2013 Field School in Preservation Philosophy and Practice
Friday, October 4 – Sunday, October 6, 2013
Codman Estate, Lincoln, Mass., and other Historic New England sites

Designed primarily for graduate and undergraduate students in historic preservation and related fields, the Field School uses lectures, case studies, and field observation to demonstrate how Historic New England’s preservation philosophy underpins decision-making and translates to real world applications, moving from Conditions Assessment to Interpretation, Implementation Planning, and Treatment.

Directions in Twenty-First Century Preservation

Roger Williams University, Bristol, R.I.

Preservation students, professionals, and advocates from around New England convene for a symposium on new directions and challenges in twenty-first century historic preservation. Speakers include a panel of leading preservation advocates and academics, juried student posters, and Pecha Kucha presentations. Detailed schedule to follow.

$40 for students. Continental breakfast, box lunch, and reception included. Registration required.

The deadline for students poster submissions and Pecha Kucha presentation proposals is December 1, 2013. Accepted presenters will be notified by February 1, 2014.
