Academic Department: Cultural and Historic Preservation
An architectural historian by training, I have been involved in academic preservation programs for nearly 20 years. I teach the introductory sequence of courses as well as courses in architectural history and the history of cities. I also offer a hands-on studio course on historic cemetery conservation using Newport's Common Burying Ground as a work site. My publications range in subject from American county courthouses to 19th-century grifters marketing imaginary cities. I am currently preparing for publication a book on 19th-century American architect William Strickland.
