Intangible Heritage (9 June, 2016)

91 replies [Jump to last post]

Join us here on Thursday 9 June, from 12.30-1.30pm to discuss all things intangible heritage. Whether you’re a champion for it or want to confess that you’ve never been entirely sure what it is, this could be the live chat for you!

I lead on intangible heritage strategy in HLF (@JoReilly00) and on Thursday I’ll be joined by two intangible heritage experts Eithne Nightengale (@eithnenight) and Suzy Harrison (@SuzyHarrison76) to share our views on the opportunities and challenges offered by intangible heritage and to hear your views.

If you have any questions or perspectives to share we’d love it if you could join us. Please spread with word with interested colleagues.

  1. Hello, and welcome to our Online Community live chat.
     
    Today we’ll be discussing all things intangible heritage, and I’m joined by my colleague Jo, as well as some special expert guests who know a thing or two about intangible heritage! They're all here for the next hour to answer my questions, and yours.
     
    Before we get started, a little bit of housekeeping:

    • We encourage everyone following along to ask questions at any time, but we may wait until the end of the chat, once we’ve got through our initial, over-arching questions, to answer these.
    • The screen will not automatically update as each comment is posted, so we would encourage you to refresh your screen every 5-10 minutes to see the latest posts. (Hit F5 on your keyboard to refresh, or if you're using a Mac, Command + R.
    • And when links are posted, you might want to open these in a new window, so you don't lose your place in the chat. To do this, hold Control + click on the link, or on a Mac, Command + click.

    Now, without further ado, I’ll let my guests introduce themselves.

  7. Thanks Suzy, I also have Eithne here with me but we're experiencing some technical logging in issues. I'll introduce here for the moment (she's dictating!) and we hope she will be able to join us soon:

    Hello, I’m Eithne.  I used to be Head of Equality and Diversity at the V&A and I’m now doing a PhD on child migration linked to Queen Mary University London and the V&A Museum of Childhood. Until recently I was a Policy Adviser in HLF on intangible heritage. I managed a range of reviews and research contracts, the results of which Jo and the team will be taking forward this year.

  13. Thank you very much, and welcome.

    And hello to Alex - thank you for joining us today!

    So, to kick things off, can you tell me a bit about how you first got involved in intangible heritage, and what drives your personal interest in the subject?

  15. I’ve had a personal interest in some of the quirky traditions and customs of England for a long time, so it’s been amazing to be able to link that interest with my academic career. My MA thesis looked at intangible heritage in England and now my PhD does as well.
