Heritage and Conservation Seminar
Wed 25 January 2017, 13:50 – 19:00 GMT
Sponsored by the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists (CIfA) and the Centre for Environment, Heritage and Policy at the University of Stirling, this free half-day seminar is open to Stirling MSc Environment, Heritage and Policy students and staff, up to 15 BA Heritage and Tourism and PhD students, and up to 20 members of the CIfA. Booking a place by 16 January 2017 is essential. Any unfilled places will be opened to reserve lists / wider audiences.
Leading practitioners will explore current issues in heritage and conservation, supported by concrete examples. Each 20-minute presentation will be followed by 10 minutes of discussion. The aim is to encapsulate:
different types of heritage (cultural and natural landscapes, buildings, monuments, intangible, collections)
different aspects of heritage work (knowledge and understanding, understanding value, managing change, protection and conservation, engagement and enjoyment)
different types of organisations (central and local government; heritage bodies; umbrella organisations, etc.)
strategic and coal-face activities.
Attendees will have the opportunity to mingle in an informal environment over a break and wine reception.
