Launch the Cultures of Conservation Website

At its core, the “Cultures of Conservation” initiative is an attempt to connect the perspective of conservation to an interdisciplinary notion of the human sciences.

The project aims to work on three levels: current students, emerging scholars in the humanities, and conservators. New courses devoted to conservation perspectives, and augmented existing courses will link the study of materiality directly to conservation. Post-graduate fellowships aim to bring young scholars in the humanities to New York to pair with conservators or conservation scientists on projects.
