CRP professor Michael Tomlan presented two lectures in early December. The first, “The Living and the Dead: Vijaganara Protected and Transformed,” was part of the fifth annual Kannada Vrinda at the Houston Museum of Fine Arts, and described his work related to the World Heritage Site at Hampi, the last capital of the last great Hindu kingdom of Vijayanagar in southern India. “A Sense of Identity” was the Gordon Cherry Memorial Lecture at the International Planning History Society, sponsored by IIT and the School of Planning and Architecture in Delhi, India. Tomlan will present lectures on preservation at the University of Pittsburgh and the University of Florida in February and March.
