Assistant Professor Robert Adams speaks about passive labor and urbanism in China as part of CCS Lecture Series
Robert Adams, Assistant Professor of Architecture, will give a presentation, “Incidents of Genetic Mutation, Spatial Anomaly and Accidental Architecture in Urban China,” on April 12, 2012, as part of the Center for Chinese Studies (CCS) Noon Lecture Series. His lecture will focus on the passive labor and background structures of urbanism that situate architecture as a deeply relational cultural construct in the context of China refracted in the world. The talk will draw out parallels between genomics and regulatory sequencing that similarly, as in the complex formation of genetic matter, urban formation is punctuated by spontaneous mutations and genetic deletions within the social body rendered in space.
The lecture starts at noon at the School of Social Work Building, Room 1635. For more information: lsa.umich.edu/umich/v/index.jsp?vgnextoid=f86ea3d1abd4d210VgnVCM100000a3b1d38dRCRD&vgnextchannel=9dcdefce9b1fa210VgnVCM100000a3b1d38dRCRD
