For those of you who missed the original post, or who had forgotten, or who haven’t checked out the handy Preservation in Mississippi calendar (surely no one could fit into all those categories at once?), the Millsaps Continuing Education class about Mississippi’s architectural history is starting this evening at 6:00. Here’s the description of the class from the Millsaps website:
Architectural History of Mississippi
Instructor: Todd Sanders
Cost: $50; Tues., April 7-28, 6:00-7:30 p.m.; 4 weeks.
This new course will be a detailed discussion of the architectural history of the state of Mississippi. Beginning with the earliest surviving structures of the first permanent inhabitants, 1699-1800, the instructor will follow that with the arrival of high style architecture, 1800-1875. Next, he will discuss the years during which Mississippi moved toward the mainstream, 1875-1945. The last lecture will focus on Mississippi’s participation in the modern movement in American architecture since World War II. A brief discussion of the historic preservation movement and where it is today in Mississippi will also be included.
Please note: 0.6 CEU for teachers is available for full attendance of this class. An additional $10 will be charged for the CEU certificate when the class ends.
