Preston H. Thomas Memorial Lectures

Paulo Tavares: Plantation Deserts, October 26

This semester's Preston H. Thomas Memorial Lectures combine with an elective seminar in the History of Architecture and Urban Development, taught by Assistant Professor Samia Henni. The series and seminar theme centers around various histories and interpretations of the world's major deserts—both hot and cold. Scholars, curators, artists, and architects are invited to discuss their unique perspective and a current research project in order to offer a multiplicity of readings of the desert. Together, the series aims to stage an intersectional understanding of the desert's spatial possibilities.

A Message from our Dean

At AAP, we share a commitment to doing things we do not yet know we can do — trusting in processes of investigation and imagination. And though we are now dispersed at a time when we may feel we need each other most, I have complete confidence that we will continue to come together in new ways — to act on our most caring and creative instincts, in solidarity with one another across the country and the world… Read the Dean’s letter.
