The impact of cross-disciplinary conservation on social development
2 May 2014
The programme for the Institute of Archaeology Annual Conference 2014 on 'The impact of cross-disciplinary conservation on social development' is now available.
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 of the conference 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.
This event is being organised by the Institute's Conservation and Development Research Network, 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).
