Leading Chicago architectural historians debate how global frameworks offer new perspectives on the city’s architectural and urban history, and, in turn, how the history of Chicago suggests new methods for scholarship on the built environment. This roundtable, organized in conjunction with the Global Architectural History Teaching Collaborative (GAHTC), brings together historians from major Chicago universities to reposition the city in a global context. Each participant will select and discuss one example of architecture, infrastructure, or urbanism. A discussion follows, led by Mark Jarzombek of MIT and Vikramāditya Prakāsh of the University of Washington.
