Workshop

Organized by:Organisé par :
International Center for the Promotion of Human Rights, UNESCO Category II,, Argentina

Location of event:Lieu de l’événement : Buenos Aires, Argentina

Description :
The International Center for the Promotion of Human Rights, UNESCO Category II, presents the first edition of its International Course on Human Rights: “Human Rights as a Universal Ideal: Global Threats and Challenges”. It will take place from Monday 23 October to Friday 27 October 2017 at the historic UNESCO Observatory Villa Ocampo.

Although significant progress was made over the last 70 years, we are currently facing a process that seriously affects, both directly and indirectly, the universal ideal of human rights. International law and global political institutions are evolving towards relative or extreme weakness. Problems such as global warming, humanitarian crises, widespread corruption or the persecution of minorities of all kinds are, among others, great challenges that more than ever require comprehensive solutions and strategies.

Not since the end of World War II has it been more urgent to debate the universal ideal of human rights, the main challenges facing it and the possible ways out of the serious global problems that are threatening it.

The CIPDH addresses this important topic from the perspective promoted the contemporary UNESCO agenda of Culture, Science, Education and Human Rights and the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development.

To implement this course, we invited a group of world-renown Argentinean experts and teachers in the field of human rights, to share their experiences and reflections on a particularly current and complexe theme. Continue reading…

Salted Paper Prints Symposium

Symposium

Organized by:Organisé par :
American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works ACI, United States

Location of event:Lieu de l’événement : Cambridge, MA, United States

More info:Plus d’infos : URL

Description :
Salted Paper Prints: Process and Purpose
A Collaborative Workshop in Photograph Conservation
Symposium: September 14 – 15, 2017
Harvard University, Cambridge, MA
Organizer: Erin Murphy

Workshop: September 13 and 16, 2017
Northeast Document Conservation Center, Andover, MA
Instructor: Amanda Maloney
Organizer: Monique Fischer
Description
The salted paper print process, publicly announced by William Henry Fox Talbot in 1839, became the first negative-to-positive photographic technique. The ability to make photographic multiples revolutionized the way information was recorded and disseminated in the mid-19th century. These photographs represent records of the scholarly, social, and artistic endeavors of the time and play an important role in educational research across disciplines.

While many salt prints have survived as beautifully preserved images with rich tonal ranges, they can also be prone to fading and color shifts. New conservation research has assisted our understanding of these fragile items, and renewed interest in the historical and artistic aspects of salt prints has paralleled this preservation research.

The symposium presentations will span across the following topics:

Subject-based research as it relates to salt prints (Talbot, early photography, various geographical contexts – especially Europe outside of the United Kingdom)
Chemistry, Materials & Process
Characterization/Variants
Preservation
Contemporary Uses/Issues (imaging, exhibition, teaching, reading room guidelines, current areas of academic research)
