University of DelawareNewark, DE 19716<div class="ExternalClass87575DB7F8BF446D81B48D8FF42EDD5A"><p></p><p class="yiv0438356055MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom:0px;padding:0px;color:#000000;font-family:helvetica, arial, sans-serif;font-size:13.333333015441895px;"><span style="font-family:sans-serif;">I am a daughter, sibling, wife, parent, educator, mentor, student, facilitator, organizer, preventive conservator, engaged scholar…. Others identify me as disabled. I prefer phrases like, <em>uses a wheelchair to navigate when outside of her home</em>. I currently live on land that was violently stolen from the Lenni-Lenape centuries ago, and in a society that relies on systems and structures developed on the backs of enslaved people. I am beginning to truly understand the harmful and unjust legacy of those actions. I realize self-reflection, self-education, empathy, communication, vulnerability, courage, and action are required to build an equitable world and I am committed to continually taking these steps.</span></p><p class="yiv0438356055MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom:0px;padding:0px;color:#000000;font-family:helvetica, arial, sans-serif;font-size:13.333333015441895px;"><span style="font-family:sans-serif;"> </span></p><p class="yiv0438356055MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom:0px;padding:0px;color:#000000;font-family:helvetica, arial, sans-serif;font-size:13.333333015441895px;"><span style="font-family:sans-serif;">Professionally, I am an Assistant Professor of preventive conservation in the Department of Art Conservation, and the Associate Director of the Winterthur/University of Delaware Program in Art Conservation. My current work in preventive conservation is dedicated to evolving the practice of the specialty to place social, economic, and environmental sustainability at its core. As a critically-engaged scholar, </span><span style="font-family:sans-serif;">my work is focused on helping my field broaden its understanding of what cultural heritage is, diversifying who conserves this heritage, and bringing multiple and non-dominant ways of knowing and doing to the conservation process. The field of conservation is currently 85% white, 77% female, 71% able-bodied, and 75% university-​educated. These professionals write that a conservator is someone who: <em>“</em><em><span style="color:#212529;">Saves our cultural heritage <strong>physically</strong>. They are unique in the wider preservation field for the particular expert <strong>hands-on</strong> technical and decision-making skills they bring to preserving and caring for and our <strong>tangible</strong> history.” </span></em><span style="color:#212529;">My scholarship is contributing to the field by developing an understanding of who holds the power and privilege needed to maintain the status quo, who and what has been excluded, and what it will take to include the excluded. </span></span></p><p class="yiv0438356055MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom:0px;padding:0px;color:#000000;font-family:helvetica, arial, sans-serif;font-size:13.333333015441895px;"><span style="font-family:sans-serif;"> </span></p><p class="yiv0438356055MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom:0px;padding:0px;color:#000000;font-family:helvetica, arial, sans-serif;font-size:13.333333015441895px;"><span style="font-family:sans-serif;">A developing source for my collaborative work is </span><a rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer" target="_blank" href="https://whatisconservation.com/" style="text-decoration:underline;color:#0563c1;cursor:pointer;"><span style="font-family:sans-serif;color:#1155cc;">whatisconservation.com</span></a><span style="font-family:sans-serif;">. At the site, individuals can engage in discussion around the questions, Who is a conservator? and What is conservation? </span><a rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer" target="_blank" href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TidfFMe5_xg" style="text-decoration:underline;color:#0563c1;cursor:pointer;"><span style="font-family:sans-serif;color:#1155cc;">In this video presentation</span></a><span style="font-family:sans-serif;">, you can watch, listen to, and read a conversation on how graduate school might need to change in order to include more disabled conservators in the profession.</span></p><p class="yiv0438356055MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom:0px;padding:0px;color:#000000;font-family:helvetica, arial, sans-serif;font-size:13.333333015441895px;"><span style="font-family:sans-serif;"> </span></p><p class="yiv0438356055MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom:0px;padding:0px;color:#000000;font-family:helvetica, arial, sans-serif;font-size:13.333333015441895px;"><span style="font-family:sans-serif;">This work can only be done in collaboration with those outside the field of conservation. I am always on the lookout for partners in any field and/or any community who have an interest in cultural heritage. Please be in touch so we can explain our work to each other and see what comes of it.​</span></p></div>jwickens@udel.edu/Documents%20Bios%20CVs/Wickens_websiteCV_2022.pdfWickens Ph.D., Joelle D.J. <img alt="" src="/Images%20Bios/Joelle%20Wickens.jpg" width="640" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />WUDPAC Associate DirectorAssistant ProfessorPreventive Conservator<img alt="" src="/Images%20Bios/JoelleHBCU.jpg" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />WUDPAC Associate Director Dr. Joelle Wickens working with students from historically black colleges and universities, as part of a summer conservation program held in collaboration with the HBCU Alliance of Museums and Galleries.
