Advanced Topics in Modern Architecture: Reconstructing the Settler Colonial History of American Architecture

ARC 576/MOD 502/ART 598

Info tab content
This course develops a settler colonial history of "American Architecture." Key texts from Settler Colonial Theory, American Studies, Critical Race Theory and Whiteness Studies provide the intellectual basis for reinterpreting architectural case studies and texts across time, from the late 19th to the early 21st century. Students must develop a principled critique of the whiteness of canonical historiographies of American architecture and mine local and digital archives to recover the lost contributions of people of color.
