The III UFRJ_ISM 2012 proposes a reconceptualization of Musical Heritage, as well as a broadening and deepening of theoretical and methodological issues of musical research, seeking greater involvement in public policies and community actions concerning cultural goods and ways of knowing, making and creating through music. The theme "cultural heritage" or "musical heritage" has involved actions and issues related to the survey and the preservation of cultural goods, researching, promoting diversity and cultural value, the definition of tangible and intangible heritage, the construction of identities, heritage education programs, the democratization of access to musical heritage as a dimension of culture and knowledge, social inclusion, creative economies and intellectual property. It provides a renewing opportunity to discuss the extent to which musicological research and thinking in conjunction with technological innovations can contribute to public policies and institutional actions in complying with the various demands of construction of new knowledge in intersection with society.
