Annual meetings

29th AEMI Conference, 2 – 5th October 2019, Antwerp

Migrating Memories
Dialogues on the relationship between memory, herit

The 29th annual AEMI meeting takes place from 2 to 5 october 2019 in the Red Star Line Museum in Antwerp/ Belgium.

Amongst heritage professionals and policymakers there is a growing awareness that culture and cultural heritage can be employed to meet the challenges of integrating migrants and refugees into society by means of participation. Through participative initiatives and encouraging active involvement from all social groups, integration can be understood as a process of mutual understanding of each other’s past and present, culture and environment. More and more research and heritage institutions take up a role in safeguarding ‘migrating’ memories and cultural heritage.

The conference is designed to encourage provocative dialogue across the fullest range of disciplines and institutions. During the conference there will be a mix of presentations: papers, poster presentations, discussions and workshops.
