Interdisciplinarity and Heritage Conservation: from Theory to Practice

The Round Table's participants.

The 10th Montreal Round Table took place from 11 -13 March 2015. This year’s theme, Interdisciplinarity and Heritage Conservation: from Theory to Practice, examined the question of how to engage diverse disciplines in the work of heritage conservation. Some thirty experts in heritage conservation and a broad range of other disciplines from Canada, France, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States of America participated. The purpose of the meeting was to foster an exchange of research, experience and observations in order to clarify how heritage conservation theory and practice might better incorporate broad perspectives from various related disciplines.  The Round Table focused on the need for balance between discipline-based expertise and interdisciplinarity. Participants agreed that reinvigorating place will require thinking outside the box and looking at heritage in an integrative way. The Proceedings are available in a PDF format (5,5 Mo).
