Dr. Dell Upton delivers the Fourth NIAF Pellegri Distinguished Lecture

Ulrich Recital Hall, Tawes Hall
Thursday, April 05, 2018 - 3:30 PM

Dr. Dell Upton, Professor of Architectural History and Chair of the Department of Art History at UCLA, will deliver the fourth annual NIAF Pellegri Distinguished Lecture.  His talk is entitled "The Many Faces of Classical Architecture in America."

Upton is professor of architectural history and chair of the Department of Art History at the University of California, Los Angeles. Previously he taught for many years at the University of California, Berkeley, and then at the University of Virginia. He was trained at Colgate University and at Brown University. Upton’s first book, Holy Things and Profane: Anglican Parish Churches in Colonial Virginia (1986) won awards from the Society of Architectural Historians, the Vernacular Architectural Forum, and the American Studies Association. Since that time, his research and publications have ranged widely, from the ancient temple complex at Baalbek, Lebanon, through early nineteenth-century American cities, to African-American churches and cemeteries in the rural South. His most recent book is What Can and Can’t Be Said: Race, Uplift, and Monument Building in the Contemporary South (2015). In 2019, Oxford University Press will publish a second edition of Upton’s Architecture in the United States.
