Dr. Garman also serves on the advisory committee for the Office of Academic Grants and Conferences and the ad hoc Wetmore Committee and is the vice chairman of Newport's Historic District Commission. Dr. James Garman, "I was trained as an archaeologist, and that remains my major research interest. I study the archaeology of capitalism, and the material ways in which our present structures of race, class, and gender have developed over time. In my other role as preservationist, I'm especially interested in the "tear-down" trend, or the destruction of vernacular housing in favor of McMansions."
