"The Politics of Historic Preservation: From Charleston to Cleveland" with Dr. Stephanie Yuhl
As home to the nation’s first Historic Zoning Ordinance, Charleston, South Carolina serves as a rich case study for understanding the motivations and challenges of the historic preservation movement. Led by elite white woman, Charleston’s preservation story enables us to explore the tensions among history and heritage, personal memory and personal politics, and inclusion and exclusion in the built environment. Yuhl will use Charleston as a case study to propose some probing questions about the legacies of preservation work that she hopes will spark discussion about Shaker Heights’ past and possible future legacies.

This virtual talk is free to the public and is made possible through support from Ohio Humanities.
