The USC School of Architecture's Fall 2017 Lecture Series will open with a lecture by Dean Milton Curry.
Milton S. F. Curry is dean of the USC School of Architecture. He was associate dean for academic affairs and strategic initiatives at the University of Michigan Taubman College of Architecture & Planning from 2010 to 2017. Curry was project director of the Michigan/Mellon Project on Egalitarianism and the founder/director of the Michigan Architecture Prep architecture enrichment program for high school students in Detroit. Previously, Curry was associate professor of architecture at Cornell, and he has held teaching positions at Harvard University Graduate School of Design and Arizona State University.
With a consistent interrogation of urbanism, modernity, and racialized thinking, Curry has amassed a body of work that sets out to imagine an ‘architecture race theory.’ His writings and lectures, edited volumes, and creative works address race as part of the project of modernity and thus interconnected to its philosophical and aesthetic underpinnings and imaginings—including modern architecture/urbanism, social constructions of identity, and notions of the enlightenment and egalitarianism.
Lectures are free and open to the public. Parking is available through Gate 1 off of Exposition Blvd.
