Expanding History

This session explores contemporary efforts to expand what it is that historic preservationists are preserving, from buildings built in the recent past to ordinary places like shopping malls to sites where historic objects are no longer present. Conventions within the field and preservation laws can make expanding the scope challenging, but not impossible. 

Registration for each class is required. Please contact programs@pulitzerarts.org if you require any accommodations to participate in the program.


Facilitated by National Building Arts Center Executive Director, Michael Allen, this five-week class series will examine the multiverse of historic preservation practices in our world today. Classes will meet each week at the museum and will include assigned readings, guest lectures, and open spaces for discussion. This class series is best for teens and adults.
