Participates in 1 Session
Dustin Valen is a doctoral candidate in architectural history at McGill University where his research addresses the cultural history of architectural and landscape modernism. His interests include the social and political history of landscape in pre-Confederation Newfoundland, nineteenth-century scientific horticulture, and mid-century architectural modernism in Canada. His dissertation, "Maritime by Design: Modernity and the Social Politics of Landscape Design in Newfoundland, 1898-1939," explores how a series of creative practices helped educate a modern landscape-vision in Newfoundland, and how its resulting landscapes were situated at the intersection of elite and working-class culture. He has presented original research papers across Canada and internationally and has published essays in the JSAH, RACAR, and the JSSAC.
