Mireille Roddier Presents at the 9th International AHRA Conference

Associate Professor of Architecture Mireille Roddier presented her paper, "Recessional Aesthetics: Detroit" at the 9th International Conference of the Architectural Humanities Research Association (AHRA) which took place at the London Metropolitan University.

The paper was presented as part of a panel titled, "Urban Politics in a Post-Fordist Society." While this year's conference aimed to "reflect on the relevance of the concept of dissidence for architectural practice today," Roddier's paper presented practices that have sought to inscribe dissident agendas and sensibilities, and establishes a canon of paradoxical frameworks with which to position Detroit as both an aberration and an embodiment of 'norms' applicable to other contexts.
