Neil Silberman | Heritage Ethics: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
The Department of Architecture and The Master's Program in Urban Design invites you to a guest lecture by Neil Silberman, "Heritage Ethics: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly".
Cultural Heritage has long been understood as a valuable public good. But is cultural heritage always a positive social factor? Can we distinguish the social impact of “good” heritage from that of “negative” heritage?
Neil Silberman is an author and historian. He served as the founding president of the ICOMOS International Scientific Committee on Interpretation and Presentation (ICIP) and he is one of the founders of The Center for Heritage and Society in The University of Massachusetts Amherst where he serves as a faculty member.
His presentation will suggest that 21st century heritage professionals must learn to recognize how historic preservation can be a two-edged sword.
