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

Anne-Marie Deisser (University of Nairobi, Kenya)
Cultural and natural heritage conservation: cross-disciplinary perspectives

Deisser discusses the ways in which conservators’ ideas about culture and nature, and their potential partnership are mediated, shaped, negotiated and contested through legal issues, ethics, local politics, and respective ‘traditions’. Conservation is explored as a cultural practice, which is conceived, debated, developed and performed in partnership, as a cross-disciplinary response to international and local crisis of politics and/or of socio-cultural values. In these contexts, conservators are concerned with assessing, modifying, and/or integrating sustainable practices into their particular settings and seek what partnerships between ‘culture’ and ‘nature’ can offer.
