CAA Seminar 2014 & New Year Party

Start: Jan 10, 2014 05:00 PM

Location: Room 609, Institute of Archaeology

UCL Centre for Applied Archaeology (CAA)

The Centre for Applied Archaeology (CAA) will present a special seminar and host a New Year party at the Institute on 10 January.

The event will serve as an introduction to the CAA's new EU-funded project (JPI-JHEP), the Heritage Value Network, which is co-coordinated by the CAA and Institute alumna, Kalliopi Fouseki, now based at the UCL Centre for Sustainable Heritage.

The project will initiate a European, cross-disciplinary dialogue between heritage practitioners, researchers and policy makers on ‘heritage values’ through the conduct of three networking workshops bringing together academics, policy makers and heritage practitioners to discuss:

  • How heritage values are understood by policy makers, heritage professionals (e.g. conservators, archaeologists, architects, historians) and heritage theorists across Europe
  • How heritage values can be assessed, measured and prioritized by policy makers and heritage practitioners in Europe?
  • How the public can be involved in the assessment process of heritage values?

After a brief brainstorm on the workshops participants will also be provided with a synopsis of some of the CAA’s other successful projects to date.

All are welcome but please contact Gai Jorayev to RSVP and for more information.
