We are seeking papers for a panel on the politics of historic preservation
as an aspect of urban renewal.  Although heritage conservation has become a
prominent subject of ethnographic study, the preservation of historic
buildings, neighborhoods, and urban morphologies has not received as much
careful attention.  Yet preservation now plays an important role in many
renewal and redevelopment schemes.  Papers may focus on the politics of
preservation in the narrower sense, but may also address issues of
authenticity, bureaucracy, identity, class conflict, and cultural property.
We hope to assemble a group of papers that address such issues on the basis
of ethnographic research.
