    Bringing the Past to the Present Contemporary Issues at Historic Sites & Museums is an AASLH Continuing Education recorded webinar. This webinar is about how historic sites and museums can bring contemporary issues to light at their sites. This event is presented by Lauren Zalut and Annie Anderson. Are you interested in connecting your site’s history with a current issue? Or wondering how you can use your site to spark dialogue and encourage visitors to take action? Or to navigate sensitive conversations with co-workers and visitors who might be resistant to discussing contemporary topics? This interactive webinar will explore how historic sites and museums can bring contemporary issues to light at their sites. Using Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site as a case study, speakers Lauren Zalut and Annie Anderson will discuss their work linking the past and the present through the stories of incarceration. The presenters will discuss their site’s progression from solely interpreting the past to interpreting both historic and current events. They will also provide participants with a toolkit of actionable steps and resources that can be scaled up or down, depending on the size of each participant’s site.

This webinar is about the various reports and documents that organizations will want to compile and keep on the historic structures and landscapes they own or manage. This event is presented by Rachel Leibowitz. If it’s true that “knowledge is power,” then organizations that own or manage historic structures and landscapes need all the knowledge they can get.

Hear guest speaker Rachel Leibowitz, Illinois Historic Preservation Agency, discuss how to find someone to research and write Historic Structures and other reports, existing studies you may not be aware of, and the types of information that can be gleaned from these documents.

    Leibowitz is the Manager of the Preservation Services Division of the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency and the Deputy State Historic Preservation Officer. She has served as a historian for Federal Programs at the Texas Historical Commission in Austin, and also has worked in two Chicago architecture firms and in the City of Chicago’s Historic Preservation Division. Leibowitz has taught courses in cultural landscape preservation and landscape history at the University of Texas at Austin and at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

    Paid and unpaid staff, volunteers, and board members from organizations of all sizes will benefit from this recording. Participants enrolled in AASLH’s StEPs program will benefit from a discussion on how they can meet performance indicators related to the topic.

    This webinar is part of the StEPs Lab series of continuing education offered to both StEPs program participants and all others interested in historic preservation. This is StEPs Lab 4.

    Applying what you learn in a Lab to your policies and practices helps your organization make meaningful progress. The more progress you make, the more boxes you can check off in the StEPs workbook. The more boxes you check off, the more Bronze, Silver, and Gold certificates your organization earns. And that translates into more credibility, more support, and an organization that is a valuable asset to its community for many more years to come.
