The impact of cross-disciplinary conservation on social development

 

 

08

Fall

16th-17th May 2014

UCL Institute of Archaeology

A two-day conference organized by the Conservation and Development Network (University College London),in collaboration with the Heritage Conservation and Human Rights Network (University of Nairobi)and the Iraqi Institute for the Conservation of Antiquities and Heritage (University of Delaware).

Conservation decision-making processes are influenced by local, national and international socio-economic factors and their associated contexts. Conversely, conservation can also significantly affect socio-economic development and lead to improvements in people’s lives. Understanding layers of history, values, how they are shaped, their contexts, motivations, and their impact form the fundamental basis for effective decision-making processes in conservation today.The conference will explore the impact of conservation ethics and practices on socio-cultural, economic and ecological contexts in need of development, areas of post-conflict recovery and reconstruction due to natural disasters. The main purpose is to stimulate lasting discussion (within heritage conservation, the broader field of heritage, and nature conservation) on how the practice of conservation can promote human wellbeing and economic prosperity, support conflict or disaster recovery, and foster social cohesion.

Presentations of 20 minutes are invited in the following areas:

  • The impact of the practice of conservation on people’s wellbeing and quality of life.
  • Engagement of local groups in re-construction and/or development through the practice of conservation.
  • Cross-disciplinary collaborations between professionals involved in heritage and nature conservation (in both practical and theoretical levels).
  • Research on and use of locally produced resources to replace expensive imported treatment materials.  
  • Practical issues of conservation in the field, focusing on involvement/training of local people.
  • Theoretical and practical approaches that make the practice of conservation sustainable.

Abstracts in English (1,000 words)should be submitted to conservationucl@gmail.com by 15th Sept 2013. Abstracts should contain main aims of the paper, methods to achieve these aims, summary of the discussion and main conclusions.

Selected authors will be invited to submit their papers to a special issue of the Journal of Conservation and Museum Studieshttp://jcms-journal.com/  (an open access and peer-reviewed journal).
