Living with the Past - Heritage Partnerships with the University of Plymouth

This event is presented by Cornerstone Heritage and, in addition to the opportunity to network, would be of great interest to all researchers whose work connects to heritage, from any discipline, and of course anybody with a simple passion for history and culture.

Cornerstone Heritage is the University of Plymouth's interdisciplinary research group for academic researchers and professionals working with community groups and organisations to develop and implement socially-engaged heritage projects.

We will showcase and discuss five of our current research projects, including Queer Stories in Safe Spaces in partnership with Pride in Plymouth and the Plymouth LGBT Archive; Crime Heritage in the Three Towns in partnership with Real Ideas Organisation and Devon and Cornwall Police. 

Laura Keim will join us from the University of Pennsylvania as, in collaboration with Professor James Daybell, she looks at Powderham Castle: Heritage, Impact and Communities. A creative agenda draws in the role of archaeological topophonics with regard to identity and city branding, whilst the use of heritage apps and their interface is considered when addressing visitor engagement.

Even during lunch there’s an opportunity to be transported back in time through a virtual reality experience of Everyday Offending in Devonport in the 19th century.

The event then takes a particularly in-depth look at the work of the Marine Heritage group within Cornerstone, from discovering the underwater cultural heritage to exploring associated policy and crime.
