Australia ICOMOS only recently learned of the passing of one of our Northern Territory members, Dr Mickey Dewar, who was a prominent historian in the NT and who throughout her career was closely involved in documenting and protecting our built heritage. In her role as senior curator of history at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory (1994-2006) she oversaw major conservation works on some of the Territory’s iconic heritage properties, including: Fannie Bay Gaol, the QANTAS hanger, Lyons Cottage and The Residency in Alice Springs. Mickey devoted two of her books and over 50 articles and reviews to documenting and interpreting the built environment. Since 2013 Mickey continued this interest as Heritage Coordinator at the NT State Library and on the board of the National Archives Council. During her 37-year career in the north Mickey worked as a teacher, researcher, writer, political adviser, librarian and curator.
At the Australian Historical Association Annual Conference this year, Emeritus Professor David Carment AM honored Mickey with these words:
“Mickey Dewar’s contributions to the history of her beloved Northern Territory were immense. She was an elegant and original writer, a careful researcher with a knack for discovering elusive sources, the energetic member of numerous heritage and history boards and committees, a mentor for other historians and history students in the Northern Territory, an interesting and always thoroughly prepared school and tertiary teacher, a much sought after public speaker, the Territory’s most innovative history curator and an always helpful librarian. She was also sparkling company and probably the most rapid reader I have ever known. Like many others, I learned a lot from her.”
Mickey’s Darwin wake was held at the QANTAS hanger on 6 July – click on this link for its coverage: Sunday Territorian 9 July – Mickeys Wake (note: zoom in on PDF to read more easily).

Mickey Dewar is survived by her husband David Ritchie, children Sam and Susannah, and grandson Theodore. Australia ICOMOS expresses our deepest condolences to Mickey’s family, friends and colleagues.
On the 27th and 30th of August, the International Advisory Committee of ICOMOS ran two introductory sessions for the newly-established ‘ICOMOS Young Professionals (YP) Working Group’.
Following an EOI process, Australia ICOMOS is represented on the group by Dr Ania Kotarba-Morley of the University of Wollongong, NSW.
The proceedings were chaired by senior members of the Advisory Council, including Sheridan Burke and Toshiyuki Kono.
During the teleconference Ania attended, participants from 30 different ICOMOS National Committees around the world introduced themselves, described their route into ICOMOS and outlined the role that YPs play in their respective National Committees.
A number of issues were raised in discussion, including:
- Whether people in the early stages of their career should be referred to as ‘Young Professionals’ (or are better options ‘emerging’ or ‘early career professionals’), and is it fair to restrict the age of such a group to 35 years old (some YPs are mid-career at this stage, whilst some members could be early-career still in their late 40s). It was suggested that a more accurate terminology/model from academia could be implemented.
- Australia ICOMOS President Ian Travers’ suggestion that it would be useful to have mid-career professionals to guide YPs, as they are often more directly involved in the activities of YPs, was also forwarded to the group.
Issues around YPs joining ICOMOS were raised by a number of participants. Since one needs to have two referees, many emerging professionals have difficulty with finding the right people and getting into ‘the inner circle’.
- The question of mentorship was raised, with the mentorship programmes in Australia hailed as a good example. The creation of ‘observer’ roles on heritage projects was also discussed as a different option for adding to the experience of mentees.
- Involving emerging professionals in the executive structures, such as working groups and scientific committees, was discussed. The working group is waiting for statistics regarding how many YPs serve on executive structures around the world – this could be determined during the AGM in Delhi.
- Exchanges between National Committees would be a great way of encouraging international discourse between YPs. Issues include how to fund such exchanges, and who would host them. Perhaps academic and/or industry structures could be used for this purpose.
- The demographics of different committees were discussed, and a pledge was made to ‘de-fossilise’ some National Committees.
- Engagement of students through bursaries to increase conference presence, and encouragement to present papers or posters, would be a good way to showcase ICOMOS’ openness to YPs. Cultural Heritage, Museology, Conservation Architecture and Archaeology undergraduate and postgraduate university programs could be targeted for advertising of such events. Care should be taken to ensure that students from across different disciplines are included – there is a strong perceived (and likely actual) bias in favour of conservation architecture in many National Committees.
- National Committees should be encouraged to address the question of ‘age barriers’ by inspiring people from different ‘walks of life’ to join, regardless of the stage of career at which they are. Informal meetings would be of help – ie. the ‘pub meetings’ that a number of National Committees run. Keeping meetings informal might facilitate more open dialogue.
Australia ICOMOS members, including young and emerging professionals in particular, are encouraged to contact Ania or Ian with any suggestions in relation to the above, or to find out how best to contribute to the goals of the working group.

Deakin University’s next Cultural Heritage Seminar will be a presentation by James Lesh (The University of Melbourne), on “’A Regional Conservation Manifesto’ and the Australian re-invention of urban heritage, ca.1975–ca.1985”.
Until recent years, the urban heritage of the Australian city has often been marginalised in global conservation narratives. This narrative might be encapsulated in the myth that the Australian city has little or no heritage worthy of meaningful preservation when assessed from a traditional ‘Western’ or ‘Eurocentric’ perspective. In response, since the 1970s, Australian heritage professionals—consultants, policymakers, activists and academics—have subverted and overcome this narrative. The fruits of their success is the robust Australian heritage management field. Particularly via the 1979 Australia ICOMOS Burra Charter, this field has equally impugned, influenced and improved global urban heritage practices. Examining events around the original Burra Charter, this paper argues that the historical erasure of Australian heritage empowered subsequent local, regional and global urban conservation activities.
James Lesh is a PhD Candidate at the University of Melbourne. He recently returned from a year based at the Menzies Centre for Australian Studies, King’s College London. His research explores global urban conservation since the early twentieth century. His PhD dissertation traces the long rise of heritage activism, regulation and management in the Australian city, via focussed studies of significant places, people and organisations. His next publication, “From modern to postmodern skyscraper urbanism and the rise of historic preservation in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth, 1969-1988”, will appear in the Journal of Urban History.

‘Restoration Australia’ (ABC) follows the experience of restoring a home through the eyes of the homeowner(s) and those closely involved, and is currently identifying homes to feature in upcoming seasons of the show.
They are looking for houses built between 1815 to 1970 – anything from wonderful derelict colonial ruins to grand old Queenslanders missing a few walls, crumbling Georgian mansions to dilapidated Victorian terraces and original Federation gems.
They’re very interested in finding people who are passionate about saving their properties and places that are rich in history. They’re open to both true restorations and heritage buildings that are getting a modern makeover or extension. The properties don’t need to be heritage listed and projects can be small footprint, small budget, or larger scale.
Over the coming months their host will follow the restoration journeys, delving into the past to discover the building’s history. The show is not a competition; it is simply a celebration of these wonderful properties and the stories behind them. This is a great opportunity to showcase the work of everyone involved in the restoration process, as well as creating a video journal, which can be enjoyed for many years to come.

Dr Edward Swarbreck Hall: Colonial medical scientist and medical activist
presented by Dr Carey Denholm and Prof Stefan Petrow
Dr Hall arrived in Van Diemen’s Land in 1833 and died in 1881. During this time he was the leading Catholic layman, physician within the convict service in eight locations, was a pioneer epidemiologist, nationally and internationally recognised proponent for immunisation and medical research, and active critic of the convict system. He was a prolific writer of many issues of the day to newspapers and appeared before tribunals and investigations. He regularly clashed with doctors, administrators, politicians and the clergy and demonstrated moral courage and passion in exposing the poor care of women and children at the Cascades Female Factory and the Queen’s Orphan Asylum. Dr Hall worked for a time at Saltwater River and Impression Bay. With the death of his son, Leventhorpe, in 1936 and none of the five daughters marrying, the family line died out. This presentation covers Hall’s remarkable life and his many contributions to Van Diemen’s Land.
Dr Carey Denholm AM is the former Professor and Dean of Graduate Research at the University of Tasmania (UTAS). After leaving UTAS in 2007 he held two professorial positions then returned to a private psychology practice with children and adolescents in Hobart. He is the author and co-author of a number of academic books and published works. Retirement afforded him the uninterrupted time required to work on this book with Professor Petrow.
Prof Stefan Petrow teaches and conducts research in the History and Classics discipline at UTAS. He has authored a number of books and has published numerous articles on Tasmanian history. He is a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society and serves on the Editorial Board of the Australian Dictionary of Biography.
When: Wednesday 25 October 2017 at 5.30pm
Where: Junior Medical Officer’s House Conference Room (rear of the house), Port Arthur Historic Site

28. Information Request to Assist a Project on the Significance Assessment of Early Colonial Buildings in Tasmania
Anne McConnell (TAS) and Mary Knaggs (NSW) are currently undertaking a consultancy project for Heritage Tasmania in relation to early colonial buildings. The specific project scope is to look at improving the assessment of the significance of early colonial buildings and primarily residential buildings, for the Tasmanian Heritage Register.
The study is a methodological study that is aimed at providing Heritage Tasmania with finer grained assessment tools for the inclusion of such places on the Tasmanian Heritage Register. The project will examine assessment under each criteria for listing (ie. is important at the state level for historical, scientific, technical, rarity, representative, social, associational or aesthetic reasons), and has also been asked to provide advice on how rarity, integrity and the grouping of early colonial buildings affect their significance, hence their assessment and inclusion on the Heritage Register.
Our research to date indicates there are few similar methodological studies relating to early colonial period places or other period residences in Australia, or detailed recent studies of the types or significance of early colonial buildings that might assist us. We suspect there are such studies out there in the grey literature, therefore we are very interested in hearing of such studies.
If you are aware of such studies, or have undertaken such studies and are happy to share this information, please contact Anne McConnell by email.
