Action, advocacy and professional engagement
Professors Gill and Baxter are actively involved in advocacy for the historic environment and facilitation of skills and knowledge sharing in the sector. We both have particular interests and passions, and have involvement in a variety of professional networks. At a national level these include The Heritage Alliance, the Built Environment Forum Scotland. and the IHBC’s Education, Training & Standards Committee. We are also members of various editorial boards for academic and professional journals.
What we’re saying
As researchers and passionate advocates for the historic environment, we tend to have a lot to say and flag things up which interest us. You can keep up with all this via our this blog or our individual twitter feeds and blogs. Professor David Gill tweets as @davidwjgill and blogs at Looting Matters, and Professor Ian Baxter tweets as @ibheritage.
We regularly speak to the media and press, and can provide commentary and analysis on a wide range of issues.
