Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items
For the remainder of 2020, resulting from Australian Government's directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, any exams that are required for assessment in a unit will be online exams. Online exams may also use online proctoring to help assure the academic integrity of those exams. Please contact your unit convener with any questions.
While the University has made efforts to ensure that Unit Outlines reflect a unit’s learning activities and assessment items, any changes to Australian Government directives because of the COVID-19 pandemic may require changes to these during the semester to ensure the safety and well being of students and staff. These changes will not be updated in the published unit outline, but will be communicated to you via your unit’s UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. Any changes made will continue to meet the unit’s learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.

In this unit you will be introduced to the concept of heritage as a social process of using and valuing aspects of the past in the present. We will review the origins, history and philosophy of the contemporary heritage conservation movement by examining key manifestos and examples, including from the UK, Scandinavia, France, China, India and the USA. We will then focus on the post-war rise of heritage as a major feature of national cultural politics and international cultural diplomacy, and use UNESCO's World Heritage List as a device to examine how place and landscape embody memory and cultural heritage significance for different communities. We will focus on the material remnants of the past in built environments and cultural landscapes, but also consider how cultural values, materiality, cultural knowledge and practice, are entangled, and how conservation approaches this complexity.
After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Interpret and apply concepts of heritage value, significance and the philosophical underpinnings of different approaches to conservation;
2. Explain and contextualise the history of heritage conservation and its regional traditions and approaches;
3. Analyse and compare different approaches to heritage conservation from different periods and national contexts; and
4. Apply understandings of heritage value and conservation to the analysis of approaches to heritage conservation, including assessments of heritage value and conservation management plans.
One 1 hour lecture and one 2 hour interactive workshop per week.
