DISCUSSIONS Series Lecture: Patricia A. Morton

March 27, 2019
Busch Hall, Rm. 100

Patricia A. Morton, Associate Professor of architectural history and chair of the urban studies minor at the University of California, Riverside, will deliver a lecture titled Paying for the Public Life as part of DISCUSSIONS in Architectural History and Theory.

Morton has lectured and published widely on architectural history and race, gender, and identity. She is the author of Hybrid Modernities: Architecture and Representation at the 1931 International Colonial Exposition in Paris (MIT Press; Japanese edition, Brücke). Her current project, Paying for the Public Life, focuses on written and built work by architect Charles W. Moore and his contemporaries, and examines the ways American architects negotiated a contested postwar public realm in creating an architecture and urbanism responsive to contemporary society. She is past editor of the Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians and current second vice president of the Society of Architectural Historians.
