Description

Announcement and Call For Abstracts:

The next ICOMOS IPHC Conference will be held in Christchurch New Zealand, September 28th – 29th, 2017 to coincide with the planned National Programmes Antarctic season opening weekend in Christchurch on September 30th & October 1st, 2017.

The IPHC 2017 Conference theme is Polar heritage and the ships behind it: management and protection. Getting to and from polar regions has been a constant issue for all polar expeditions, and the ships that made this happen are a key component of polar heritage.

The IPHC 2017 conference will explore the many aspects that arise in the management and protection of these vessels including:
• Historic shipwrecks in polar regions both on land or underwater
• Polar ships that survive as museum displays
• Ownership of polar wrecks and remnants
• Relocation of polar wrecks and remnants
• Use of modern polar ships to access polar heritage sites
• Indigenous use of ship-wreck materials, indigenous input relating to wreck history, and indigenous/non-indigenous interactions related to polar ships and crews
• Royal Canadian Mounted Police ship patrols and their influence on indigenous groups in arctic Canada
• World War II ships, and the history of polar convoys
• Law issues and the protection of underwater heritage

The IPHC 2017 Conference Organising Committee invites submissions of papers that address this theme. Please submit a 300-word abstract and title by 28th February 2017, together with the name(s) of the author and email address to Karen Clarke k.clarke@nzaht.org

For any further queries, please contact IPHC President Julian Bickersteth j.bickersteth@icssydney.com or IPHC Secretary General Nigel Watson n.watson@nzaht.org
