Cultural Heritage and Ethics of War conference

Event date Event time Event location
18/09/2019 - 19/09/2019 9:00 am - 2:00 pm Homerton College, University of Cambridge Hills Road Cambridge CB2 8PH

The AHRC-funded Heritage in War Project, led by Helen Frowe and Derek Matravers, explores the moral value of cultural heritage and how we ought to incorporate this value into our accounts of the ethics of war, and deal with damage to heritage in the aftermath of conflict.

Whilst some work has been done on these topics by people working in cognate areas, few philosophers have directly engaged with these sorts of questions.

The aim of this conference is to begin to develop a robust account of the status of heritage in war by exploring philosophical work on such matters as incommensurability and incomparability, the nature and status of cultural heritage, risk imposition, and the reconstruction and replacement of damaged or destroyed heritage.
