International Heritage Conservation


The aim of this course is to examine the world of international heritage conservation practices worldwide. This research based course will start with an overview of international historic preservation and what it means, including the built environment, cultural landscapes and intangible heritage. Then the course will move towards an investigation of major policy and organizations that are involved in heritage conservation on the international level, including UNESCO, ICCROM and ICOMOS. The last third of the course will cover controversial cases in World Heritage and heritage conservation case studies from various countries, ranging from Italy and India to programs here in the United States. The overall goal is to introduce students to new techniques in heritage conservation and placing them in the context of economic development, environmental conservation, tourism and urban growth.
