Abstract

In this thesis I discuss the relationship between historical preservation and national identity. I examine five sites in three countries: India, Pakistan, and the United States. Each country has a different way of approaching preservation. I examine laws as a way to better grasp an understanding of why preservation is practiced in each country. I use a theory that combines approaches from Thomas King and David Lowenthal as a means to take each site through the preservation process. Ultimately, the analysis suggests what each country saves and how the site in turn helps project a national identity.
