Hi Rebecca,The University of Kentucky offers a preservation field school every summer. The focus and length vary. Last summer the course focused on a mid-20th-century residential neighborhood here in Lexington. This summer's iteration will examine a site in eastern Kentucky and engage questions about the challenges and possibilities of preservation in Appalachia. We always integrate training with traditional methods of documentation with exploration of new technologies, landscape analysis, and ethnographic methods.You can read a little about last summer's field school at https://uknow.uky.edu/campus-news/nations-first-hybrid-historic-preservation-field-school-abloom-data-gardensideIf you want to know more about this summer's school, please contact me directly at Daniel.Vivian@uky.edu.Best,Daniel
