Within the Walls Project Event
Being Human Festival
This seminar will focus on work in cultural heritage management which seeks to acknowledge an archaeology of the homeless community, as a form of social action. The materials presented includes work carried out in collaboration with the homeless in York and Bristol, in which researchers and the marginalised communities explore social value in a new light.
Within the Walls: Heritage, Public History and the Historic City explores the relationship between the community, their values and their heritage. We encourage the public to bring their lunch to the event, along with an appetite for discussions on the meaning of public history in York.
These events are part of ‘Being Human’, the UK's first national festival of the humanities, led by the School of Advanced Study, University of London, in partnership with the Arts and Humanities Research Council and the British Academy.
