Symposium on integrated use of cultural heritage

From: Brenda Weatherston <bweatherston>
Date: Tuesday, February 16, 1999
Integrated Use of Cultural Heritage:
Works of Art as Historical Evidence in Conservation
Inter University Centre in Dubrovnik, Croatia
May 11-15, 1999
Please register by April 2

The University of Victoria is partnering once again with the
University of Zagreb to offer a unique six-day field study
symposium. Join participants and scholars from Europe and North
American for this intensive symposium and field course that examines
historic paintings, drawings, photographs, and media as records of
the built and artifactual environment. The unique educational
setting provided by the Inter-University Centre in Dubrovnik, and
the wealth of local museums, galleries, and heritage buildings
throughout Dubrovnik provide a rich and memorable setting for study.
The symposium will address:

    *   the iconography of landscapes, townscapes, historic
        buildings in art

    *   architectural conservation and restoration through the
        analysis of works of art

    *   identification of view points in landscapes: deviation,
        contortion, and idealization of reality by the artists

    *   tests of veracity

    *   interdisciplinary research as a tool in establishing
        documentation values

    *   museological interpretation in articulating heritage values
        in reconstruction work
