Assessing Significance and Integrity in the National Register Process: Questions of Race, Class, and Gender

By Carroll Van West

Carroll Van West examines the pervasive but often forgotten influence of race, class,and gender in historic interpretation of historic landscapes and sites. Even within gendered spaces, the distinct difference that race and ethnicity play in determining historic treatment is examined. This Chapter in Preservation of What, for Whom? also discusses these variables in the National Register of Historic Places.
