SUBMERGED CULTURAL RESOURCES INTERN

On April 29, 1554, three Spanish ships were wrecked off the coast of what is now Padre Island National Seashore. In the subsequent recovery operation, a smaller fourth boat also sank. Texas and the National Park Service care for artifacts excavated and washed ashore from these sites, which are the oldest Spanish shipwrecks along the U.S. mainland coast. 

To make appropriate management decisions, park leadership needs to gain a better understanding of these wrecks and potential measures to mitigate known threats. PAIS also needs to develop interpretive and educational products and programs to increase visitor understanding of these unique resources. The goal of this project is to contribute to a collaborative, inter-governmental effort to research the shipwrecks and share the knowledge gained.   

PAIS proposes to select a DHA-RA intern to document, research, and educate the public about the shipwrecks, including:

  1. A detailed, annotated bibliography to aid researchers studying the wrecks.
  2. Digitization of NPS archival records and creation of a finding aid for materials related to the wrecks to increase NPS information accessibility for researchers and the public.
  3. Translations of at least five key wreck-related documents from Spanish to English.
  4. Updates and additions to the park’s web page(s) to incorporate recent research findings.
  5. Virtual, recorded program(s) in English and Spanish to educate park visitors about submerged cultural resources at PAIS, including why they are significant, what findings they have led to, and what threats they face (e.g., hurricanes).

The intern will also assist with archeological field work to document the submerged and terrestrial sites associated with the shipwrecks; with re-inventory, appropriate packaging, and labeling of associated artifacts; and with development of a traveling exhibit and interpretive and educational materials to share the wealth of knowledge gained from the wrecks about 16th century commerce between the Old and New Worlds.

Call for application for an online UNESCO training course on the UNESCO Training Manual for the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage in Latin America and the Caribbean

Being the biggest “museums” yet to be fully discovered by the public, the waters of the oceans, seas, lakes and rivers guard in their depth broad records of the history of humankind and the traces of its interaction with the aquatic environment. In the region of Latin America and the Caribbean, these “footprints of human existence” span from ancient vestiges of Pre-Colombian watercrafts and ritual objects to the earliest European trade shipwrecks, and embrace the first colonial settlements in the region, such as those of Port Royal (Jamaica). Alongside these remains, these waters safely watch aircraft wrecks, submerged landscapes and prehistoric settlements, underwater caves with signs of human habitation, as well as scattered findings such as lost or abandoned objects. 

In the framework of UNESCO´s 2020/2021 Programme and Budget (40 C/5), and  in compliance with the Culture Sector Main Line of Action 1 (Protecting, conserving, promoting and transmitting culture and heritage for dialogue and development), Expected Result 4 (Underwater cultural heritage identified, protected and sustainably managed by Member States, in particular through the wide ratification and effective implementation of the 2001 Convention), UNESCO Regional Office for Culture in Latin America and the Caribbean (Havana, Cuba) and UNESCO Cluster Office in Quito and Representation to Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador and Venezuela (Quito, Ecuador) with the support of the Cluster office for Caribbean (Kingston, Jamaica) intend to promote, in coordination with all other offices in the region, the use of UNESCO Training Manual for the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage in Latin America and the Caribbean

Due to the restrictions enforced in the context of COVID-19 pandemic worldwide, UNESCO is currently designing an online training course that contributes to protecting underwater cultural heritage and promoting its relevance within 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, thus recognizing that one of the main challenges for its protection lies in providing knowledge and adequate capacities for its study, conservation and management. 

This initiative, which aims at training university students and teachers in archaeology from the region, has received the financial and technical support from the International Programme for Maritime Heritage of the Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands. The Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands / Rijksdienst voor het Cultureel Erfgoed (RCE) – an executive body of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science (OCW) – is the Netherlands’ centre of expertise for tangible heritage. They coordinated the adaption of the abovementioned manual to the Latin America and the Caribbean context and financially support this training. The forecasted capacity-building course will capitalize those activities that UNESCO developed in the past with the purpose of providing technical assistance to strengthen the implementation of the 2001 Convention on the Protection of Underwater Cultural Heritage, as well as to meet countries’ needs regarding archeological scientific and practical research, education on underwater cultural heritage, network-building among experts and underwater archaeologists, experience exchange between countries, whose identification emerged during several regional and national conferences and meetings. 

The call for application will be opened from May 12, 2021, until June 30, 2021, at 23:59 Havana (Cuba) time. Applications containing all required documentation, as detailed in paragraph “Required documents to apply”, must be sent to one of the following email addresses according with the country in which the applicant is currently attending his/her studies or developing his/her academic activities.

•    Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean: habana@unesco.org(link sends e-mail)
•    South America: cultura-quito@unesco.org(link sends e-mail)

Applicants must indicate in the object of the email the following text: Application to UNESCO regional course on underwater cultural heritage. Applications received after the indicated deadline will not be taken into account.
