The Heritage Pathway provides undergraduates and postgraduate students, as well as Early Career Researchers at the University of Oxford with the skills, knowledge and confidence to engage effectively and efficiently with a wide range of partners in the heritage, museums and cultural sector.
The theme for 2019-2020 is Heritage and Authenticity. Ideas around authenticity lie at the heart of many questions in the heritage sector and most of these questions are context and nation specific. Variations of the question ‘Is it real?’ underpin all aspects of work in the heritage sector.
This term’s sessions will place the question of authenticity in an international context, to suggest that approaches to authenticity are invariably linked to dynamic issues of cultural and societal expressions and values. As the heritage sector is increasingly globalized, it is more important than ever to interrogate global variations in what it means to be authentic.
Workshops will run on alternate Thursdays from 3pm to 5pm in the 3rd Floor Seminar Room, Radcliffe Humanities Building, Woodstock Road and will be followed by drinks and networking until 5:45pm.
