Object conservators make decisions about what to prioritize in a treatment or housing, all of which influence the presentation and interpretation of heritage items. In a class designed to teach the non-neutrality of decision making, conservation students performed significance assessments on family heirlooms and used these to inform treatment and display housing. This lecture will include an analysis into the impact of significance on a range of conservation decisions.
