CALL FOR PAPERS 2018: The Centre for Social Sciences (Hungarian Academy of Sciences) organizes a workshop on Cultural Heritage, Social Cohesion and Place Attachment between 20–21 March 2018

The main focus of this workshop will be to explore the relationship between cultural heritage (both built/material and intangible/immaterial), social cohesion and place attachment. The workshop serves as a foundation for future joint research applications especially to the EU Calls for Horizon 2020.

The workshop seeks to identify case studies and examples of these processes in action in both urban and rural contexts. Ideally, presented papers should focus on the relationship between cultural heritage, place attachment and social cohesion, or a partial combination of these themes. However, papers will also be welcome which focus on the role of cultural heritage and/or cultural tourism in urban and rural development and the implications for local residents or communities.

Selected papers of the workshop will be considered for publication in the 2018 English special issue of Social Science Review, the double-blind peer-review journal of the Institute of Sociology, Centre for Social Sciences, Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
