This interdisciplinary workshop “Conventions and International Recommendations on Cultural Heritage. Social Effect and Practices of Opportunity” (Conventions et recommandations internationales sur le patrimoine culturel. Effets sociaux et pratiques d’opportunité) on 14 January 2019 at the University of Cergy Pontoise, a member of ENCATC, is devoted to international conventions and recommendations on cultural heritage.
The focus of this workshop is necessary in order to describe their social effects and the practices of opportunity they provoke in heritage, political, cultural or associative institutions. Creating new uses of culture and revealing specialized actors, international conventions modify the social field and produce new spaces for expression and interaction in cultural policy.
Using a comparative perspective, the objective will be first to grasp the different modalities of appropriation of international conventions, led by individuals or groups who use them as powerful means to achieve their goals and, then to address their social and political efficacy.
