Works-in-Progress Happy Hour
Professor Stella Nair, Art History, UCLA
“The Gendered Landscapes of Inca Architecture”
CMRS is hosting twice-monthly Works-in-Progress Happy Hours to promote intellectual exchange and collegiality while most of us are continuing to work and learn remotely. The Happy Hours are open to UCLA faculty and graduate students and consist of a short informal presentation followed by open discussion.
Stella Nair’s scholarship focuses on the built environment of indigenous communities in the Americas and is shaped by her interests in construction technology, spatial theory, material culture studies, landscape transformations, cross-cultural exchange, and hemispheric networks. Trained as an architect and architectural historian, Nair has conducted fieldwork in Bolivia, Mexico, Peru, and the United States, with ongoing projects in the South Central Andes.
Open to UCLA graduate students and faculty. Please write to Erin Romo, Program Coordinator at the Center for Medieval & Renaissance Studies to register for the Zoom link.
