Valuing the Historic Environment: 3rd Colloquium

'Valuing the Historic Environment' is a new, cross disciplinary research cluster for the discussion of frameworks of value in relation to the preservation of historic environments. The cluster will meet at three one day colloquia to take place between January and July 2007 and on an online discussion board, available from the cluster www Detailed notes documenting the discussion at each colloquium will also be available from the cluster www. We aim for the activities of this cluster to lead to further research connections, collaborations, opportunities and outputs, with the potential to influence academic debate and policy formulation.

The third colloquium associated with this cluster takes place on the 6th July 2007. The main focus of the colloquium is 'Museumisation and Historic Environments'.
There are a limited number of places available, there is no cost to attend but we are not normally able to pay expenses. Expressions of interest in attending should briefly describe how the persons experience will enable them to make a significant contribution to debate in the colloquia. Expressions of interest should be sent to Anna Woodham at The closing date for expressions of interest in attendance for Colloquium 3 is 15/06/07.
