    The Cultural Value of Everyday Places

    A symposium in recognition of Richard Longstreth's contribution to scholarship on the American built environment. 

    Tuesday May 28th - Wednesday May 29th, 2019*

    Image Courtesy of the GW Alumni Magazine httpsarchives.magazine.gwu.edujust-passing-through This symposium will take place ahead of the 2019 VAF Conference Landscapes of Succession in Philadelphia. It will involve contributions from a group of former students, colleagues and collaborators whose work engages with, and has been inspired by, Richard Longstreth’s scholarship, teaching and public advocacy. This includes people in academia as well as those in cultural resource management. The various panels at the symposium will focus on contemporary work by a range of scholars and researchers who have explicitly drawn on his lessons or otherwise engaged with the kinds of theoretical and methodological approaches that Longstreth has championed. Given the overwhelmingly historical focus of his work this symposium will naturally look to the past. But it will equally focus on what is being done about the past in the present and will grapple with future directions in how we understand the past and its legacy in the built environment.

    *While scheduled over two days it is planned as 1 full day of events beginning at lunchtime on Tuesday May 28th
