​​Heritage and Sustainability: The improbable couple
​​Ana Pereira Roders, Eindhoven University of Technology

A m​asterclass, organised jointly with The Institute of Historic Building Conservation - IHBC:

Thursday, 2 March 2017, 5.30 - 7.00pm (followed by a wine and nibbles reception).

Adam House Lecture Theatre, 3 Chambers Street, Edinburgh EH1 1HR (map)

Heritage and Sustainability are often assumed unrelated, and consequently, studied separately. On the one hand, heritage is assumed focused on material resources, driven by past values, primarily historic. On the other hand, sustainability is assumed focused on people, driven by present and future values, primarily economic, social and environmental. Though, recent studies contradict this opposition revealing the economic, social and environmental values of heritage and the sustainability in historic values. Being a social construction, heritage was found people-driven, material and immaterial, movable and immovable, natural and cultural. This lecture aims to discuss the controversial relation between heritage and sustainability.

Ana Pereira Roders is currently Associate Professor in Heritage and Sustainability, at Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands. She has a wide range of work experience abroad and interdisciplinary cooperation, spanning the fields of architecture, urban planning, law, environmental management and computer sciences. Her research interest is the dual relation between heritage and sustainability in historic urban landscapes. She has a particular interest in integrated assessment and evaluation frameworks to better monitor and strengthen the conservation and use of cultural heritage worldwide. Ana Pereira Roders is also the founding co-editor of the Journal Cultural Heritage Management and Sustainable Development, Emerald.
