The University of Helsinki, Friends of ICAHM, Museum Centre Vapriikki, Pirkanmaa Provincial Museum and Newcastle University proudly present a working-conference on Development and Best Practices of (Archaeological) Heritage Management as a Course.


With this working-conference we aim to identify possible teaching and/or training needs in heritage management in the Finnish context. We bring together experts, with experience in teaching archaeological heritage management from Finland and from around the world, together to share best practice and discuss whether there is scope to develop teaching and learning around cultural (and especially archaeological) heritage management. We welcome heritage practitioners and researchers, as well as students interested in this field.


Keynote speakers:


– Dr. Susan O. Keitumetse – University of Botswana, Okavango Research Institute


– FM Ulla Lähdesmäki- Pirkanmaa Provincial Museum / Turku University, Finland


– Dr. Aron Mazel – Newcastle University, UK


– Professor Helaine Silverman – University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, USA.


Conference fee is 50€ (30€ for students), and includes the conference programme, buffet lunch at Museum Centre Vapriikki on 7th and 8th June, participation in the walking tour excursion on Friday 9th June, admission to Museum Centre Vapriikki and the conference reception on Wednesday 7th June.


Deadline for registration is Monday 22 May 2017.


There is an additional option to book to join us at the conference dinner on Thursday 8th June.


We are also looking for student volunteers to help on both days – contact us if you are interested!
