HP 524L - Archival Research


Co-listed with: HP 324L 
Prerequisites: None
Research in historical preservation entails: site-specific research related to the physical fabric of a building, community, engineering feature, landscape or archaeological site; or more generalized research on context-social, cultural, and technological. This course employs the research methods and resources needed to complete the nomination of a site to National Register of Historic Places (NR) in accordance with National Park Service standards, particularly as they relate to Statement of Significance and Description. Classroom discussions will be linked to a series of field trips to a wide range of archival repositories and relevant neighboring sites. Through these, students consider the significance or meaning of a place, how we determine these attributes, and how we conduct research that supports our argument. Additional work will address how other scholarly research is informed by application of these methods. Students cannot receive credit for both HP 324L  and HP 524L.
