2019 Barbara Miller Lane Lecture
The Department of the Growth and Structure of Cities at Bryn Mawr College will hold the 2019 Barbara Miller Lane Lecture to be delivered by Sarah Lopez on Thursday March 21.
Sarah Lopez is a built environment historian, as well as a migration scholar. Her research focuses on the impact of migrant remittances on the architecture and landscape of rural Mexico and urban USA. Her talk is titled "The Architecture of Migrant Detention and the Spatial Imagination" based on her new research on the architecture of immigrant detention facilities in Texas.
This lecture series was established by colleagues, alums, students and friends of Professor Lane on her retirement and seeks to highlight scholars in architectural and urban history whose work relates to her research and teaching interests. Her important legacy in the field has been in German and American architecture as well as a deep methodological concern for the social and political contexts that have shaped the built environment.
The event will be held at Carpenter Library on Bryn Mawr College's campus. The lecture is open to the public.
