Clark University will host acclaimed architectural and cultural historian Mabel O. Wilson for “Race/Memory/Public Space,” a free, public lecture on the current and historical intersections of race, architecture, and the public realm, on Friday, November 3, at Noon, in the Higgins Lounge, 2nd floor of Dana Commons, 36 Maywood St.

The lecture is part of the Higgins School of Humanities’ dialogue symposium “Common Pursuits/Public Good” which considers how the arts and humanities contribute to the public good.

Wilson is Nancy and George E. Rupp Professor of Architecture at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAPP). She is author of “Negro Building: Black Americans in the World of Fairs and Museums,” “Begin with the Past: Building the National Museum of African American History and Culture,” and the forthcoming “Building Race and Nation.”

Wilson also co-directs GSAPP’s Global Africa Lab and the Project on Spatial Politics and is founder of Who Builds Your Architecture? an advocacy initiative that examines issues surrounding labor, architecture, and globalization.

This event is part of the African American Intellectual Culture Series. It is co-sponsored by the Higgins School of Humanities, the Office of the Provost, Clark’s concentration in Africana studies, and the Department of Political Science through the Chester Bland Fund.
