Consultation and Cultural Heritage

Author: Claudia Nissley
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781315431758
Release Date: 2016-06-16
Genre: Social Science

This pragmatic guide to consultation in cultural heritage and environmental impact management distills decades of experience by two of the leading figures in this area. Claudia Nissley and Tom King reject the idea that consulting with communities and other stakeholders is merely checking off a box on the list of tasks required to implement a project. Instead, they show government agencies and project sponsors how to find the relevant parties, to discuss the project in an open and continuous fashion, to consider alternative strategies, and to seek agreement that meets everyone’s needs. The authors also provide useful guidance to community leaders and other stakeholders to represent their interests in the consultation process. Complete with practical suggestions and cases of successful (and less successful) consultation projects, Consultation and Cultural Heritage is a book that no one involved in this field should be without.

Places That Count offers professionals within the field of cultural resource management (CRM) valuable practical advice on dealing with traditional cultural properties (TCPs).

With more than 30 years of experience at working with communities on such sites, he identifies common issues of contention and methods of resolving them through consultation and other means. Through the extensive use of examples, from urban ghettos to Polynesian ponds to Mount Shasta, TCPs are shown not to be limited simply to American Indian burial and religious sites, but include a wide array of valued locations and landscapesoOe1/4OCOthe United States and worldwide. This is a must-read for anyone involved in historical preservation, cultural resource management, or community development."

Post Conflict Archaeology and Cultural Heritage

Author: Paul Newson
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781315472713
Release Date: 2017-11-14
Genre: Social Science

The human cost in any conflict is of course the first care in terms of the reduction, if not the elimination of damage. However, the destruction of archaeology and heritage as a consequence of civil and international wars is also of major concern, and the irreversible loss of monuments and sites through conflict has been increasingly discussed and documented in recent years.? Post-Conflict Archaeology and Cultural Heritage draws together a series of papers from archaeological and heritage professionals seeking positive, pragmatic and practical ways to deal with conflict-damaged sites. For instance, by showing that conflict-damaged cultural heritage and archaeological sites are a valuable resource rather than an inevitable casualty of war, and suggesting that archaeologists use their skills and knowledge to bring communities together, giving them ownership of, and identification with, their cultural heritage. The book is a mixture of the discussion of problems, suggested planning solutions and case studies for both archaeologists and heritage managers. It will be of interest to heritage professionals, archaeologists and anyone working with post-conflict communities, as well as anthropology, archaeology, and heritage academics and their students at a range of levels.

Uses of Heritage

Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781134368037
Release Date: 2006-11-22
Genre: Art

Examining international case studies including USA, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, Laurajane Smith identifies and explores the use of heritage throughout the world. Challenging the idea that heritage value is self-evident, and that things must be preserved because they have an inherent importance, Smith forcefully demonstrates that heritage value is not inherent in physical objects or places, but rather that these objects and places are used to give tangibility to the values that underpin different communities and to assert and affirm these values. A practically grounded accessible examination of heritage as a cultural practice, The Uses of Heritage is global in its benefit to students and field professionals alike.

Treasures Into Tractors

Author: Anne Odom
Publisher: Hillwood Museum Bookshop
ISBN: STANFORD:36105124169728
Release Date: 2009
Genre: Art

Sixteen scholars from Russia, Vienna, and the United States explore the fate of Russian art collections and libraries following the Russian Revolution in 1917, the institutions and individuals responsible for their sale, and the prominent collectors, libraries, and museums that acquired them. Unlike the widely publicized controversy surrounding Soviet-Nazi war loot and its restitution, the sales of the interwar period are not well known outside a small scholarly community. This volume reveals the extent of the Soviet governmentÕs voluntary ÒrealizationÓ of RussiaÕs cultural patrimony between 1918 and 1938 and its consequences for both the international art market and the perception of Russian art. The imperial Easter eggs by FabergŽ and Old-Master paintings purchased by Andrew Mellon from the State Hermitage and now in the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. are the most celebrated works that changed hands. Equally significant are the bibliographic rarities from imperial libraries, icons and liturgical art from churches and monasteries, and antiques, furnishings and fine art from estates, palaces, and private homes. Anne Odom is curator emerita at Hillwood Estate, Museum, and Gardens in Washington, D.C. Wendy R. Salmond is professor of art history at Chapman University in Orange, California.

Thinking About Cultural Resource Management

Author: Thomas F. King
Publisher: Rowman Altamira
ISBN: 9780759116542
Release Date: 2002-08-27
Genre: Social Science

Tom King knows cultural resource management. As one of its long-standing practitioners, a key person in developing the regulations, and a consultant, trainer, and author of several important books on the topic, King's ideas on CRM have had a large impact on contemporary practice. In this witty, sardonic book, he outlines ways of improving how cultural resources are treated in America. King tackles everything from disciplinary blinders, NAGPRA, and the National Register to flaws in the Section 106 process, avaricious consultants, and the importance of meaningful consultation with native peoples. This brief work is an important source of new ideas for anyone working in this field and a good starting point for discussion in courses and training programs.
