Description
The Organisation

The British Council was founded to create ‘a friendly knowledge and understanding’ between the people of the UK and wider world by making a positive contribution to the countries we work with, and in doing so making a lasting difference to the UK’s international standing, prosperity and security. The programmes we use to do this are wide-ranging and cover the arts, education, English, science and society.

The Arts

Our UK Arts team works with the British Council’s global network of offices to achieve significant impact and change by finding new ways of connecting and seeing each other through the arts. Our team in the UK has three main groupings: We have six art form teams; three cross-disciplinary teams; and three country-specific teams in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Our aim is to see stronger creative sectors across the world that are better connected with the UK.

We believe arts and culture are vital to prosperous, secure societies, and that offering international cultural connections and experiences strengthens their resilience. We are uniquely able to make a difference thanks to our extensive and diverse networks in the UK and internationally, enabling us to respond to the individual context of each place we work in.

Refashioning and Redress: Conserving and Displaying Dress

Publication

New Publication

Mary Brooks, Dinah Eastop, Getty Conservation Institute, United States

More info:Plus d’infos : URL

Description
This volume explores the conservation and presentation of dress in museums and beyond as a complex, collaborative process. Recognizing this process as a dynamic interaction of investigation, interpretation, intervention, re-creation, and display, this book examines the ways in which these seemingly static exhibitions of “costume”or “fashion”are actively engaged in cultural production.

The seventeen case studies included here reflect a broad range of practice and are presented by conservators, curators, makers, and researchers from around the world, exposing changing approaches and actions at different times and in different places. Ranging from the practical to the conceptual, these contributions demonstrate the material, social, and philosophical interactions inherent in the conservation and display of dress and draw upon diverse disciplines ranging from dress history to social history, material cultural studies to fashion studies, and conservation to museology.

Case studies include fashion as spectacle in the museum, dress as political and personal memorialization, and theatrical dress, as well as dress from living indigenous cultures, dress in fragments, and dress online.

Description
Online Door to Cultures of the World

The Digital Penn Museum (www.penn.museum/collections/)—a dramatic new way to explore the digital content on the Museum’s www.penn.museum website—was conceived as a portal to the rich and growing array of digital content developed by the Museum, its staff, and scholars. On the site, guests can now build their personalized online experience, searching the collections database (now featuring almost 900,000 objects and more than 180,000 images), browsing over 1,100 videos and archival films, then watching or saving materials of interest via the MyFinds feature.
In addition, the portal links directly to the Museum’s deep Expedition magazine archive featuring articles on archaeology and anthropology going back to the first issue in 1958. Guests can also enter the Museum blog, and discover more than 800 posts authored by dozens of Museum staff and Penn students. Finally, a set of more than 40 “legacy” websites invite guests to explore online exhibitions, past physical exhibition online content, follow international research projects, and even try a few interactive experiences, including the popular opportunity to “Write your name in Cuneiform.”

“The Museum’s mission—to transform understanding of the human experience—carries with it the obligation to provide access to our rich international collections, high-quality programs, and ongoing research, both in the laboratories and around the world,” noted Julian Siggers, the Museum’s Williams Director. “The Digital Penn Museum provides us with the platform to do just that.”
Jim Mathieu, the Museum’s Head of Collections, Publications, and Digital Media, noted that these popular online resources are designed for diverse audiences, from scholars seeking specific data on an area in their field, to more casual visitors looking to learn about world cultures—and find out what the Museum has to offer. “Our ‘curated’ Highlights pages are designed with the new or casual visitor in mind. The Highlights pages pull together a wide range of digital resources about some of our key objects, like the colossal Sphinx from Memphis, the Ram-in-the-Thicket from Ur, or the Hasanlu ‘Lovers’—visitors can discover rich content throughout this new platform, and have an engaging experience as they do so.”
Now launched, The Digital Penn Museum will continue to grow, and guests interested in archaeology, anthropology, and world cultures, can expect to discover new content with each visit in the years to come.


Excavations of the Baths at Roman Carsulae (ITALY)

Field School

fromdu 11 July 2017 toau 22 July 2017

Organized by:Organisé par :
San Gemini Preservation Studies Program, Italy

Location of event:Lieu de l’événement : Italy

More info:Plus d’infos : URL

Description
We are now accepting applications from students and volunteers to participate in our eleventh season of excavations of the baths at Roman Carsulae.

Project and Location
The Roman city of Carsulae, founded in the third century BCE along the Via Flaminia in modern Umbria, was extensively excavated by the Soprintendente for Umbria, Umberto Ciotti, from the 1950s to the 1970s. He uncovered a number of its public buildings including the forum, amphitheatre and theatre and transformed the entire area into an archaeological park. In 2004, our team, under the direction of Professor Jane K. Whitehead of Valdosta State University and the Soprintendenza per i Beni Archeologici dell’Umbria commenced a long term project to re-excavate the baths, which are located just south of the city limits and were left exposed after Ciotti’s excavation 40 years earlier.

In 2011, we received grants from Italian sources, in particular the Associazione Valorizzazione del Patrimonio Storico, which enabled us to construct a roof over the remains of the baths. Because it affords greater protection from the elements, during the 2012 and 2013 seasons we were able to open up areas that were more fragile, thus further exposing the structure.
