Latest Issue of Forum Journal
Relevance and Resilience: Proceedings from PastForward Online 2020

FJIntangibleHeritageThe latest issue of Forum Journal captures the proceedings from PastForward Online 2020, the historic preservation movement’s first-ever all-virtual national conference which drew more than 4,000 registrants.

Each of our plenary speakers expound on the conference theme of Resilience and Relevance through the lens of preservation as social justice, on the importance of telling the full American story, and about how histories of marginalized communities can best be represented in preservation practice. The speakers address painful pasts and the importance of not only preserving physical evidence of these truths, but that people, community, and social structures also need to be preserved.  All of the speakers share how preservation can be a tool for positive change moving forward. 

Note: For a short period of time, all of our Forum Journal issues are open to the public.
