Associate Professor Nicole Rudolph Participates in UK Conference

News


In June 2017, Associate Professor Nicole Rudolph,Ph.D.,  was an invited participant in the conference “Fantasy in Reality: Architecture, Representation, Reproduction” at the Courtauld Institute of Art in London, UK. The Courtauld Institute of Art is the major center for the study of the history and conservation of art and architecture in the United Kingdom. The Courtauld ranked first in the United Kingdom for History and History of Art in The Guardian’s 2018 University Guide. 

Dr. Rudolph presented a paper called “Fantastic Models and Their Discontents: How Spectacular Architecture Shaped Domestic Space Expectations in Postwar France.” In the paper, she demonstrated how the model homes shown at annual French exhibitions raised specific expectations for the modern mass home in the 1950s and ’60s; such expectations then contributed to popular residential discontent with the new, modern high-rise, high-density public housing built to solve the postwar housing crisis. Dr. Rudolph’s research focuses on the history of French public housing.
