Authenticity and Conservation Decision-making: Implications of Different Perceptions and Connotations
The poster aims to inform people of the complexity of the implications of authenticity and conservation decision-making, and to encourage people to consider the complexities involved in the assessment process. By using an assumed case, the idea that no criteria can be valid for all contexts is introduced. Some possible perceptions and connotations of authenticity (in the assumed case) are also discussed. Specific discussions about the definition of authenticity, its importance, and its assessment are given to illustrate diverse implications.
This post refers to coursework done for ARCLG141 (2015-16), one of the core courses of the UCL MA Principles of Conservation. As part of their assessed work for this course, students were asked to design and produce a poster communicating specific aspects of conservation. We hope you enjoy our work! Comments are most welcome.
