Conservation / Consumption

EAAE Thematic network on conservation – Workshop VI

The workshop will be based in La Coruña, Galicia, Spain, and it will comprise academic presentations on the issues identified below as themes, intensive small group discussions and study visits to selected sites associated with El Camino de Santiago / The Way of St. James, an ancient European cultural network derived from the tradition of pilgrimage, transformed today into a highly popular series of routes that fuse the idea of the pilgrim and that of the tourist.


Intending participants should submit abstracts on the identified themes. For logistical reasons the Scientific Committee will accept abstracts to allow a maximum of 60 participants. After the workshop, participants will be asked to submit developed abstracts/short papers – 2000 max words, to be published online on EAAE website. A selection of these papers will be proposed for book publication. All papers will be reviewed, edited and proofread before publication.

The Workshop will be structured as a series of parallel group discussion sessions, with an introductory and a concluding plenary session. The concluding session will include a presentation by rapporteurs of the discussions within the groups. The Workshop will include visits to selected sites, related to the proposed themes. After final presentations, to mark both the end of the workshop and the commemoration of 10 years of Workshops of the EAAE Conservation Network, there will be a discussion about the future and how the Network can best operate to support teaching and research in the field of conservation in the coming years.
