Welcome

April 2, 2009

My hope is to have this blog serve as a forum to present my thoughts on the conservation and preservation of cultural heritage.  I am by training and trade a book and paper conservator, and so you will have to excuse me if my focus tends in that direction.  However, I do believe that there are larger issues in conservation that extend beyond specific specialties that the field has yet to finish grappling with, issues such as value and ethics, and I expect that many of my entries will touch upon those and other questions.

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to leave a comment or email me. If you find yourself with a desire to write something for the blog, I can only imagine that I would be more than happy to accommodate that as we work to enlarge the conversation.

As always, my writings represent only my own thoughts and should in no way be taken to represent the opinions of my employers or associated organizations, past, present, or future.  There is even the possibility that my writings won’t fully represent my own thoughts, as I have a tendency to play the devil’s advocate in conceptual discussion.
