From CHAPS at Rutgers, New Brunswick:
The Program in Cultural Heritage and Preservation Studies—CHAPS— at Rutgers, New Brunswick is hosting Cultural Landscapes: Preservation Challenges in the 21st Century, on October 12-14. The conference focuses on five core themes around the concept, implementation, and management of cultural landscapes and historic urban landscapes. From the conference website:
The conference provides a unique opportunity in time and place for the United States to reaffirm its presence within the international arena of cultural heritage preservation. Cultural landscapes and historic urban landscapes are at the nexus of current efforts in the United States to address our diverse cultural heritage and to revitalize the livability of the nation’s communities through preservation of the authentic sense of place. Rutgers University, founded in 1766 and New Jersey’s land-grant institution, is an ideal setting for the exploration of these issues.
