I am so excited to be presenting a Power Session at this year’s PastForward National Preservation Conference in Savannah next Friday!
I was selected by the National Trust for Historic Preservation to be one of their 2014 Mildred Colodny Scholars. Not only did this wonderful opportunity and honor provide a generous scholarship towards my graduate studies, but an internship at the Trust and being able to attend this year’s conference and present.
I am so excited about going and meeting everyone and I hope that you will come out to my Power Session PFR 110: “Connections: Relaying, Relating, and Relevancy of Stories from Underrepresented Communities” on Friday, Nov. 14 from 10:30 – 11am in Rm. 102/103 of the conference center. I’ll be discussing how these stories are part of everyone’s collective history, how we can make them relevant to all of us and the preservation field, and explore some of the tough questions and concerns involved in doing so.
See you in Savannah!
