Colloquium: Museums, Museumisation & Historic Environments. July 6th, University of Leicester.
'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 http://www.le.ac.uk/ms/contactus/valhistenvir.html. 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'.
