This symposium will examine the myriad of challenges surrounding the
documentation and conservation of twentieth century sites, including
individual buildings, townscapes and communities. Emphasis will be
focused on the architectural legacy of Modernism, in all its
international guises, and on public sites. These discussions on Modern
sites will be complemented by other presentations on the management of
townscapes in contexts that are much older (for instance Afghanistan and
Indonesia), but that face fundamental challenges presented by twentieth
century effects of war and globalization.
The symposium public lectures, panels and plenary presentations will
chart the processes of conservation through the themes of
"Documentation", "Heritage Policy and Implementation"
and "Conservation and Re-Use". Individual Invited speakers span
a wide breadth of international experience from academic historians and
conservation architects, to heritage practitioners and

6) Research degrees in cultural
heritage at Curtin University
Would you like to improve your cultural heritage qualifications
while obtaining a high level research degree at the same time?
As part of its commitment to improving museum and heritage education in
Australia, Cultural Heritage at Curtin University of Technology in Perth
now proposes to focus exclusively on research degrees while still
encouraging coursework and classroom contact.
The Curtin course is renowned for fostering contact between students and
the professional field; this will be maintained through practicum and
In 2009 Curtin will offer two Master of Philosophy courses in heritage.
The first, M. Phil (Creative Arts), gives students the opportunity to
develop a major project in such fields as exhibition development, museum
research , oral history, heritage interpretation and heritage management.
Students will focus their research on a project with tangible outcomes
and accompany their work with a philosophical, interpretive essay. They
will also undertake coursework with their fellow students.
The second degree, M Phil (Cultural Heritage) is the classic research
degree requiring a thesis, but students may also use one third of their
degree time in coursework.
Although Honours is the usual pre-requisite for these degrees,
prospective students with high grades in pass degrees will be

7) 2010 Watch nominations are now
being accepted - deadline for nominations is 15 March 2009
Launched in 1996 and issued every two years, the World Monuments
Watch calls international attention to cultural heritage around the world
that is threatened by neglect, vandalism, conflict, or disaster. The 2010
Watch will continue this tradition of identifying endangered sites, while
also encompassing sites with compelling issues or progressive approaches
that could inform the field at large.
Watch listing provides an opportunity for sites and their nominators to
raise public awareness, foster local participation, advance innovation
and collaboration, and demonstrate effective solutions. The Watch
nomination process also serves as a vehicle for requesting WMF assistance
for select projects.
Since the program's inception, 544 sites have been included on the seven
Watches. Nearly half the listed sites, representing 79 countries, have
received WMF grants totaling $50 million. These WMF monies have leveraged
an additional $150 million in assistance from other sources.
As the flagship advocacy program of the World Monuments Fund, the Watch
is emblematic of WMF's commitment to inspiring heritage stewardship,
forging partnerships, and advancing conservation.
In sponsoring the Watch program, WMF seeks to highlight emerging issues
and opportunities in the field, confront urgent challenges, foster
community engagement, and build capacities and constituencies for
sustaining heritage protection in the long-term.
Additional information about the 2010 World Monuments Watch and
downloadable PDFs of the Guidelines and Nomination Forms are available at

US/ICOMOS: Registration now open for the 12th US/ICOMOS
International Symposium "Preservation in Peril - Disaster Planning, Rapid
Response, and Sustainable Recovery in the 21st Century"
New Orleans, 11-15 March 2009
The theme of the symposium derives directly from recommendations
generated by the 2006 Preserve America Summit (also held in New Orleans)
and the 2008 11th US/ICOMOS Symposium - US Participation in the Global
Heritage Community - which was held in Washington. The 12th
US/ICOMOS Symposium seeks to discuss and develop the outlines of a
national model for disaster preparedness, recovery, and sustainable
response regarding heritage sites that also can be incorporated when
providing US disaster relief assistance overseas. New Orleans was
selected as the location for the conference because of its obvious
relevance to the symposium topic and the desire for US/ICOMOS to help
contribute to the city's recovery efforts by bringing people (and their
dollars) to New Orleans to learn from its experience.
The Hotel Monteleone, located in the French Quarter, will be the
conference hotel and site of all plenary and break-out sessions.

Symposium: SOUTH CITY - Modernist Urbanism in the Southern Hemisphere:
Past, Present, Future
Edinburgh, January 22-23, 2009
The 'South City' Symposium seeks to provoke a stimulating interaction
between the heritage and future of modernist urbanism in the southern
hemisphere. Organized jointly by Docomomo International Committee on
Urbanism Landscape, the Scottish Centre for Conservation Studies (ECA)
and the University of Edinburgh, it brings together a range of experts on
urbanism in South America, Africa and Southern Asia, together with a
range of original films, to pose the question of what contribution the
considerable legacy of modernist planning and architecture, dating mainly
from the postwar years, can make to the challenges of the vastly expanded
urban growth of the C21.

Museum archaeologists confirm historic shipwreck site on Barrier
Australian National Maritime Museum archaeologists working off the
coast of North Queensland are now convinced they have located the site
where HM Colonial Schooner Mermaid ran aground and broke up on the
Great Barrier Reef in 1829.
Surveying the site on Flora Reef, some 20 km out from Cairns, they have
found further metallic objects including heavy copper sheathing which
they are convinced came from the ship's hull.
"We're now certain this is a discovery of major historical
importance," the leader of the museum team, curator and maritime
archaeologist Kieran Hosty, said today.
"There have been several attempts to find this site over the past 40
years or so, but it's always proved elusive... There's a sense of
elation here now."
The Australian National Maritime Museum expedition with scientists from
James Cook University and the Museum of Tropical Queensland along with
ANMM maritime archaeologists and divers set out from Cairns on New Year's
Day to search for the Mermaid wreck site.
Flora Reef was one of several possibilities suggested in historical
Surveying Flora Reef on Sunday (4 Jan) the museum team's magnetometers
(metal detectors) located a site "of interest" where divers
subsequently identified promising clues including a pile of anchor chain
and an anchor which corresponds in many ways to Mermaid's.
Along with the copper sheathing, the latest finds include sheathing
nails, ship's fastenings and lead patches, all of which conform to
documented information on the wooden schooner.
The divers have also found a quantity of canister or casement shot,
ball-bearings of the type fired from the cannon known to be on board
Mermaid, along with a pulley sheath stamped with a broad arrow,
the 19th century mark of government ownership - and Mermaid was a
"All these things, along with the objects we found earlier have
convinced us that these are indeed the traces of HMCS
Mermaid," Hosty said.
The team will remain in the area for a few more days to determine the
extent of the wreck site and help Commonwealth authorities determine the
necessary safeguards to protect what is now identified as a heritage
Divers and archaeologists will use the opportunity to record the site in
detail with cameras and metal detectors. Most of the objects will
be left in place, but a few will be removed for closer laboratory
"A lot of work remains to be done in interpreting the site,"
Hosty said. "It will be interesting to see if the physical evidence
on the site accords with the historical accounts of what happened on the
day the ship struck the reef."
HMCS Mermaid ran aground and was wrecked on an unidentified reef
on 13 June 1829. The captain and crew took to the ship's boats and were
rescued 11 days later by a passing merchant ship, the Admiral
The 21-metre wooden vessel was already well known in Australian waters,
