Evidence and Narrative in Architectural History

This panel at the Chicago Architecture Biennial brings together speakers who will introduce methodological questions in writing architectural history. The topics include the role of visual evidence, legal evidence, narrative structure, and counter-narratives in the history of architecture. Speakers include: Claire Zimmerman, University of Michigan; Michael Osman, UCLA; Daniel Abramson, Boston University; Zeynep Celik Alexander, University of Toronto; Timothy Hyde, MIT

This event is organized by the Aggregate Architectural History Collaborative, a group dedicated to advancing research and education in the history and theory of architecture. We generate, work-shop, present, and publish innovative scholarship from multidisciplinary perspectives. We are particularly interested in work that foregrounds the multiple ways in which one can understand architecture’s relationship to the world. The event is also supported by the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning, University of Michigan.

Fee and open to the public. Sept. 16, 2017; 10 a.m. - noon; room 327, 37 S. Wabash Ave. (Sharp Building, SAIC), Chicago, Ill.
