The goal of the 2024 Heritage Conservation Symposium is to share original research, case studies, performances, design projects, and other forms of creative production that examine the intersections of social justice and heritage studies. Presentations will explore how heritage can reconcile with challenging pasts of social injustice, cultural erasure and discrimination, and how an intersectional approach to heritage can lead to more equitableaccessible, and reparative futures.
