- Heritage Conservation
|Coordinator(s)||Andrew Piper (email@example.com)|
An understanding of the philosophy, practice and current state of conserving the cultural heritage of Australia's built environment is essential for anyone considering working in the cultural heritage industry at any level from a cultural resource manager to a historic house volunteer. This unit encourages greater awareness of heritage issues and controversies and provides students with new research skills to analyse and evaluate the worth of heritage items in their communities. Fundamental concepts in heritage are critically examined. Specifically, this unit will require students to analyse built heritage both in terms of planning for its conservation and for its interpretation/exhibition, as well as assessing cultural significance.
Note: Students are expected to purchase prescribed material. Please note that textbook requirements may vary from one teaching period to the next.
