Seminar Series

Implications of Values-Based Approaches to Cultural Heritage Management and Conservation

UCL students and staff are invited to a series of interdisciplinary workshops exploring heritage values and their implications for cultural heritage management and conservation theory & practice.

The purpose of the series is to introduce staff and postgraduates to the range of heritage values related research at UCL and to foster interdisciplinary discussion. Each session will consist of brief presentations followed by themed discussions.

It is hoped that this series will form the basis of future interdisciplinary collaborative research projects related to heritage values.
