Noreen Stonor Drexel Cultural and Historic Preservation at Salve Regina University

RegisterThe Noreen Stonor Drexel Cultural and Historic Preservation program at Salve Regina University will host its annual conference (October 12-14, 2017) on the theme “Gentrification & Preservation: A Reappraisal.” The purpose of this conference is to explore the relationship between gentrification, preservation, and the community – broadly construed.

“Gentrification” is a term that carries a great deal of emotional weight. Because it is so often tied to issues of class and race, gentrification evokes strong reactions and inspires debates that reach far beyond preservation academics and practitioners. It is also true that historic preservation is not infrequently accused of being a handmaid to gentrifiers. Potential topics include position papers, conceptualizing gentrification, historical analysis, and case studies.

Our keynote speaker for the conference is Dr. Lance Freeman, professor of Urban Planning at Columbia University. Dr. Freeman is a leading researcher in the study of gentrification, particularly the various relationships connecting race, ethnicity, socioeconomic class, and housing markets.
