Description:

Entangled Urbanisms: History, Place, and the Shaping of Cities

The Department of Art History at Northwestern University, in conjunction with the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts, will hold a symposium on Friday, May 18, 2018, on the topic of entangled urbanisms. The scholarly gathering seeks to examine methodological challenges and opportunities presented by the study of the interconnectedness of cities via comparative analyses and approaches. Papers will touch upon case studies in Africa, Asia, and Europe, as well as the Americas from the sixteenth century to the present. The symposium takes as its inspiration the innovative research on Paris and Chicago by David Van Zanten, who will provide a response to the symposium at its end.

Organized by Professors Jesús Escobar, Jun Hu, and Ayala Levin
