Dear Faculty colleagues,

The CIL is looking to hear from faculty with interest in teaching topics
related to Historic Preservation and Theory, including but not limited to

   - the history and legal aspects of the preservation movement in the
   - how preservation is helping to revitalize rural communities in the
   Genesee Valley Region,
   - connections between historic preservation, Native American studies,
   African American studies, and other often-overlooked preservation contexts.

Faculty would be able to collaborate with regional partners including the
Landmark Society, Genesee Country Village and Museum, the Village of
Poetry, and Young Urban Preservationists on 3 connected 1-credit
Intersession courses this January:

   - Intro to Preservation History and Theory, including the regional
   context and opportunities
   - Intro to Traditional Trades, including hands-on experience in window
   restoration and other skills
   - Career Pathways in Historic Preservation

We anticipate teaching contributions a faculty member would make would
utilize existing research/teaching projects, but this opportunity could
equally provide the space to develop new work. Contributions could involve
a single session meeting of a 1-credit course (e.g. 30-60 minutes) or a
more substantial role leading a 1-credit course.

We welcome questions and ideas! smithlj at geneseo.edu and manapol at geneseo.edu.

All best wishes,

Lytton Smith / Nicole Manapol
