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?

June 8, 2018

Audience: NP

Time: 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm

  • Location:
  • Room 210 A&B

Queer history still remains largely undocumented. As the National Park Service’s new LGBTQ Heritage Initiative argues, historians and historic preservationists must “explore how the legacy of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer individuals can be recognized, preserved, and interpreted” especially through place. session proceeds from two tenets: all history is local and there is no monolithic LGBTQ history. Participants will learn about our use of oral history, interpreting primary sources to bring queer voices to the surface, interrogating the intersections of race, gender, and class on sexuality, and the role of place in understanding queer history. After presentations, questions and group discussion are welcome.
