Participe à 2 sessions
Candace Iron holds a PhD in Humanities from York University, Toronto, Canada. Although she specializes in 19th-century religious architecture in Canada, much of her current research relates to the adaptive reuse of buildings between religious traditions. She first became interested in the adaptive reuse of religious architecture while working as an Architectural Historian at the Ontario Heritage Trust, where she helped develop and implement the Ontario's Places of Worship website and database.
Candace is currently a Partial-Load Professor of Liberal Studies at Humber College, Toronto, where she teaches courses in religious history and aesthetic theory. Additionally, Candace is the Vice-President of Membership of the Society for the Study of Architecture in Canada. Candace has presented more than 30 scholarly papers at national and international conferences and has published several chapters and articles dealing with church architecture in Canada, adaptive reuse, and architectural theory.

Heritage Changes the PoliciesActivists and Experts

Private sector cultural heritage evaluation, protection, and management in Ontario exists at the nexus of academic theory, legislative direction, and land-use planning. Heritage work in this context follows a conservation approach to mitigate the loss of identified resources due to urban and infrastructure development. Ideally, the process balances ‘expert knowledge’ with regular and protracted engagement with government agencies, communities, and individuals to create evaluation criteria,...

Le patrimoine fait aujourd’hui l’objet d’attentions autant que d’agressions et de destructions. Cela peut s’expliquer par les difficultés de son identification ou de sa conservation. Cela peut plus profondément s’expliquer parce que, dès le départ, il célébre un événement ou conserve une mémoire qui peut être ou devenir une source de dissenssions et de conflits politiques. Enfin, sa reconnaissance suscite des gains économiques pour les uns mais des pertes pour les autres. Mais peut-être...

Heritage changes placeCo-construction of heritageCommunity-based heritageHeritage makers

While historical churches are being abandoned all over the Christian West, more and more places are growing the opposite way: pilgrimage sites are being enlarged and enhanced, whole urban districts are being developed with churches and temples boasting diverse, and often unorthodox, religious practices. Epistemologically linked to heritage, the sacred now seems to follow a path of its own, staging itself in new settings where the “religious heritage” refers mostly to common practices, however...
