Embedding Sustainability in Cultural Heritage Conservation Education

An eighteen-month research project to develop models, tools, and a strategic plan for teaching sustainability in cultural heritage conservation programs.  Funding would support a research associate for the duration of the project who would coordinate activities between UCLA faculty, Getty Conservation Institute scientists, and an outside advisory board consisting of engineers, architects, and conservators with demonstrated expertise in sustainability.

The UCLA/Getty Interdepartmental Program in the Conservation of Archaeological and Ethnographic Materials respectfully requests $75,000 for a Tier I National Endowment for the Humanities Research and Development Grant. We are proposing an eighteen month research project working with a Research Associate and an Advisory Committee to create a strategic plan for teaching sustainability in cultural heritage conservation. The project is the first phase of a larger initiative to integrate sustainability theory and practice into course offerings, convene a workshop of interdisciplinary experts, and create models and scalable curricular materials for publication by eScholarship, an open access publishing platform subsidized by the University of California. We will develop materials through research at UCLA and the Getty, and distribute them widely to benefit educational programs in cultural heritage conservation, library and archives preservation, and conservation of the built environment.
