Call for papers
Interim meeting of the ICOM-CC Theory and History WG

"Conservation: Cultures and Connections"
National Museum of Denmark, Copenhagen
15-17 May 2013

The conservation profession is in a unique position to create or
facilitate connections within society, both on national and
international scale, linking cultures across continents and across
time. Conservators are engaged with colleagues internationally as
well as members of allied professions; a conservator is capable of
connecting to individuals and collections in many different ways.

The interim meeting for the Theory and History Working Group
(directly following the CiNC conference


will be an opportunity to present papers on issues of central
importance to the working group.

Topics could include:

    The impact of cult on conservation

    Conservation treatments or personalities and their impact on
    cultural history

    Historical and contemporary approaches to "Artist's intent" and

    A new understanding of cultural heritage encompassing both
    nature and 'man-made legacies'

    The complexity of tangible and intangible cultural heritage

    Conservation priorities in western and non-western cultures
