Heritage Understanding Course @ INTACH | New Delhi | Delhi | India

20-22 January 2016

Aim

The course will introduce the theoretical basis for understanding, interpreting and conserving natural and cultural heritage.

Content

We will explore the key issues – what is heritage, why does it matter, how do we value the past, what is of significance in this value system, who are the stakeholders in the field of heritage conservation and what roles various people and organisations perform within it. The discussion will illustrate the notions of ‘value’ and ‘significance’ associated with historic fabric and the ways in which this can inform the approaches to conservation. We will also discuss the concepts of tangible, intangible and living heritage and debate about the future of the past. A specially designed field visit on the final day will help illustrate this broader understanding and conservation of heritage.

Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of this course the participants should –

  • Develop an understanding of the concept of ‘heritage’ and its manifestation into various types of heritages.
  • Gain introduction to the notions of value and significance associated with cultural heritage.
  • Develop basic knowledge of the approaches to conservation.
  • Get introduced to the role of key stakeholders in the conservation and management of heritage.
  • Start thinking critically about the present and future of historic heritages.

Speakers

The course will be taught by the staff at INTACH and invited guest speakers on specific aspects of the course.
