3) Australia ICOMOS - Canberra Talk Series

 

Gothic Revival to Radio Telescopes - Heritage at the University Of Sydney

Derek Hallam

 

The identified heritage of the University of Sydney starts in the 1850s and runs to the mid to late 20th Century.  The general perception of its heritage is the classic Sydney 'Sandstone and Cedar'.  But the reality is very much more complex.  Arguably the built heritage is very much the servant of the intangible heritage of the social demands for tertiary education, education methods and research demands.  Is it the 'School on the hill' or the bravura symbol of Australia growing to nationhood, and subsequent elitism of tertiary education in the Oxbridge mold?  This brief exploration is stimulated by the conservation plan prepared for the whole 'main campus'.

 

Derek Hallam moved from an early career in structures to project management and direction.  Picking up on an interest in conserving our older places, a formal expertise was developed working in the Commonwealth on public assets such as Kirribilli House and Lancer Barracks at Parramatta, later moving to the University of Sydney with overall environment and heritage responsibilities.

 

Members and the public are welcome.  Refreshments will be available.  This is part of a series of talks organised in Canberra by Australia ICOMOS.

 

Time & Date:  5.00-6.30 pm, Thursday 22 October 2009 - the talk will actually start at 5.30.

Venue:  Menzies Room, National Archives of Australia, East Block, Queen Victoria Terrace, Parkes (enter from Kings Avenue side).

RSVP:  To Duncan Marshall at marsd@ozemail.com.au

14a) Historic Environment - Call for Papers 'Convict Heritage': deadline for submission of abstracts extended

 

The Editorial Committee is proposing a volume of Historic Environment dedicated to convict heritage, to be published next year to coincide with the decision on the Australian Convict Sites World Heritage nomination.  For further information about the current World Heritage nomination and the sites that have been selected for inclusion, the document can be downloaded at http://www.environment.gov.au/heritage/publications/about/convict-sites.html.  We anticipate that the majority of the papers will be concerned with the Australian transportation and convict experience, with hopefully a substantial contribution of offerings about the challenges of conserving and interpreting these places today, but papers that take a broader international or historic perspective on the phenomenon would also be welcome.  If you would like to contribute to this particular theme could you please contact one of the guest editors for this volume - either Jane Harrington (jane.harrington@portarthur.org.au) or Peter Romey (peterr@gml.com.au) with a title and short abstract by Friday 25 October 2009.
