Marta Gutman of CUNY presents on «How to Design a Junior High School»: The Odyssey School in Berkeley, California and I.S. 201 in New York City's Harlem

Room 4102

Reception and refreshments to follow.

Professor Gutman seeks to discover how in different historical circumstances Americans have harnessed opportunities in the built environment to make better lives for themselves and their fellow citizens—especially women for children and children for themselves. In her writing and teaching, she examines ordinary buildings and neighborhoods, the history of cities, and issues of gender, class, race, and childhood as they play out in everyday spaces and social life of cities. Her current research focus is public architecture for city children. Like all of Gutman’s work, her new book A City for Children: Women, Architecture, and the Charitable Landscapes of Oakland, 1850-1950 (University of Chicago Press, 2014) promises to inform current public policy debates, not just about Oakland, but also, by extension cities more generally. Times Higher Ed named A City for Children a book of the year, calling it “a monumental achievement.” Her new book project assesses architecture, education, and childhood in the United States during the Civil Rights Movement. Prof. Gutman also co-edits Buildings & Landscapes for the Vernacular Architecture Forum.
