The 2018 Year of Cultural Heritage was declared to be conceived as an occasion to `highlight the importance of European culture`. An importance that is however acknowledged in its grandeur and that needs constant deepening and re-visitation/interpretation. The European Year of Cultural Heritage aimed to be a bottom-up approach on the participatory governance of cultural heritage aimed to foster awareness of European cultural history and values and to strengthen a sense of European identity. However, the patrimonial European identity goes in terms of temporal and geographical extensions well beyond the EU as political arrangements. This panel aims also to address cultural heritage appropriations in political projects inside the EU in asserting the intrinsic value of European cultural heritage for a European unity. The politicization of culture in the process of inventing a European identity is co-substantial to the EU as an institution and brings also about inclusion/exclusion nexuses and cultural recognition inside the EU.

This panel welcomes the most diverse and multi-disciplinary approaches to the European cultural heritage in holistic terms and/or details.

 Intellectual History and Cultural Heritage
