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 211A
  • Audience:
  • HPC

Time: 10:45 am 12:00 pm

Have you ever driven past a building in your historic district and thought, “Hey, we didn’t approve THAT!” Has your municipality’s Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) reviewed a project pursuant to the local preservation ordinance, only to discover that the project wasn’t built as it was approved, or was built without any approval at all? This session will explore how a municipality can and should address issues of non-compliance with an HPC or planning board determination, violations, and enforcement. A strong relationship and effective communication between the HPC and other municipal officials, including the code or construction officials responsible for enforcement, are critical to the success of the larger municipal land use system.

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.

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.
