  • Pigott-McCone Events Focus on Asia

    October 27, 2010

    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 122. 

    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.
