Call for papers: the Future of Conservation

Publication

Call for Articles/ Appel à articles

Institute of Conservation, , United Kingdom

More info:Plus d’infos : URL

Description
The Journal of the Institute of Conservation is seeking Full Articles and Shorter Notices for a special issue of the Journal to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Icon, the UK’s professional body for the conservation of cultural heritage.

As the notion of the preservation of cultural heritage appears beset by renewed onslaught from economic, technical and ideological challenges, the Journal wishes to mark its 40th year of publication with speculative insights into the future of conservation.

Themes for articles could include but are not limited to:
– in the face of contemporary economic, cultural and environmental concerns, is it time for conservation to become more ideological?
– should access to cultural heritage be a legally enshrined human right, with preservation at its core?
– has conservation practice lost sight of its core skills and function?
– what are the skills and practices that conservation should embrace to be relevant for the future?
– is advocacy based on the mandate of saving cultural heritage for future generations bankrupt if sections of the current generation hold heritage in disdain?
– given the opportunities for preservation using digital technologies is it now possible to recuperate any loss of cultural heritage?
– should conservation be more partisan, declaring why at this moment preserving this part of cultural heritage is of value to this particular culture?
– if manifestos are needed, what would a manifesto for the aims of conservation be for the next 40 years?
– are codes of ethics redundant because they are always contingent upon greater factors, including politics and economics?
