Witnessing the Past: Expressions of Interest

9 August 2010

The AHRC/EPSRC Science and Heritage Programme and the Centre for Contemporary British History are planning four half-day seminars on 8th-9th December 2010 in London. The aim of the seminars is to create an oral history of the development of heritage science between 1947 and 2007 when the Science and Heritage Programme was launched. The events will be recorded, transcribed and published.


The seminars will address the following themes:

    * How have concepts of time and change matured?
    * How has our use of evidence changed?
    * How has the way we work been transformed?
    * How has the emergence of heritage science come about?

Expressions of interest to participate in one or more of these seminars are invited from researchers and practitioners in the field covered by or associated with, heritage science including preservation, conservation, conservation science, archaeological science and architectural science. Please indicate
whether you would like to be considered as a primary witness or an audience witness.

The events will be by invitation only. Places are limited and they will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Please send an email to May Cassar at m.cassar@ucl.ac.uk explaining your interest.

Deadline for expression of interest: 30th July 2010.
