News from our friends to the south: The University of Oregon’s Historic Preservation Program is offering a summer conservation field school in 2011 in Croatia. The Croatia Conservation Field School offers a unique look at the vernacular building culture of Croatia’s Central Dalmatian Coast. Students will explore 16th through 18th century villages, while learning the history of the area, documenting and analyzing important structures, and participating in a hands-on building project.
For detailed information and who’s eligible to apply, see the field school’s website. Deadline to apply is February 1, 2011.
Closer to home, U of O’s Pacific Northwest Preservation Field School will be in Olympic National Park in the summer of 2011. In 2010, the field school took place at the Old Idaho State Penitentiary! For more info, check out their website.
