Issue 10.1 Conservation: Discipline & Profession
Change Over Time is pleased to announce the launch of 10.1 Conservation – Discipline & Profession. Since its emergence in the 20th century, modern conservation has matured into a discreet field of intellectual inquiry and an interdisciplinary professional practice. After nearly a century of scholarship and academic programs, institutional representation, and professional practice, it is time for an historical and critical evaluation of the field as discipline and profession. This issue of the journal examines the challenging questions of disciplinary and professional boundaries asking such questions as: What are the disciplinary implications for an interdisciplinary field? How can the profession fulfill its greatest civic promise? And, What are the responsibilities, ethics, and authority of the preservation professional?
