    Bray Lecture Series: Ruins & the Anxiety of Decline

    Guest Lecturer
    Dr. Dora Apel
    Professor & W. Hawkins Ferry Endowed Chair in 
    Modern & Contemporary Art History, Wayne State University

    Focusing on Detroit, Flint and other cities facing urban deterioration, this talk critically examines the contemporary imagery of ruination and considers its cultural and political functions. It argues that the global popularity of ruin images serves to contain and control pervasive fears of decline.
