New! Black, Latino, Indigenous and Asian American Heritage: Inclusive Views in Architectural Preservation
By examining a series of historic sites as case studies, including at least 1 field trip, the class will consider the role race has had on the built environment and how race continues to shape key narratives within the preservation community. Investigate both nationally recognized and forgotten sites, from the precolonial era to the modern day. By reframing architectural history through a sociological lens, this class establishes how structural racism and conceptions of traditionally marginalized groups have shaped the American landscape.
