Ulad Belavusau presented at a workshop on cultural heritage at the European University Institute in Florence (8-9 May 2023)
On 9th May 2023, Dr. Uladzislau Belavusau presented on cultural heritage, iconoclasm and memory politics at a multi-lingual workshop entitled “Bridging Epistemic Divides in Cultural Heritage Protection: An Exercise in Confrontation and Conversation”, organized by the EUI working group on cultural heritage in Florence (Italy). His presentation was based on an earlier article in the Jerusalem Review of Legal Studies (2022). The event brought together scholars from many different disciplines (including history, law, economics and political science) to discuss issues of Eurocentrism, belonging, justice and the role of the law within the field of cultural heritage.
Dr. Belavusau, the head of the Dutch team of the MEMOCRACY project, has also been a visiting fellow at the department of history of the European University Institute in April-May 2023, conducting his research on memory laws and policies.
