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

Renata F Peters (University College London, UK)
Conservation and engagement

Peters examines the ways in which museums/heritage institutions and particularly conservators have been changing their attitudes and approaches to use of objects in their care, against the backdrop of an increasingly globalized world in which, counter-intuitively, individual, community and local identity are increasingly emerging. The talk explores whether conservators can take up a role of championing minorities’ aspirations without compromising conservation principles. The author  argues that conservators can only fulfil their potential when effectively engaged with key interest groups related to the collections they work on.
