On January 28, 2021, Nancy Moses virtually presented the Springfield Township Historical Society annual History in Motion program, on her recent publication Fakes, Forgeries and Frauds, published earlier this year by the Rowman & Littlefield Publishing Group.

Moses, who is chairperson of the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, will discuss how cities could be considered “fake” if they have been rebuilt and provide the framework for what the historical society does for preservation and what the preservation community does in the face of economic development and the tearing down of houses and how visual integrity can be preserved.

Moses, who lives in Philadelphia, has a consulting firm, Nancy Moses Planning & Development, which produces strategic, fundraising marketing, and feasibility studies that help nonprofits and government chances of success. A former visiting scholar at the American University in Rome, she is a former director of the Atwater Kent Museum, and has held senior position at the National Endowment for the Humanities, University of Pennsylvania Fels School of Government. In addition to Fakes, Forgeries and Frauds, she is the author of Lost in the Museum: Buried Treasures and the Stories They Tell, (2008) and Stolen, Smuggled, Sold: on the Hunt for Cultural Treasures (2015).
