Location: Room 612, Institute of Archaeology
Mr. GUO Zhan, the vice president of ICOMOS, will present a guest lecture, sharing his rich experience of World Heritage nomination and management.
The application of the World Heritage Convention to China has resulted in many positive developments for heritage resource management. In such a vast territory - with extreme differences of education, economic and social development, cultural diversity and natural conditions - the impacts have been diverse and complex. Numerous interesting issues have arisen, not least the perception of divergence between western and Chinese cultural values.
The lecture will be followed by a wine reception in the Staff Common Room at the Institute.
