May 17, 2017
On Saturday, May 6, the Ellison Center at the University of Washington and the University Library sponsored a symposium dedicated to the work of Guggenheim Fellow William C. Brumfield (Russian History, 2000). The symposium discussed the role of documentation in the study of Russian architecture in relation to other cultures. The event was held in conjunction with an exhibit of Brumfield’s photographs, Architecture at the End of the Earth. The symposium also featured the public launch of an archival site–the William Brumfield Russian Architecture Digital Collection–funded in part by NEH and supported by the University of Washington Libraries.
