An introduction to current issues and techniques in the field of conservation and cultural heritage globally. It will survey differing philosophies and challenges being faced in the documentation, interpretation, support and management of conservation and cultural heritage of buildings, landscapes, sites and cities across the world. The study will proceed via detailed case studies examining projects from a range of scales that may include individual buildings and structures, natural and designed landscapes, urban places and precincts, as well as sites of cultural and historical significance. It will include issues such as twentieth-century heritage and the roles of sustainability and tourism as emerging challenges and opportunities. Key to this study will be the development of a critical appreciation of the differences and relevance of international heritage-based charters and international heritage organisations. The subject may also be run as an intensive field trip posed as a critical case study of international practice.
