Heritage in War conference (New Orleans, 18-19 March 2020)

Registration for the New Orleans Heritage in War conference is now open! Early bird registration is available until the 1st of February. After that the registration fee will increase by an additional £15.

  • Rob Hopkins (NYU, Philosophy)

The AHRC-funded Heritage in War Project, led by Helen Frowe and Derek Matravers, explores the moral value of cultural heritage and how we ought to incorporate this value into our accounts of the ethics of war, and how to deal with damage to heritage in the aftermath of conflict. The aim of this interdisciplinary conference is to bring together researchers and practitioners from a wide range of fields, including (but not limited to) philosophy, international law, heritage studies, archaeology, and the military, to explore issues connected to the protection of heritage in war and conflict.
