HYBRID - Great Lecture: Histories of Historic Preservation in the United States

February 1, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EST

Penn Museum
3260 South St.
Philadelphia, PA 19104 United States


Historic preservation has rarely been a subject taken up by historians. In an effort to address this ironic situation, this talk recounts some of the main themes and critiques shaping the development of built heritage and its preservation in the U.S.—and how this process was itself shaped by periodic reimagining of the American past, as well as by international movements such as UNESCO’s World Heritage Convention.

Speaker: Randall Mason, Professor of City & Regional Planning/Historic Preservation, Weitzman School of Design
