Read “Bruce Clark on ‘Athens: City of Wisdom'” in The Usonian

“Cities are, by definition, the places where people find creative solutions to the dilemma of living together.”

I’m pleased to publish one last (!) interview this year—this one with the amazingly erudite Bruce Clark, whose new book “Athens: City of Wisdom” tells the story of the fabled city all the way from antiquity to present.

Do check out the interview and the book, which might just be a perfect last-minute stocking stuffer for your friendly neighborhood history buff or philhellene. Thanks for reading, and happy holidays!

Reflecting on the 2021 AHRA Conference: “Region”

I’m grateful for having had the opportunity to present my paper, “Southwestern Fantasy: The Strange Case of Pueblo Revival Architecture in New Mexico,” for the 2021 Architectural Humanities Research Association (AHRA) conference “Region” at Loughborough University, UK.

Though the conference was virtual, I’m very glad for being able to “attend” and learn from so many exciting scholars in the field of architecture and urban studies. You can browse from a list of the conference’s abstracts here.
