Urban China Lecture Series featuring Cole Roskam

April 9 @ 8:30 am 10:00 am

Speaker:  Cole Roskam, Professor of Architectural History, Department of Architecture, University of Hong Kong

Dr. Roskham’s research and teaching engage topics in 19th and 20th century and contemporary architectural and urban history as well as theory, with a focus on China. He is particularly interested in understanding architecture’s role in mediating moments of transnational interaction and exchange between China and other parts of the world.

His books include An Improvised City: Architecture and Governance in Shanghai, 1843-1937 (University of Washington Press, 2019) and Designing Reform: Architecture in the People’s Republic of China, 1970-1992 (Yale University Press, 2021). His third book, Hong Kong: Uncertain City (Hong Kong University Press, forthcoming), examines the history of Hong Kong’s built environment in relation to various forms of crisis.

More information coming soon.
