In this course students will study the history and theory of historic preservation and gain practical experience in site assessment and historical analysis. How do we determine historic significance? Who are the stewards of historic spaces? What are effective strategies for preservation planning and policy making? How do artifacts and structures inform our understanding of local history? Students will pursue fieldwork at local sites such as the Washington Street burying ground. The major assignment will be a preservation assessment study of a building or site on Wesleyan campus or in Middletown.
Interpretation -- Field work plus course discussions, readings and assignments aim to develop the ability to analyze designed objects and exhibition spaces within a range of interpretive perspectives.
