International Field School in Museums & Sustainable Heritage Development, Vietnam, 6 – 21 December 2008 

The International Field School in Museums and Sustainable Heritage Development offered by the Museum Studies Program at UQ aims to provide first-hand experience to graduate students and Professional Development Program participants in locating culture in sustainable development in a rapidly globalising world. Museums and heritage places kinds are considered in the context of sustainable economic, environmental and social development, with a focus on documented case studies and real-life examples in Vietnam. Participants will consider how museums, cultural institutions, and heritage tourism can play a role in the revitalization of local culture and economy, and how international conventions for heritage protection, governance structures, and local area planning intersect within holistic heritage management frameworks. The course provides a critical introduction to cultural mapping, gender and youth issues in community engagement, poverty alleviation and Millennium Development Goals.  It also examines the challenges posed by the conflicts between conservation and development, particularly in World Heritage Areas.

This Field School provides practical field experience not only to graduate students and researchers in museum, heritage and environmental studies, practicing museum and heritage professionals, but will also be of interest to those involved in archaeology, anthropology, planning, postcolonial studies, sustainable development and cultural heritage law. It is also offered as an Advanced Study Option for researchers. Past participants include Doctoral candidates and Post Doctoral Fellows from major universities in the USA, Canada, Australia, UK, China, Korea, Vietnam and Europe
