The 8th National Forum on Historic Preservation Policy will focus on integrating better historic preservation in local government public policies in the U.S. The keynote will be delivered by architect, educator, preservationist, and author, Richard D. Wagner, PhD, AIA. Sessions will concentrate on Diversity and Inclusion, Displacement and Gentrification, Climate Change, and Land-Use Planning. Each session is composed of three papers presenting different forward-looking approaches to the subject with an expert moderator.
Unique among professional and academic conferences, fully half of each of the four sessions will be devoted to discussion among presenters and audience. To best facilitate this, attendance will be limited to 120 registrants and each will receive an electronic copy of all papers several weeks in advance of the Forum.
