PHIL 334 /HERM 334: Professional Ethics in Heritage Resources Management Report a Broken Link

PHIL 334: Professional Ethics in Heritage Resources Management deals with the ways that ethical issues shape heritage practice. These issues are approached through an understanding of moral reasoning, and of the various codes of practice that have been accepted as framing heritage practice. The course studies these issues in terms of specific issues about appropriation, ownership of heritage, censorship, and the exercise of public trust.
