The School of Architecture, Art and Historic Preservation at Roger Williams University is hosting an international Preservation Education Conference at the historic Biltmore Hotel in Providence, Rhode Island (USA), September 8 to 9, 2012. The goal of the conference is to bring higher education leaders in historic environment programs (e.g., historic preservation/heritage conservation) together from across the globe to present their research and address issues in pedagogy and curriculum development. Abstracts are invited for paper presentations and discussion panel proposals from international higher education leaders. A selected number of presenters will be asked for a full paper for inclusion in a conference proceedings to be published by the University Press of New England. (A full paper is not required to present a paper or a discussion.)
The keynote speaker will be Dr. Silvio Mendes Zancheti, Director of the Center for Advanced Studies in Integrated Conservation (CECI) and Professor in the Department of Architecture and Urbanism at the Federal University of Pernambuco (UFPE) in Brazil. At UFPE, Dr. Zancheti helped develop a curriculum based on integrated urban heritage conservation -- a holistic, interdisciplinary approach to conserving built heritage.
