Cultural Heritage, Society and Ethics

Basic Information

The Cultural Heritage, Society and Ethics joint call (JPI CH CHSE) aims at furthering the understanding of the relationship between cultural heritage – tangible, intangible, digital and natural – and major societal issues through transnational research projects.These projects should explore the relationship between these three notions from a Social Sciences and Humanities perspective, thus being able to address current conceptual frameworks and facilitating the emergence of new ones. They should create conditions for new ways of engagement and dialogue between disciplines and stakeholders; study what the impact of these new ways in varied cultural contexts.

Aim of the joint call Applicants were invited to address two complementary themes. The first one explored the tensions between how cultural heritage can contribute to the development of sustainable experience-based economies without being put at risk and, concurrently, how the non-utilitarian value of cultural heritage can be promoted in the context of its growing commercialisation. The second explored the relationship between cultural heritage, democratic values, and politics in a historical perspective, with a particular emphasis on the construction of conflicting narratives resulting from the use and misuse of cultural heritage, and on the contribution of cultural heritage to sustainable and ethical behaviours and policies.
