Change Over Time is pleased to announce the latest in our series of COT Dialogues to celebrate the launch of issue 8.1 Gentrification and Heritage Conservation. Join us for a panel discussion moderated by issue co-editors Caroline Cheong and Kecia Fong. Panelists will examine the gentrification/conservation nexus and prevailing assumptions about the causal relationships between the two. The discussion will address the challenges of balancing preservation and equity in rapidly regenerating historic environments and will reflect on how these tensions have re-ignited debates about the scope of the profession and the mission of its civic promise.

Registration is required by March 7, 2019.
