Chair for HCP

The objective of the "History, cultures and heritage" ("Histoire, cultures et patrimoines", HCP) themed Chair is to support and to develop teaching and research programs related to the heritage and the cultural policies of the Université de Pau et des Pays de l'Adour (UPPA). It is hosted at the Identities Territories Expressions Mobililties (ITEM, EA3002) laboratory within Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) college of the UPPA.

The Chair has three objectives:

The Chair is a platform for research, reflection and intervention on questions related to research and promotion of cultural heritage, in synergy with partners from the private and public sector. The research projects are carried out in keeping with the scientific policies of the ITEM laboratory, connected with heritage that is material, architectural, industrial, rural, memorial and immaterial, as well as in response to specific requests coming from private businesses or from territorial collectivities in the framework of occasional partnerships. The Chair helps increase the visibility of research concerning cultural heritage, not only that carried out at the UPPA and particularly by the ITEM laboratory, but also by its partners. It allows for the preparation of the development of new research programs concerning cultural heritage.

The HCP Chair also has the vocation of facilitating the ties between pure research and teaching, and supports the current courses of study in place at the SSH college of the UPPA, particularly the Masters programs in Heritage and museums, and History, Civilizations and Heritage. It enhances the development of the reflection on the creation of new professional diplomas.

Finally, its third objective is to strengthen the links between research/teaching and the professional sector of heritage, notably businesses, associations, and foundations seeking to increase the attractivity of their own heritage, particularly by exploring novel paths of digitization and heritage tourism.
