Conservation of Architectural Heritage (CAH)

Conference

fromdu 05 February 2018 toau 08 February 2018

Organized by:Organisé par :
IEREK – International Experts for Research Enrichment and Knowledge Exchange, Egypt

Location of event:Lieu de l’événement : Luxor, Aswan, Egypt

More info:Plus d’infos : URL

Description :
Architecture is the platform where all cultures, heritages, traditions, and histories meet, through architectural conservation, the built heritage is prolonged and conserved by the planning of individuals or organisations that works solely for the purpose of conservation & preservation of Architectural heritage. Through critical decisions that are based on the criteria of combining, artistic, contextual, and informational values, the heritage is preserved, restored, or sometimes, no actions might be taken for the best interest of the cultural and architectural heritage.

Planners, environmentalists, and policy makers, are all working together to ensure the conservation and preservation of the cultural, and architectural heritage to the extent of meeting the needs of the present and the needs for the future. The challenge that we face, is not just the conservation and the protection of the heritage, but also how to convey the importance of preserving our heritage to the individuals, communities, and the cities of the world. The role of each and every individual in each community is as important as the role of the vast organizations that always seek to help and protect the environment, and heritage.

Description :

Cardiff University?s Department of Archaeology and Conservation features prominently in this year?s conference, with a number of the Department?s faculty and postgraduates holding sessions, including the following:

Saving Time: Conservation as a Means for Preserving and Advancing Archaeological Context

Session Abstract – Modern conservation practices and analytical techniques offer an array of information for building archaeological understanding and interpretation. Conservation can be an integral part of archaeological practice, creating informed strategies for proactive research, and to this end can be used as a tool for preserving and furthering archaeological context with appreciable outcomes. Employing experimental methods that advance both real world and theoretical frameworks, archaeological conservators are increasingly being utilised as on-site material scientists, instrumentation authorities, and micro- and macro-excavation specialists. A continuing dialogue between conservators and archaeologists serves to further advance contextual theory while balancing the pragmatic needs of archaeology. This session looks to explore the ways in which conservation can benefit archaeological practice and provide insight before, during, and after excavations.

We welcome proposals that include, but are not limited to, the following topics:

– Reflective practice within archaeological conservation
– Digital preservation and documentation
– Innovations in analytical equipment and their use in the field
– Collaborative projects between conservators and archaeologists

Papers will be 15 minutes in length, followed by 5 minutes for questions and discussion. THE DEADLINE TO SUBMIT ABSTRACTS IS AUGUST 25TH.

To submit an abstract: Please go to this page, download the paper proposal form and email to both Ashley Lingle Meeklah (ashlingle@gmail.com) and Jerrod Seifert (seifertjh@cardiff.ac.uk).
