|Title||Heritage Under Fire: Current Issues and Dilemmas of Cultural Heritage Protection During Conflict|
|Subject description||This subject critically examines conservation, preservation and protection of cultural heritage, peoples (including victims, collaborators, and smugglers) and archaeological sites in conflict zones such as Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria. It reviews current statutory frameworks, heritage management practices and ethical responsibilities; considers the politics of national and international heritage agencies and what this can mean in times of conflict; and looks at associated dilemmas such as looting and the illegal exploitation and trafficking of antiquities.|
Visiting Scholar: Advanced Seminar B (ARTS90021)
|Visiting Scholar / Subject Coordinator||Professor Andrew May and Dr Rebecca Madgin (University of Glasgow)|
|Title||Cultural Heritage and the Historic Urban Environment: Theory and Practice|
|Subject description||Contemporary heritage practice is a multi-disciplinary enterprise that is informed by critical theory, defined and constrained under statutory instruments, as well as being much debated by many communities of interest. Capitalising on the visit to Melbourne of heritage expert Dr Rebecca Madgin from the University of Glasgow, and drawing on Professor May’s experience as Historian Member of the Victorian Heritage Council, this intensive subject will explore the complementary and at times competing stakeholder interests in the heritage process in comparative Victorian / UK statutory contexts (including the roles and interests of urban and regional planners, architects and conservators, lawyers, builders, archaeologists, property owners and developers, and Indigenous stakeholders), and in particular the role of the historian in understanding, interpreting and influencing issues of social significance, emotional attachment, intangible heritage, and heritage interpretation. Seminars will be supplemented with attendance at statutory heritage registration hearings as appropriate.|
|Assessment||2,500 word essay due at end of semester|
