Heritage Conservation in Aotearoa


Description

This course addresses the main principles of heritage conservation focusing on rationale rather than treatment. Special emphasis is given to the fields of: conservation of place, Māori buildings, marae-based paper collections, textile, fine art and archaeological conservation. Studies provide students with a cultural orientation to conservation where issues are examined through several contexts, including anthropological studies and conservation science.

The course includes two weekly lectures and a fortnightly laboratory or field trip to heritage institutions and selected conservation projects in the Auckland region.
