CALL FOR PAPERS

Bridging Ages International Conference in Pretoria, South Africa 11 – 14 September 2018

South Africa celebrates the centenary of Nelson Mandela, an individual who, through working together with others, created a legacy for South Africa and the world. His life epitomizes resistance against challenges which faced African and other parts of the world. From his early life, he took a conscious decision to be an agent of positive change. Working with his comrades and the international leaders Mandela strove for a lasting legacy of a democratic, non-racial and no-sexist society.

You are invited to do a presentation on how to use heritage as a tool to engage with challenges facing the society in which we live and how this work contributes in creating the future.

  • Can heritage be an enabling tool or an obstacle in addressing issues of reconciliation?

Can applied heritage and Time Travel support people who experienced cultural degradations?

  • How do we create a future legacy through heritage education and the Time Travel method, using past challenges? In the local society, in Africa, in other continents? How do we become agents of positive change?

We welcome innovative examples and reflections on resistance, democracy, nationalism, identity, ethnicity and similar, facing the past but heading for the future.

Bridging Ages is an international organization working with heritage education and applied heritage through the Time Travel method. The organization works with museums, schools, universities and cultural and social institutions in more than 20 countries.

The conference will host paper sessions and workshops. Paper sessions contain three or more 20-minute papers, which draw on recent research, practices or educational findings. Workshops are hands-on training sessions, offering participants the opportunity to learn and evolve their approaches to the Time Travel method.

Please submit an abstract of your presentation or workshop, not more than half a page, and a short description of yourself, by 6.4 2018 to Bridging Ages South Africa chairperson, Mr. Jabulani Phelago at jabulani@freedompark.co.za
