18.04.2011

The Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn Anthropology Centre (Public Organization) is pleased to announce the launch of the Intangible Cultural Heritage and Museums E-Learning Resources.

Drawing on lectures and hands-on field experience from the Intangible Cultural Heritage and Museums Field School (August 2010) held in Thailand’s Lamphun Province, these e-learning materials focus on the role of the museum in the safeguarding of intangible cultural heritage. Aimed at heritage practitioners and museum operators, the materials offer twelve lectures and two case studies on how to support the research, documentation, transmission and revitalization of intangible cultural heritage.
