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

Chris Collins (Natural History Museum, London, UK)
Building Bridges between communities through Conservation, Anthropology and Natural Sciences

This presentation will discuss conservation work that engages a range of cultural groups from around the world with collections of natural history research objects. The paper compares and contrasts the influence of conservation and exhibition on these groups and the bridges that are built through an understanding of the object and its values to a specific community.  The paper finally contrasts the differing expectations around the world of cultures to Natural Science Collections and how interaction with different communities has changed our conservation practice.
