Thanks to the establishment of world heritage system and the rise of global tourism, the discourse of heritage and religion have witnessed revival in recent decades. In countries such as China, Korea and Japan, both heritage and religion revived with the economic reform and have been used by the government as strategies to maintain social stability; and, both have become “commodities” people consume when they confront with identity crisis, and anxiety of loss due to the rapid transition of urban or rural environment in recent years.

Chemistry for Conservators 2017

Tutor: Velson Horie

This correspondence course provides an introduction for people with little (for instance lower school chemistry studied years ago) or no chemistry. The course provides an excellent background to many training courses in conservation; indeed several conservation training establishments recommend this course to potential students with an insufficient chemistry background. Taking this course should enable students to gain greater insight into their everyday work.
