Virtual Launch of Volume no. 15 of the International Journal of Intangible Heritage

Celebrate the launch of the 15th volume of the International Journal of Intangible Heritage and the 15-year anniversary of its founding – in a two-part webinar series commencing on 15 July 2020. COVID-19 restrictions mean that while this year’s Journal could not be launched at the ICOM Annual Meeting as is traditional, this virtual launch in the form of a webinar series, will enable the Journal to involve many more people in an event that will bring together authors and book reviewers, practitioners and professionals, individuals and institutions, all of whom have been instrumental in the production of the IJIH over its 15 years of existence. Participants in the two webinars, all authors in Vol.15, will address the two main themes emerging in this year’s Journal: Museums and Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH): perspectives, policy making and practice; and Identity and Meaning: Traditional knowledge and Traditional craftsmanship. These themes are examined in articles and book reviews that interrogate a wide range of issues such as safeguarding methodologies, the interface between living heritage and museum practice, techniques for reconstructing the past, remembering traditional foods, archival methods of recording traditional craftsmanship, the evolution and preservation of traditional practice in religious contexts and secular occupations, and the intersection between site-based heritage and intangible heritage. The locations from which the papers and reviews in this issue of the Journal are drawn is virtually global in scope including new knowledge generated from the regions of Africa, South-East Asia, Asia/Pacific, Europe and North America. Each webinar session will deal with one of the two main themes. There will also be contributions from those who have worked to establish and develop the IJIH in the past, and question and answer sessions. We hope that you will take this opportunity to be part of the celebration of the past and present work of the International Journal of Intangible Heritage, to hear first-hand from the people who have shared their experience and insights in this issue of the Journal, and participate in the rich discussion and dialogue which are anticipated.
