Glimpse the future of heritage conservation from some of the people shaping it: graduate students at the University of Southern California. Why do we save places? For whom? Who decides? Hear how emerging leaders explore these and other issues through groundbreaking research deeply rooted in their personal passions and identities. You’ll learn about the “racing of space” in a Black enclave of Venice, CA; rebuilding the Old City of Aleppo after war; sites of racial violence and havens of substance use recovery; fictional history and acoustic heritage; and so much more. You’ll also hear how alums are transforming what we know as “historic preservation” into a people-centered practice that works for everyone. Catch up on the first two seasons and look forward to Season 3 in the fall! Listen at saveas.place or wherever you get your podcasts (search the full title, Save As: NextGen Heritage Conservation).
