The Management of Egypt's Cultural Heritage - Volumes Two and Three
Following the success of "Managing Egypt's Cultural Heritage", published by Golden House Publications and ECHO in 2009, the ECHO editorial board are compiling a two further volumes of this exciting new project.
"Managing Egypt's Cultural Heritage" was the first volume in the ECHO series "Discourses on Heritage Management in Egypt", a series designed to investigate various issues involved in cultural heritage studies, including visitor management, excavation, surveying, protection, conservation, restoration, legislation, looting, ownership, public archaeology, museology, site and monument records, risk assessment, interpretation and education.
The papers can range from the theoretical to the practical, from the work of large institutions, through cutting edge technology to simple conservation measures, and cover both tangible and intangible heritage.
The periods covered range from the Predynastic to the Coptic and Islamic periods.
The papers can be from 1500 to 5000 words long with a maximum of 10 illustrations.
The house style is the social sciences format (i.e. references in parentheses with a bibliography at the end of the paper), and end notes should be kept to a minimum.
The lingua franca is English with an English and Arabic abstract (the latter can be translated from an English abstract), although a limited amount of Arabic papers with an English abstract can also be included.
We already have several contributions and would like to ask if you could contribute a paper to these new volumes, one of the few platforms for heritage management practices in Egypt.
It is hoped that all the papers in these volumes will contribute in some way to the preservation of Egypt's cultural heritage for the present and future generations through practical suggestions or by raising awareness of the various issues involved.
The deadline for papers for Volume Two has now passed,
however there is still plenty of time for you to submit papers for Volume Three.
The deadline for papers for Volume Three is March 2012.
If you are interested in submitting a paper for Volume Three please read our guidelines for contributors first.
