Join Carla Yanni for a stroll down the history of the American campus, from the 18th century to the present. The richly illustrated Living on Campus: An Architectural History of the American Dormitory examines the architecture of dormitories in the United States from the eighteenth century to 1968. Carla Yanni focuses on the dormitory as a place of exclusion as much as a site of fellowship, and considers the uncertain future of residence halls in the age of distance learning.
Carla Yanni is a professor of architectural history in the Art History Department at Rutgers University.
