Vimalin Rujivacharakul, Architectural Historian at the University of
Delaware, guest lectures on “Architectural-ized Asia: Asian Architecture and
the Mapping of the World.” Her presentation on relocating the world’s historical
center takes a provocative view of what might be uncovered if the center of the
architectural history of the world shifted from Europe to Asia. The
presentation is from 1:30 – 3:30 p.m. on November 1 in Lemieux Library
College of Arts and Sciences History Professors David Madsen , and Tom Taylor join
Rujivacharakul for panel discussion on “How
‘Asia’ and ‘Eurasia”’ Have Been Envisioned Within and Without Asia, from the
Antiquities to Today.” The discussion
takes place from 1:30 – 3:30 p.m. on November 2 in Hunthausen 110
“Dr. Rujivacharakul is a
scholar, researcher, and authority on architectural history,” said
Pigott-McCone Endowed Chair H. Hazel Hahn (above). “She takes an interdisciplinary
approach to incorporate cultural anthropology and intellectual history.”
Both events are open to
the public and are made possible by funding from the the Pigott-McCone Endowed Chair. Seattle University President Stephen Sundborg, S.J. , awarded the Pigott-McCone Chair in Humanities to History
Professor H. Hazel Hahn for 2010-12.
