ENGAGING CONSERVATION: COLLABORATION ACROSS DISCIPLINES 
Penn Museum Symposium 6-8 October 2016

Join us in Philadelphia on October 6-8, 2016 at the Penn Museum

The Conservation Department of the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology (Penn Museum) is celebrating its 50th anniversary in the fall of 2016. To commemorate the establishment of the department, the Penn Museum is hosting a symposium on issues relating to archaeology, anthropology, and conservation. The symposium will explore how conservation of these materials has evolved over the past half century, the ways in which conservators may inform and support the work of archaeologists and anthropologists, and the development of cross-disciplinary engagement.

The schedule includes two and a half days of talks, as well as a reception and keynote address on the first evening. Lunch and reception are included in the registration price. For details on the conference, including a full list of the papers, please visit http://penn.museum/loveconservation/.
