The Noreen Stonor Drexel Cultural and Historic Preservation Program's annual conference, focusing this year on "Preservation and Memory," will explore the complex relationship between the past and the present as it plays out in the preservation and interpretation of buildings, objects, monuments and landscapes.

Dr. Melinda Milligan, professor of sociology at Sonoma State University, will deliver the Richard A. Grills Keynote Address in Historic Preservation. Milligan is a leading researcher in the social psychology of historic preservation, particularly the study of place attachment and nostalgia.
