Gis Aided Archaeological Research Of El Camino Real De Los Tejas With Focus On The Landscape And River Crossings Along El Camino Carretera., Jeffrey M. Williams Aug 2007

Gis Aided Archaeological Research Of El Camino Real De Los Tejas With Focus On The Landscape And River Crossings Along El Camino Carretera., Jeffrey M. Williams

Faculty Publications

Many generations of indigenous pathways through the forests of eastern Texas have their origins obscured in antiquity. Utilized by early European explorers, these pathways became modified through heavy use and the expansions and improvements needed to accommodate easy passage of European horses and carts and finally the heavy wagons of Anglo-American settlers. The first road through Texas, El Camino Real de Los Tejas, utilized portions of these early trails.

El Camino Carretera (known as the cart road) is an early segment of El Camino Real de los Tejas that crossed the Sabine River at the boundary between Texas and Louisiana ...

Historic Preservation And Revitalization In Working-Class Communities, Paul Woodward May 2007

Historic Preservation And Revitalization In Working-Class Communities, Paul Woodward

All Theses

Historic preservation and revitalization efforts undertaken in lower-income, working-class communities often have negative consequences, including displacement and gentrification. Too often, sense of place and community spirit are sacrificed in an effort to save important historic buildings. As both sense of place and historic fabric are important, it is necessary for preservationists, planners, community members, and others to analyze the current condition under which preservation and revitalization take place, and begin looking at alternatives. Through analysis of case studies that focus on mill villages, three different approaches to preservation and revitalization are considered. Each case study offers valuable information for other ...


Housing And Living Patterns Among Charleston's Free People Of Color In Wraggborough, 1796-1877, Katie Ann Stojsavljevic May 2007

Housing And Living Patterns Among Charleston's Free People Of Color In Wraggborough, 1796-1877, Katie Ann Stojsavljevic

All Theses

This thesis focuses on the living patterns of Charleston's antebellum free black population by examining spatial contexts, architectural styles, building materials, and the various socio-economic factors which influenced such patterns. Wraggborough, serving as a specific case study neighborhood, was selected based on its residential diversity in terms of both race and class. The timeline from 1796 to 1877 follows Wraggborough from its origins and subsequent development, into the enslavement crisis on the eve of the Civil War, through the Reconstruction era.


The "Dead House" At The Former Charleston Navy Base And Shipyard, Christopher Ohm May 2007

The "Dead House" At The Former Charleston Navy Base And Shipyard, Christopher Ohm

All Theses

Over the years a small brick building on the former Charleston Navy Base and Shipyard has been studied, yet still leaves many with unanswered questions. Much speculation has been made about its builder, and date of construction, but with little success. Many researchers cannot agree on the original use of this building, usually referred to as the 'Dead House.' Historical research pointed to many answers, but often led to almost insurmountable questions. This author's recent research has found several missing sites eliminating much confusion. Further research has led to explanations for many of the enigmatic aspects of this building ...


The Interpretation Of Comingtee Plantation, Kimberly C. Norton May 2007

The Interpretation Of Comingtee Plantation, Kimberly C. Norton

All Theses

This thesis provides a long term preservation plan for Comingtee Plantation, located at the confluence of the east and west branch of the Cooper River in Berkeley County, South Carolina.

The site is owned by the Department of Natural Resources, a state agency, and is accessible to the public, though use is generally limited to hunting activities. During the summer of 2006 I participated in an internship project with ...

Learning To Live With The Past: Cultural Heritage Preservation In Aksum, Ethiopia, Lara Cueni Apr 2007

Learning To Live With The Past: Cultural Heritage Preservation In Aksum, Ethiopia, Lara Cueni

Independent Study Project (ISP) Collection

The powerful Aksumite civilization left behind a great deal of archaeological material in the north of Ethiopia, but current cultural heritage preservation in the modern town is rudimentary. The government, realizing the potential for cultural heritage as an economic resource, has enlisted the work of a number of heritage management experts to not only improve heritage preservation in Aksum but also involve the local community to a greater extent. Especially noteworthy is the construction of a new museum in Aksum to replace the old, insufficient museum. Planners have been striving not only to improve preservation system and the tourism industry ...

The Plurality Of Truth In Culture, Context, And Heritage: A (Mostly) Post-Structuralist Analysis Of Urban Conservation Charters, Jeremy C. Wells Jan 2007

The Plurality Of Truth In Culture, Context, And Heritage: A (Mostly) Post-Structuralist Analysis Of Urban Conservation Charters, Jeremy C. Wells

School of Architecture, Art, and Historic Preservation Faculty Publications

This paper analyzes international heritage conservation charters through the post-structuralist lens of relative and perspective-driven “truths,” fragmentation, and dramatic settings. The “SPAB Manifesto,” the Athens Charter, the Venice Charter, the Burra Charter, and the Nara Document on Authenticity are evaluated within the framework of discursive theories established by Michel Foucault, Jacques Derrida, Jürgen Habermas, and Gilles Deleuze in regard to cultural meanings and absolute and relative truths. Preservation doctrine through the Venice Charter engages in a positivist truth based on the substantiation of material fetishes. These early doctrines imbue the materiality of the object with truth as an absolute rather ...
