COVID and Contagion: Histories of Architecture and Medicine

January 28, 2021

The entwined stories of contagion, illness, race, gender, poverty, and reputed immorality have dominated the discourse among historians of medicine for decades. Architectural historians, too, have analyzed the way that buildings influence disease vectors and therapies. Whether in a dense urban neighborhood, a crowded tenement, or an under-ventilated nursing home, inequality in medical outcomes can often be traced to the configuration of space. The path to healing, as patients, doctors, nurses, and caregivers can attest, may be hindered or improved by architecture. Participants in this roundtable (including a healthcare architect, architectural historians, and a historian of medicine) will consider key concepts related to the current global health emergency, focusing on how COVID-19 has affected their research and pedagogy. Please join us for an open-ended discussion of the role of architecture in the post-pandemic future.

Carla Yanni, professor of art history at Rutgers University-New Brunswick, and Second Vice President of the Society of Architectural Historians will moderate the discussion.

Thursday, January 28
11:00 am–12:30 pm CST
Free and open to the public
