Public programs facilitate dialogue between academics and professionals, informing scholarship and strengthening practice.

Multiple day conferences, year-long colloquia, individual lectures, “conversations” between individuals, hands-on workshops, and Museums at Noon talks featuring our graduate students all contribute to the remarkable richness of MSP offerings.

Video recordings of some MSP lectures are archived for viewing in our Media Gallery.

Endangered Heritage conference

February 16, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - February 17, 2017 @ 4:30 pm

War, climate change, globalization, and economic development pose significant threats to the world’s natural and cultural heritage. Societies around the world share many of the same concerns, even as specific regions, countries, and communities face unique challenges.

The symposium seeks to establish a dialogue about global heritage among invited international experts and the U-M community—exploring threats to heritage and the strategies that have been developed to mitigate these threats, in both global and local contexts. Speakers representing Africa, South Asia, Southeast Asia, East Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, North Africa and the Middle East will address the challenges their respective regions are currently facing.

February 16 (UM School of Social Work)

February 17 (UM Rackham Graduate School)
