IE Webinar: Hermeneutics and its relevance for practical heritage interpretation

Soft rime on spider web

In 1957, Freeman Tilden wrote “Interpreting our heritage”. That same year, the philosopher Hans-Georg Gadamer was invited to the university of Leuven, Belgium, to introduce his concept of hermeneutics. His subsequent work, ‘Truth and method’, became one of the most notable philosophical publications of the 20th century. Considering that hermeneutics is the theory of interpretation: Why has this gone almost unnoticed in heritage interpretation, and might it become more relevant in view of Interpret Europe’s current direction?

Thorsten Ludwig (MSc Interpretation: Management and Practice) studied archaeology and worked at a German national park until 1993 when he founded Bildungswerk interpretation as his own consultancy. From 2015 to 2021, he was Managing Director of Interpret Europe. In his webinar, he will share the latest presentation from the IE Certified Interpretive Trainer (CIT) course.
