  2. Instruments

    Zeynep Çelik Alexander, John J. May

  3. Before Theory

    Lucia Allais, John Harwood

    This project is interested in detecting how the trademarks of our field—interdisciplinarity, concern with "method," and engagement with social, economic and political issues—were prepared by architectural historians earlier in the twentieth century.

  4. Evidence + Narrative in Architectural History

    Daniel M. Abramson, Zeynep Çelik Alexander, Michael Osman

    How do architectural historians use evidence and narrative? How can reconsideration of these lead to new histories, other evidence, counter-narratives, and re-imagined agencies?
