Our world is changing and historic preservation must too. Cultural fragmentation, demographic shifts, economic and political transformation, climate change, and the emergence of digital technologies that affect our relationship to place—all of these realities must be faced if preservation is to embrace its rightful role as a living and vital connection to our past. Join the conversation with our panel of thinkers and doers as we ask: What role can preservation play in enhancing the financial, environmental, social, and cultural well-being of our communities? How can we embrace the past without losing sight of our future?

  • Location:
  • Room 210 A&B

Before and after the world-shaking events at Charlottesville during the summer of 2017, intense debate has swirled around the future of monuments and public commemoration strategies in the United States, where audiences in the public square are rapidly diversifying. Join three practitioners and scholars as they reflect on the challenges of representing contested histories in public space, beyond just Civil War statues. From the varied perspectives of architecture, sociology, and public history practice, panelists will reference both local and global cases to discuss the diversity of approaches we as history professionals can deploy to publicly commemorate broad histories in innovative and inclusive ways.

This session was organized by Izzy Kasdan, Executive Director, Historical Society of Princeton
