University of Victoria – Cultural Resource Management Program: Heritage Conservation Planning (HA 489L)

This course provides an overview of heritage planning, the field within heritage conservation that addresses and resolves proposed interventions to historic places in the context of community planning and development. The objective of heritage planning is to manage change wisely. This course will consider both individual and collective historic places (e.g., buildings, historic districts) in a variety of geographical and physical contexts.  Planning will be addressed within the frameworks of economics, sustainability and ethics. Harold D. Kalman, Ph.D., LL.D, a heritage planner, architectural historian and principal of the Vancouver office of Commonwealth Historic Resource Management Ltd., will draw illustrations from his practice as a professional heritage planner as well as from the broader experience of heritage planning in Canada and internationally. The six-day course is designed for professionals involved in the management of historic places, whether in the public or private sector, and at any level from beginning heritage planner to senior decision-maker. It takes place March 12 – 17, 2012 at the University of Victoria campus. The registration deadline is February 13, 2012. Late registration will be accepted if space permits.
