Reception to follow

Edward Eigen is Associate Professor of Architecture and Landscape Architecture at the Harvard Graduate School of Design.

A historian of the long nineteenth century in the European and Anglo-American contexts, Eigen focuses on relationships in and between humanistic and scholarly traditions and the natural sciences and allied practices of knowledge production. He recently published On Accident (MIT Press, 2018), a book of essays that roam across uncertain territory in search of sunken forests, unclassifiable islands, inflammable skies, plagiarized tabernacles, and other phenomena missing from architectural history.

The UIC School of Architecture lecture series is free and open to the public. All lectures take place in Gallery 1100 A+DS, 845 W Harrison St, at 5:30pm, unless otherwise noted.
