Workshop Description: By 2100, sea levels in the Caribbean are projected to rise from a few inches to many feet. Heritage sites, cultural resources, and historic coastal communities across the region will be threatened or lost. Keeping History Above Water: Caribbean is a one-day workshop that will bring engage heritage specialists to examine the threat of short-term flooding due to storm surge and long-term inundation caused by rising seas. The workshop will focus on adaptation strategies, mitigation, and other measures for significant sites, historic buildings, and cultural urban landscapes. This will be the fifth iteration of Keeping History Above Water and is organized by the University of Florida Historic Preservation Program in collaboration with the Newport Restoration Foundation.
