Architecture and Architectural History

This two-day conference aims to sample how the work of architectural historians, and contemporary architectural scholarship more broadly, relates to the analytical categories and concepts belonging to the Marxist tradition, and to open out new lines of research and theoretical enquiry. There are four themes (ideological formations, labour and its histories, infrastructure and environment, and building the racial regime of modernity) nine speakers, three respondents in a roundtable, and an artist's film viewing. The conference is free and no registration is required.
