HIST634 - History, Theories, and Contemporary Issues in Historic Preservation
Course Code: HIST634 Course ID: 3988 Credit Hours: 3 Level: Graduate
This course examines the history, theory, and current issues of preservation practices in the United States and beyond. The themes center on the historical roots of preservation, rather narrowly focused on repairing old buildings, and the modern, broad field of preservation in terms of individuals, societies, and cultures and their relationships to the built environment and cultural landscape. Special emphasis is on the multidisciplinary nature of the preservation field and the public nature of its practice.
