New Voices Call for Change: Interviews with Diversity Scholars

By Forum Online posted 06-02-2014 10:50

Diversity Scholars featured in this issue of Forum JournalSince 1992, the National Trust’s Diversity Scholarship Program has supported the attendance of community leaders new to preservation and emerging preservation professionals at the National Preservation Conference. More than 2,100 individuals from diverse socio-economic, racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds have participated in the program to date. Last year at the National Preservation Conference in Indianapolis, we interviewed six scholars to learn more about their work with groups historically underrepresented in the preservation movement, the role of intangible heritage in their respective community’s preservation practice, and how their work differs from how preservation organizations have traditionally approached preservation.
