This 6-credit course provides students an immersion experience in the field recording of the built environment and cultural landscapes and an opportunity to learn how to write history literally “from the ground up.” This year, we will focus on the ethics of ecological stewardship and historic preservation practiced in the Historic Water Tower Neighborhood (HWTN) of Milwaukee. The neighborhood’s history dates back to the days when the City expanded northwards along the lake. The area has many historic and designated buildings, a number of residential historic districts, an extensive park system, bluffs of Lake Michigan and one business historical district. The National Register of Historic Places has created five separate districts within HWTN’s boundaries and named several notable buildings separately.

The five-week course calendar covers a broad array of academic skills. Workshops during Week 1 will focus on photography, measured drawings, documentation and technical drawings; no prior experience is necessary. Week 2 will include workshops on oral history interviewing and digital ethnography. Week 3 is centered on mapping and archival research. Week 4 and 5 will be devoted to producing final reports and documentaries. Students will learn how to “read” buildings within their urban material, soical, ecological and cultural contexts, create reports on historic buildings and cultural landscapes and produce multimedia documentaries. Nationally recognized faculty directing portions of this school include Jeffrey E. Klee, Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, Michael H. Frisch, Professor and Senior Research Scholar, University at Buffalo, Jasmine Alinder, Associate Professor of History, University of Wisconsin Milwaukee, Michael Gordon, Professor of History, University of Wisconsin Milwaukee, and Matthew Jarosz, Associate Adjunct Professor of Architecture and Historic Preservation, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

Group travel, documentary equipment, and supplies, will be provided, but students must be able to fund their own meals and modest lodging accommodations (if they are from out of town).
