Course on understanding the conflicts and complexities of heritage management

What is Heritage? Why do we spend so much time and effort preserving old buildings? Why are some structures neglected, while others are pristinely preserved? Who decides which building is worth preserving, and who pays for it? 

This program will prepare you to address concerns of governance, finance, livelihoods, and architecture for urban heritage management.
