The Call for Papers for the Panel 13 "Manor House: a Heritage from the Past to be Preserved for the Future" is now open!

This panel arises in the scope of the VI CHAM International Conference “Heritage for a Common Future / Futures for a Common Heritage” that will take place in Lisbon (Portugal) between 12-15 July 2023.

The preservation of manor houses, also designated as historic houses, is an increasingly sensitive issue. Some of them are private property, but nevertheless are a testimony of an era and culture. And therefore these buildings are considered cultural heritage to be preserved. Moreover, in some cases they are recognized by their respective governments, being classified and recognized as National Monuments, Buildings of Public Interest, or Municipal, in the Portuguese case, in order to protect and enhance them under the current legislation.

In this sense, this panel seeks to give space for debate around issues that deal with the future of manor houses, solares, palaces, and historic houses that were built in different geographical spaces, and that are private or even public property. In this panel, we welcome contributions that seek to disseminate studies and project proposals concerning rehabilitation and preservation solutions for the future of this heritage. But also, develop a critical analysis about: the cultural and authenticity values versus the adopted solutions (related to culture or tourism sectors); the social and economic impact of this heritage on local development; the impact of the country’s
political, social, and economic strategies in this heritage; the vulnerability of this heritage when shared in the World;

Keywords: Manor houses; Rehabilitation; Preservation; Tourism; Culture.
