Patience Essah Africana Studies Lecture Series

Views on "Blackness":  An Architectural Discourse

Dr. Carla Jackson Bell, Director of Multicultural Affairs, College of Architecture, Design, and Construction, Auburn University

Date and Time:  Thursday, September 17 at 3:30 - 4:15 p.m.

Location:  Caroline Marshall Draughon Auditorium, Ground Floor, Ralph Brown Draughon Library.

Based on her recent book, Space Unveiled:  Cultures in the Design Studio, Dr. Carla Jackson Bell, Director of Multicultural Affairs and a faculty member in the College of Architecture, Design, and Construction, will discuss why it is pivotal for students to understand the centrality of culture, gender and space in order to create culturally responsive design interventions.  Drawing on critical discourse theory and her substantial experience in introducing controversial issues in modern architecture, design and construction education, Dr. Bell will explore how professors can respond when students ask uncomfortable questions about race, gender, and cultural issues.

Refreshments and conversation to follow the presentation.

Co-sponsored by:  Patience Essah Africana Studies Lecture Series, Ralph Brown Draughon Library, and Special Collections and Archives Department.
