Parlour LAB 11: Rethinking Heritage, with Amanda Achmadi and Kelly Greenop + Chris Landorf
LAB 11 explores the conception of heritage in the context of the built environment, with a focus on the Asia Pacific.
Kelly Greenop + Chris Landorf will discuss digital cultural heritage as a new method of archiving and experiencing heritage. How are emerging technologies changing the way we archive and experience heritage” What implications does this have for the profession and society more broadly?
Amanda Achmadi (of ACAHUCH, and co-coordinator of the upcoming ACAHUCH symposium mentioned below) will present her work resurfacing intra-colonial networks and encounters in late-nineteenth-century Asia Pacific, which provides a forgotten context of built heritage discourse in the region now.
