Keynote Speaker: Eve Blau, Harvard University Graduate School of Design

Eve Blau is Adjunct Professor of the History and Theory of Urban Form at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design. Her research engages a range of issues in urban and architectural history and theory and the productive intersection of urbanism and media. She is Co-Principal Investigator of the Harvard Mellon Urban Initiative, an interdisciplinary cross-school initiative supported by funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. It brings together scholars and resources from across Harvard to foster interdisciplinary urban study through collaborative research and teaching, and by developing innovative cross-disciplinary methodologies that integrate digital technologies to bring together the perspectives of the design disciplines, the humanities, and the social sciences. In 2015 Blau received the Victor Adler-State Prize of the Republic of Austria in recognition of her innovative scholarship and contributions to the history of social movements. Before Harvard, Blau was Curator of Exhibitions and Publications at the Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montreal, and Editor of the Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians.
