Episodic Urbanisms

Detroit, MI

Frederick Biehle will present his paper, Episodic Urbanisms: Pedagogical Studies and the Lesson of Rome, at the annual national conference of the ACSA during the session In Practice: History as Research. The paper looks at the porosity and interconnectedness of the pedestrian fabric of historical Rome as a principal means of empowering the individual and fulfilling the promise of the urban experience.
