The Cultural Resource Management Program is pleased to announce the following heritage conservation course on campus from June 7 – 12, 2010.

CONSERVATION IN CONTEXT: Changing Historical, Theoretical and Operational Perspectives
HA 489K (1.5 units); on-campus offering
This course addresses the complex range of principles and practices that create a framework for effective heritage conservation planning and decision-making. The practical implications of international and national heritage conservation charters, principles, standards, and guidelines are discussed, along with legal, programmatic, and financial incentives and constraints. Strengthen your capacity to:
- Trace the evolution of preservation and conservation activity in Canada and beyond
- Work within a principles-driven, systematically organized and systemic framework for conservation decision-making
- Identify programmes, information and research resources and networks that support conservation activity
- Distinguish between intervention, conservation and management planning for places of heritage value, and work with methodologies for each
- Respect and integrate the values and interests of communities in conservation decision-making
- Recognize the range of options for intervention, use and development (additions, modifications) that can be considered in managing historic properties
- Anticipate the implications for conservation decision-making of contemporary concerns for values-based approaches, sustainability, risk preparedness, monitoring effectiveness, building performance upgrading (seismic and fire codes, energy performance, accessibility requirements), cultural landscape and other holistic approaches, environmental assessment approaches; and shifting emphases in legal and institutional frameworks
