The Docomomo US Northern California (NOCA) Chapter has named Shelby Kendrick as the recipient of the 2022 Docomomo US/NOCA Symposium Grant. 

Shelby Kendrick is a doctoral student of architecture at UC Berkeley in the History, Theory, and Society program. Prior to her pursuit of a career in academia, Shelby was an environmental analyst and cultural resources specialist in California. These experiences inspired her academic interests in historic preservation, history and theory of modern architecture, and political ecology. 

Her research investigates the historical sedimentation of Modernism and California’s environmental and preservation movements. She anticipates conducting case studies in Northern California to identify spatiotemporal and sociological impacts of public participation in development and historic preservation processes, as mandated by the California Environmental Quality Act.

Originally from Houma, Louisiana, Shelby obtained her BA in History from the University of New Orleans before moving to California in 2014. In the following three years, she graduated from Sacramento State’s Public History program and completed numerous internships in museum studies, archives, cultural resource management, and historic preservation. Shelby currently holds a position as Graduate Student Researcher for UC Berkeley’s Future Histories Lab. She is also an editor, and the incoming co-editor-in-chief, for the university’s architecture journal, Room One Thousand.

As the 2022 Symposium Grant recipient, Shelby will receive a $2500 grant to participate in the Docomomo US 2022 National Symposium in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The grant will cover related expenses, including registration fees, travel, and lodging expenses during the Symposium.
