Dr. Jeremy Wells

Assistant Professor of Historic Preservation
Roger Williams University
Participe à 2 sessions
Dr. Jeremy C. Wells is an assistant professor in the Historic Preservation Program in the School of Art, Architecture, and Historic Preservation at Roger Williams University, USA and a Fulbright scholar. Previously, he has worked as an historic preservation planner, Main Street manager, and as an architectural materials conservator. He is the co-editor of the book, Preservation Education: Sharing Best Practices and Finding Common Ground published by the University Press of New England. Dr. Wells created the Environmental Design Research Association’s Historic Environment Knowledge Network in 2008 to work with other academics and practitioners in addressing the person/place and environment/behavior aspects of heritage conservation. Dr. Wells is interested in how people perceive, value, and interact with historic environments and how this experience is similar to the experience of natural environments with a focus on place attachment. He uses social science research methodologies, such as ethnographies, survey research, and phenomenology to answer these questions because, fundamentally, he believes that the conservation of the historic environment is an endeavor that should benefit people. He is currently in Brazil conducting research on community participation and heritage conservation planning in Olinda, Pernambuco. Primary publications: Wells, J. C. (2007). The plurality of truth in culture, context, and heritage: A (mostly) post-structuralist analysis of urban conservation charters. City and Time, 3(2:1), 1-13. Wells, J. C. (2010a). Authenticity in more than one dimension: Reevaluating a core premise of historic preservation. Forum Journal, 24(3), 36-40. Wells, J. C. (2010b). Our history is not false: Perspectives from the revitalisation culture. International Journal of Heritage Studies, 16(6), 464-485. Wells, J. C., & Baldwin, E. D. (2012).

What if we changed our views on heritage? And if heritage has already changed? While, on the global scene, states maintain their leading role in the mobilization of social and territorial histories, on the local scale, regions, neighbourhoods and parishes have changed. Citizens and communities too: they latch on to heritage to express an unprecedented range of belongings that no law seems to be able to take measures to contain, often to the discontent of...

Most of what we experience as heritage emerges into conscious recognition through a complex mixture of political and ideological filters, including nationalism.  In these processes, through a variety of devices (museums, scholarly research, consumer reproduction, etc.), dualistic classifications articulate a powerful hierarchy of value and significance.  In particular, the tangible-intangible pair, given legitimacy by such international bodies as UNESCO, reproduces a selective ordering of cul...

Movement, stillness, and creation will be combined during this walk as participants are encouraged to attune themselves to the environment through conscious emplacement. We will awaken our sensory awareness by experimenting with deep listening, observing impermanence and slow walking. Weather permitting, participants will also be invited to create a cyanotype photogram with found materials. An in-situ photogram is an image made in collaboration with the environment and enhances our a...

"What does heritage change?" is a multifaceted  question to which the answer(s) are in primary respects related to real-life negotiations among different groups of citizens, cultures, races, ethnic groups, sexual identities, and social classes about received, official and/or widely accepted or accomodated intangible attributes, cultural traditions, historic monuments, buildings, and other transmitted or revived historical legacies. Heritage designated by and for whom, for what motivations, an...

Le patrimoine fait aujourd’hui l’objet d’attentions autant que d’agressions et de destructions. Cela peut s’expliquer par les difficultés de son identification ou de sa conservation. Cela peut plus profondément s’expliquer parce que, dès le départ, il célébre un événement ou conserve une mémoire qui peut être ou devenir une source de dissenssions et de conflits politiques. Enfin, sa reconnaissance suscite des gains économiques pour les uns mais des pertes pour les autres. Mais peut-être...
