How to Enroll

This course will introduce students to the theory and practice of Cultural Resource Management. Cultural Resource Management (CRM) is the contemporary term for how remnants of the past are identified and preserved by an array of public history professionals. We will examine the relationship between the desire to safeguard the physical record of human history, the ethics of preservation, and legislative compliance. This course will explore questions about why we preserve some things and not others, how those resources are defined, documented and assessed, and who is involved in the process. In particular, students will gain an introduction to the legal contexts that shape the preservation of cultural resources. Topics will include the history of historic preservation, including the most significant legislation of the 20th and 21st century; and the legal and scholarly contexts that affect the management of cultural resources today in both private institutions and federal and state agencies. Open to Historic Preservation (HISTPRESRV) students only.
