2) New Editor for Historic
The search for a replacement for Dr. Aedeen Cremin, who is stepping down
after a 6-year stint in the job, was a challenging task for the Executive
Committee. Dr. Winter is a CHASS Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Sydney
researching tourism and heritage in Asia, he and was the convenor of the Of
Asian Origin’: Rethinking Tourism in Contemporary Asia conference hosted by the
University of Singapore in September 2006. Working in Cambodia has led him to
develop a strong interest in understanding the simultaneous and often
contradictory challenges that emerge around heritage and tourism within
societies recovering from periods of violent conflict, such as those around
Angkor, and he is now looking at such issues within the context of urban
heritage in Kashmir.
already contributed an important paper on Angkor Wat which was published in a
recent volume of Historic Environment. Tim is interested in receiving papers for
possible publication in Historic Environment, particularly for the general
non-conference issue planned for the second half of 2007, and he can be
contacted on email@example.com.
In other news

Australia ICOMOS member Marilyn Truscott has volunteered to take on the job and
has been duly appointed. The Executive Committee and members of Australia ICOMOS
acknowledge the very significant contribution made by both Aedeen and Linda to
making Historic Environment the quality journal it is today, and thank
them for their commitment and generosity.

6) Draft for an International Charter on Cultural Routes of
“….As a result of their intensive efforts and a long
process of international consultations among its members, the CIIC has developed
a definition and a specific methodology for the identification and research of
cultural routes along with the recommendation of practices for their proper
assessment and preservation, as well as some guidelines aiming at their
protection, conservation, correct use and management. Both these conceptual and
operational aspects are reflected in the current Project for an International
Charter on Cultural Routes of ICOMOS.
This project was submitted to
the international Bureau and the Executive Committee of ICOMOS at their meetings
of June and October 2005 held respectively in La Havana and Xi’an. After having
obtained the necessary approval and authorisation for its more widespread
dissemination, the project was included with the documentation distributed to
all the participants in the General Assembly held in Xi’an. Taking into account
the comments received from many of them during 2006, as well as the analysis and
the decisions taken by the CIIC at its last meetings, the preamble has been
updated and some aspects of the writing have been improved for better
understanding without introducing changes on the contents of the project.
Aiming at its submission for approval by the next General Assembly of
ICOMOS to be held in Québec in 2008, we are sending this project to all the
presidents of national and international scientific committees. We would be very
grateful to them for distributing it to their members, whose comments and
suggestions will be very welcome until the 1st of April 2007.
With best regards
María Rosa Suárez-Inclán
