Architectural History Professor Receives SESAH Best Book of the Year Award

“In this prodigious study of architecture, literature and dreams, Nathaniel Walker takes his readers on a marvel-filled tour of Victorian visions of suburban Utopia and shows that the line dividing ‘real’ architecture and fantasy is thin indeed,” the 2021 SESAH Publication Awards Committee says. “Walker reviews a plethora of strange, wonderful and terrifying texts, images and buildings that represent the dreams of Utopian visionaries.”

Architectural History Professor Receives SESAH Best Book of the Year Award At the Southeast Chapter of the Society of Architectural Historians (SESAH) annual conference earlier this month, Nathaniel Robert Walker, associate professor of architectural history, received the Best Book of the Year Award for his book, Victorian Visions of Suburban Utopia, Abandoning Babylon, be...

Our Creative Conversations talk series returns this week! 🗨️

On Wednesday 28th April, 7pm, Dr Rebekah Compton wil be in conversation with Dr Claudia Tobin on depictions of Venus and 'verdant virtues'.

Venus is a goddess of nature, who resides in green landscapes responsive to her powers over spring and regeneration. This talk explores the challenges for 15th century artists of using green pigments, and will include a demonstration of how these copper based pigments transform into paint.

Dear Seniors,

On behalf of the Department of Art and Architectural History and the Program in Historic Preservation and Community Planning we very enthusiastically invite you to join us Friday afternoon at 4 pm to celebrate you with a toast (unfortunately, under the circumstances, that means BYOB). We are very sad we can't do this in person, but we can't let you "go" without a celebration. If you feel like wearing your white dresses and white tuxes (probably not...) please do so, but at least let us join together. Wear whatever you want, as long as you wear something.

Remember, 4 pm, EST on Friday May 8.

See you then!
