Elizabeth Pye - The Impact of Cross-Disciplinary Conservation on Social Development 16th & 17th May at the UCL Institute of Archaeology

Elizabeth Pye (University College London, UK)
Objects and wellbeing

Pye explores the many ways in which people may value and enjoy objects, and the various ways in which they are explored and appreciated. She also discusses the effect of multiple values on conservation choices, and ways in which conservators may make this enjoyment of objects more accessible to others. She shows that objects may prompt stories – of the people who owned them, or historical events – and how these stories may affect the conservation process. The paper shows that objects should not be frozen into inactivity but should be enabled to continue providing enjoyment on many different levels.
