HS Academy webinar 9/2022: Olfactory heritage: Preserving the smell of sites and collections

IPERION HS and E-RIHS are organizing a series of webinars, a key source of state-of-the-art information on heritage science research, facilities, policy and impact. It contributes to developing a vibrant heritage science community and is intended for anyone involved in interdisciplinary heritage research. We would like to invite you to the 9/2022 HS Academy webinar "Olfactory heritage: preserving the smell of sites and collections" that will take place on November 8th, 2022 at 3 p.m. (Rome time).

The speaker, Cecilia Bembibre (UCL), will present a talk on Olfactory Heritage. After decades of engaging with heritage primarily through our eyes, museums are discovering the value of a multisensory approach to collection curation and interpretation. Smells, for example, are linked to aspects of heritage like traditions and tourism; they stand as symbols of a shared past and enhance visitors' museum experience. Working with scents in heritage sites presents, however, a series of conservation and interpretation issues which research in the emerging field of olfactory heritage seeks to address. In this presentation, we will review methodological challenges for heritage smell preservation and presentation, and reveal some of the concerns of heritage professionals around challenges posed by the introduction of scents as new volatile organic compounds (VOC) in the gallery space, with notes towards developing best practices.

Join webinar 09/2022, "Olfactory heritage: Preserving the smell of sites and collections", on November 8th 2022, at 3.00 p.m. Rome time.
