Department of State
Cultural Heritage Documentation Project-Dublin
This new study abroad opportunity will take place over Thanksgiving Break 2017. In this class we explore the ways in which historic preservation professionals—urban planners, architects, historians, and so on—research and document the historic built environment.  We begin with a fundamental premise: that historic places, as they exist today, reflect years of decipherable change that can be read like a book, thereby providing us with insight into the lives of previous residents and their cultural milieus.  A critical skill among preservation professionals is this ability to read historic places and share their histories.

Eligibility Requirements:
  • 2.5 GPA
  • Completion of appropriate prerequisites: HIST 221 or HIST 222
This Iowa State course will be offered beginning Fall 2017. The class meets Mon. Wed. 3:10-4:30pm with travel over Thanksgiving Break. Students wishing to participate in this course must register for HIST 481x Public History (Cr. 3) and INTST 395B (Cr. 1) for the travel component.

The historic places to which we turn our attention during the Fall semester of 2017 are two historic residences operated by the US Department of State in Dublin, Ireland:
  • a.c. residence in Phoenix Park
  • a.c. 1845 residence near the current US Embassy in the Ballsbridge neighborhood
