Visiting scholar | Mark Jarzombek
Global Arts and Cultures welcomes scholar Mark Jarzombek, who will explore the consequences of the erasure of chieftain societies, which were wiped out when European colonists rose to prominence hundreds of years ago. Built on the bedrock of clans and family units, the chieftain world that so prospered across the globe from the end of the first millennium CE is for all practical purposes gone. Jarzombek will consider not only our ability to understand how we got to our rapacious present, but also how we can imagine different collective futures. At stake is not just the problem of our general positioning in the contemporary world, but also the question of how we understand architecture in the global present.
