Reconsidering Our Relationship with Accessibility in Historic Places

Increasing physical access to everyday historic buildings is a concept often in conflict with the practice of historic preservation. But the trend toward more people-oriented, less fabric-focused preservation within our field creates space for us to begin seeking ways to resolve this conflict (and, arguably, mandates that we do so). In this webinar, Megan Diehl, M.A.H.P. ’22, will discuss potential approaches for changing our field’s mindset towards and practice of improving accessibility in historic buildings that encourage more equitable experiences in these places. 

Megan Diehl is a recent graduate of Goucher College’s Master of Arts in Historic Preservation program, where she explored ways of improving accessibility in historic places. She is interested in continuing to advocate for accessibility improvements in historic buildings, particularly in those “everyday” places within our historic landscape.
