The Palgrave Encyclopedia of Cultural Heritage and Conflict (PECHC) is an interdisciplinary encyclopedia which critically analyses the relationship between cultural heritage and conflict as well as the tangible and intangible remnants, traces and spaces of competing heritages and memories of the past in the present. Entries are welcome from researchers and professionals in the field of cultural heritage and conflict or related areas. Editor-in-Chief is Ihab Saloul.

The encyclopedia brings together leading and junior researchers and professionals from different disciplines across the humanities and social sciences to provide the state of the art and most comprehensive overview of theoretical and methodological approaches to the study of cultural heritage and conflict. The interdisciplinary scope of the encyclopedia breaks new ground in the study of contemporary narratives of cultural heritage and conflict and the ways in which they broaden public understandings of the complex spacio-temporal dynamics between collective memory and identity. By crossing academic and professional boundaries, the encyclopedia aims to offer an open space for the rich scholarship in these fields, and to contribute to a better understanding of the extent to which practices and discourses of cultural heritage and conflict operate at local, national, transnational levels worldwide.

Entries are welcome from academics, researchers, postdocs, PhDs and postgraduate students and professionals in the field of cultural heritage and conflict or related areas and expertise. All contributors to the project will receive lifetime access to the constantly growing major reference works collection on SpringerLink and a 40 per cent discount on all Springer Nature books. Please refer to the project website for more information on potential topics for entries, the editorial team and author guidelines.
