The Image of the Interior
A Seminar with Charles Rice

Wednesday March 25th from 18.30 to 20.00
32 Bedford Square, South Jury Room

Charles Rice will discuss his research on the domestic interior. He will focus on methodological issues, in particular the understanding of the interior as an historically emergent category, and the reading of photographic images as a particular kind of historical evidence.

Charles Rice is Professor of Architectural History and Theory, and Head of the School of Art and Design History at Kingston University in London, where he is a senior researcher in Kingston’s Modern Interiors Research Centre. He is author of The Emergence of the Interior: Architecture, Modernity, Domesticity (Routledge, 2007), and is editor of The Journal of Architecture (Routledge/RIBA).
