Reviews

Preservation and Place is a strong and much needed volume that brings together the scholarly, preservationist, architectural, and activist voices.” • Jack Gieseking, University of Kentucky

Description

Significant historic and archaeological sites affiliated with two-spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer history in the United States are examined in this unique volume. The importance of the preservation process in documenting and interpreting the lives and experiences of queer Americans is emphasized. The book features chapters on archaeology and interpretation, as well as several case studies focusing on queer preservation projects. The accessible text and associated activities create an interactive and collaborative process that encourages readers to apply the material in a hands-on setting.

Katherine Crawford-Lackey is a PhD candidate in public history at Middle Tennessee State University. She currently serves as a contractor with the National Park Service. Her research focuses on public commemoration and place-based history. She recently co-authored an article with Barbara Little, “Exploring American Places with the Discovery Journal: A Guide to Co-Creating Meaningful Interpretation” (The George Wright Forum).

Megan E. Springate works in the National Park Service Cultural Resources Office of Interpretation and Education. She currently serves as the National Coordinator for the 19th Amendment Centennial Commemoration for the NPS. Her edited volume, LGBTQ America: A Theme Study of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer History (National Park Foundation and National Park Service, 2016) was awarded the 2018 Paul E. Buchanan Award by the Vernacular Architecture Forum.
