and practical methods for encouraging and developing opportunities for community-based cultural heritage preservation and management.
