Author’s Talk: Living on Campus by Carla Yanni
Join Carla Yanni for a stroll down the history of the American campus, from the 18th century to the present.
The richly illustrated Living on Campus: An Architectural History of the American Dormitory examines the architecture of dormitories in the United States from the eighteenth century to 1968, highlighting the opinions of architects, professors, deans, and students. Carla Yanni focuses on the dormitory as a place of exclusion as much as a site of fellowship, and considers the uncertain future of residence halls in the age of distance learning.
Carla Yanni is a professor of architectural history in the Art History Department at Rutgers University. She is the author of two other books: The Architecture of Madness: Insane Asylums in the United States, and Nature’s Museums: Victorian Science and the Architecture of Display. In 2019, she was a recipient of the university-wide Faculty Scholar Teacher Award from Rutgers.
