On Monday, November 26th at 6pm, in Moore 328, the AMST Graduate Program in Historic Preservation is sponsoring two talks by conservationists, Dr. Tim Winter and Ms. Kecia Fong. Dr. Winter will be speaking on "East/West: Heritage Conservation and Questions of Difference." He is Senior Research Fellow at the Institute for Culture and Society, University of Western Sydney. His work centers on how heritage is shaped through certain knowledge practices; and how it figures in issues like nationalism, post-conflict recovery, sustainability, postcolonial identities and urban development. He has published widely on these themes and his recent books include Routledge Handbook of Heritage in Asia and Shanghai Expo: An International Forum on the Future of Cities.
Ms. Fong's talk is titled "Rethinking Conservation from Practice to Theory." Ms. Fong is a conservator and PhD candidate at the Institute for Culture and Society at the University of Western Sydney. She has worked internationally in the field on diverse projects such as the revitalization of the historic Islamic core of Cairo, ancient Peubloan sites in the American southwest and on the emergency conservation and stabilization of the ancient city of Zeugma in Turkey. Prior to joining ICS she worked on issues of conservation education globally for the Getty Conservation Institute. Her current research focuses on conservation practices in Burma as a means to explore existing conservation paradigms in a globalized context. She is Associate Editor for Change Over Time: An International Journal of Conservation and the Built Environment.
