Dora Epstein Jones / SCI-Arc

Gui Auditorium / Knowlton Hall
November 5, 2014 - 5:30pm


Dora Epstein Jones will present the lecture "Loaded" in Knowlton Hall’s Gui Auditorium at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, November 5. The lecture is free and open to the public. The sequel to "Stacked," "Loaded" is a short, happy talk about our bad, beautiful bricks. Epstein Jones is a theorist and teacher of architectural culture. Her work mainly focuses on the discipline of architecture, and includes interrogations on the discipline's boundaries and operations through examinations of tectonics, practice and pedagogy, as well as (generally external) concerns such as gender, sex, mobility and criticality. She has published in log, Arch'it, ArcCa and ACSA, edited the Zago/dA installation book and Mechudzu: New Rethorics for Architecture, as well as written essays for publications by J,P:A, Office dA, UCLA Architecture and anthologies on gender and sex in architecture.

Epstein Jones holds a Ph.D. in Architectural History, Theory and Criticism and an M.A. in Urban Planning from UCLA. She is a past research fellow of the Luce Foundation, the UC Regents, the Getty Research Institute and the AIA. She has been a long-time collaborator with Jones, Partners: Architecture, and has often been a member of their exhibition and installation design team.

Epstein Jones is the past Coordinator of Cultural Studies, a department she helped organize and name, a professor at SCI-Arc for the last 10 years, and the current Coordinator of General Studies.
