Historic House Museums by Sherry Butcher-Younghans Summary

Historic house museums can be found in nearly every city in the United States and Canada. These are the homes of the earliest settlers, statesmen, frontiersmen, great writers, artists, architects, and industrial magnates. These are the places, carefully saved and preserved, that represent a cultural heritage. Despite their popularity, it is not uncommon to find museums that are in poor repair, their collections neglected and their staffs grossly overworked. Many are run by well-meaning and hard-working volunteers who have little or no professional training. Often they survive on shoestring budgets and are able to present only limited programs. Serving both as a hands-on guide and reference, this book examines these problems, offering practical advice and solutions which can be easily implemented. Its useful "lessons" include governance, where to find help, care of collections, conservation, security, and interpretation--all designed to increase the professionalism of the historic house museum.

Museum Lighting by David Saunders Summary

Author David Saunders, former keeper of conservation and scientific research at the British Museum, explores how to balance the conflicting goals of visibility and preservation under a variety of conditions. Beginning with the science of how light, color, and vision function and interact, he proceeds to offer detailed studies of the impact of light on a wide range of objects, including paintings, manuscripts, textiles, bone, leather, and plastics. With analyses of the effects of light on visibility and deterioration, Museum Lighting provides practical information to assist curators, conservators, and other museum professionals in making critical decisions about the display and preservation of objects in their collections.

Managing Indoor Climate Risks in Museums by Bart Ankersmit,Marc H.L. Stappers Summary

This book elaborates on different aspects of the decision making process concerning the management of climate risk in museums and historic houses. The goal of this publication is to assist collection managers and caretakers by providing information that will allow responsible decisions about the museum indoor climate to be made. The focus is not only on the outcome, but also on the equally important process that leads to that outcome. The different steps contribute significantly to the understanding of the needs of movable and immovable heritage. The decision making process to determine the requirements for the museum indoor climate includes nine steps: Step 1. The process to make a balanced decision starts by clarifying the decision context and evaluating what is important to the decision maker by developing clear objectives. In Step 2 the value of all heritage assets that are affected by the decision are evaluated and the significance of the building and the movable collection is made explicit. Step 3. The climate risks to the moveable collection are assessed. Step 4: Those parts of the building that are considered valuable and susceptible to certain climate conditions are identified. Step 5. The human comfort needs for visitors and staff are expressed. Step 6: To understand the indoor climate, the building physics are explored. Step 7. The climate specifications derived from step 3 to 5 are weighed and for each climate zone the optimal climate conditions are specified. Step 8: Within the value framework established in Step 1, the options to optimize the indoor climate are considered and selected. Step 9: All options to reduce the climate collection risks are evaluated by the objectives established in Step 1.

La conservation des sites archéologiques dans la région méditerranéenne by Marta De la Torre Summary

One of the greatest challenges faced today by those responsible for ancient cultural sites is that of maintaining the delicate balance between conserving these fragile resources and making them available to increasing numbers of visitors. Tourism, unchecked development, and changing environmental conditions threaten significant historical sites throughout the world. These issues are among the topics dealt with in this book, which reports on the proceedings of an international conference on the conservation of classical sites in the Mediterranean region, organized by the Getty Conservation Institute and the J. Paul Getty Museum. The book includes chapters discussing management issues at three sites: Piazza Armerina, Sicily; Knossos, Crete; and Ephesus, Turkey. While visiting these sites, conference participants examined how issues raised at these locales can illuminate the challenges of management and conservation faced by complex heritage sites the world over. Additional chapters discuss such topics as the management of cultural sites, the reconstruction of ancient buildings, and ways of presenting and interpreting sites for today's visitors.

Le politique par le bas en Afrique noire by BAYART Jean-François, MBEMBE Achille, TOULABOR Comi Summary

Dès le tout début des années 1980, les auteurs posaient le problème du politique par le bas en Afrique. Ils soulignaient le rôle des "petits", des "sans importance", des "en bas du bas" dans l'invention de formes originales de l'État... Dans cette nouvelle édition 2008, une préface inédite montre en quoi cette approche demeure utile pour comprendre le monde contemporain en dehors des facilités de pensée.

Roms & riverains by Eric Fassin,Carine Fouteau,Serge Guichard,Aurélie Windels Summary

L’argument est le suivant : ce qui se passe autour des Roms n’est pas l’éternel retour d’une haine du nomade, ce n’est pas identique à ce qui se passe autour des immigrés extra-européens, ce n’est pas non plus la simple répétition de ce qu’on a connu sous Sarkozy. Il s’agit ici de race – et non pas simplement de racisme. En effet, parce que les Roms sont (quasi) européens, ils ne peuvent (plus) faire l’objet de discriminations légales. Pour autant, il n’est pas question de les intégrer. En pratique, se met en place aujourd’hui ce qu’on peut appeler « auto-expulsion » : on rend la vie impossible aux Roms pour les dissuader de rester ou de venir. Pour justifier la discrimination, il faut supposer, a priori ou a posteriori, une différence radicale – qui seule autorise ce traitement inhumain. C’est en cela qu’il faut bien parler de race. Reste une question : si le racisme n’est pas la cause, mais l’effet de la politique (autrement dit, si l’on inverse la logique du populisme), pourquoi nos politiques, en particulier de gauche aujourd’hui, réinventent-ils la race – alors même qu’ils se veulent antiracistes ?

Conservation of Wood Artifacts by A. Unger,A.P. Schniewind,W. Unger Summary

The impetus for this book was the desire to systematically organize the extant literature on the conservation of cultural property made of wood, from its beginnings before the Christian Era to the year 2000. Various published reviews and monographs, including Holzkonservierung (Wood Conserva tion) published by the senior author in 1988, have appeared over the years, especially in English and in German. They have provided exemplary treat merit of individual areas or aspects of wood conservation, but a comprehen sive, up-to-date exposition of historic and current developments has been lacking. The diverse professional fields of the authors, as well as their insights into methods of conservation and restoration of wood artifacts in Europe, North America, and Asia provided a solid basis for the success of this under taking. One of the goals during the examination of the literature was that not only well-known conservators and scientists from countries that are leaders in wood conservation should be represented, but that less well-known, often not as readily accessible contributions should also be included. Only in this manner was it possible to draw a comprehensive picture of the national and international state of wood conservation. The Art and Archaeology Technical Abstracts (AATA) of the Getty Institute were very helpful in our efforts to evaluate as many publications as possible.
