Expired Expanding Agency: Women, Race, and Modern Architecture

1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
UCD Quinn School of Business

Expanding Agency is a European Research Council-funded project that focuses on telling new stories about how women and ethnic minorities have shaped the built environment. The re-erection of the Belgian Pavilion for the 1939 World’s Fair in New York between 1941 and 1949 on the campus of Virginia Union University, in Richmond, Virginia, is an example that intertwines the history of Belgium and its colony in the Congo with the nascent civil rights movement in the United States.
