Carl Lounsbury, PhD, Lecturer at Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, Williamsburg, Virginia
Lounsbury’s lecture will consider how English colonists reworked their building practices in response to regional conditions in the American colonies, especially during the 18th century. He will consider how English technologies and building forms changed in response to new materials as well as contact with other colonists and indigenous peoples.

Co-sponsored with UWM Buildings-Landscapes-Cultures Initiative and the Department of Art History, the Department of Landscape Architecture, and the Material Culture Program at UW-Madison. For more information, contact Assistant Professor Arijit Sen at sena@uwm.edu.
