International Conference in July

23-06-2014 Engaging Conservation

The Department of Archaeology is pleased to announce the final programme for next month's Engaging Conservation conference, organised jointly with ICOMOS-UK. International speakers and delegates, many of whom are members of York University's amazing network of Conservation Studies alumni, are drawn from Europe, India, Taiwan, and Thailand.

The conference themes, on communities & place and capacity building in conservation, have a high profile on the international scene as well as in the UK. Dr Gill Chitty, Director of Conservation Studies at York, said 'We are excited to be entertaining our colleagues from ICCROM in Rome, who work in this field all over the world, as well as over 30 international and UK speakers to the conference. We look forward to welcoming them to York and to a stimulating and engaging weekend'. 

There are still a few places available for booking for the conference which runs 11-13 July, at the King's Manor in York.
