Assistant Professor Claire Zimmerman takes part in Princeton University symposium on Teaching Architecture, Practicing Pedagogy

Taubman College Assistant Professor of Architecture and Professor of Art History Claire Zimmerman will participate in a Princeton University School of Architecture graduate student symposium on Teaching Architecture, Practicing Pedagogy on Feb. 12, 2011, in Princeton, NJ. The symposium is dedicated to new research on the history of architectural education during the 20th century.

Education has persisted as a fundamental facet of architectural culture throughout a spectrum of aesthetic, scientific, ideological, institutional and political upheavals. Pervading the realms of both professional and experimental practices, and functioning as a potent medium for the dissemination of ideas and methods, architectural pedagogy's multiple guises across different historical and international contexts offer a diverse range of lenses for critically examining the discipline's continuing transformations. Recognizing the current emergence of much new research on the history of architectural education during the 20th century, this symposium seeks to create a platform for this expanding realm of scholarship.
