“Challenges of Identity, Cultural Heritage, Sustainable Development or Tourism related with new crises”

A world still not recovered by the COVID pandemic made it even more obvious how unsustainable our way of life is, and furthermore, the war in Ukraine caused a much bigger energy and economic crisis. These new crises are influencing our lives, especially the economic stability and sustainability of our personal, familiar, social, public, cultural life. These crises are causing also big migrations even an “Age of migration” that is a very accurate issue in agendas of international institutions and scientific interests.
The new crises after the end of the “End of the history”, or as a consequence of the “Clash of civilizations”, are initiating or returning in the public discussers some of the issues that we thought are closed or overcome for centuries, especially in the paradigm of identities. Some of the identities are denying, some are asking for better affirmation, and new identities are appearing in the public life. It is obvious that the issue of identity is very important, especially bearing in mind that in the contemporary world it is one of the most mobilizing factors.
Over the past few years, a remarkable increase has occurred in the use of visual and digital techniques for the research, documentation, management, presentation and communication of cultural heritage. Printed, video and audio media, as well as “New Media” got a role of a main measures for preserving and affirming of cultural heritage, but also as main tools for promoting the cultural heritage values, especially as touristic products. This has drastically transformed the way we capture, store, process, represent and disseminate information.
Over the last few decades, human activities, such as human-caused climate change and other human impacts on ecosystems, have transformed the Earth’s natural systems, exceeding their capacity and disrupting their self-regulatory mechanisms, with irreversible consequences for global humanity. Humanity is already seriously affected by ongoing systemic ecological changes, such as climate change and land use change (especially deforestation).
We think and talk about scenarios, we organize and plan for change, but it is difficult to set ambitious and achievable goals at the same time. All this requires innovative, creative and continuous collaboration, and only if this collaboration is itself sustainable can we become truly resilient.

We invite scholars, PhD and MA students, researchers and practitioners in environmental studies, cultural heritage, political science, economy, tourism sciences, media, architecture, museology, archiving, audio-visual arts, information sciences/ technologies, archeology, anthropology/ethnology, history of art, geography, sociology, psychology and all related fields to submit papers on any topic related to conference theme. Papers may reflect on a wide spectrum of issues related to protection and managing of the environment and cultural heritage, sustainable development, promotion, developing of a tourism etc.
