Double Major: Mathematical Models and Postwar German Reconstruction

Carleton University Art Gallery invites the Azrieli School of Architecture & Urbanism’s students, staff and faculty to the February edition of DOUBLE MAJOR.


Inderbir Riar will speak on “Postwar German Reconstruction” and David Pantalony will speak on “Mathematical Models.”


Tuesday, 10 February 2015, 7:00 p.m.

Carleton University Art Gallery, St. Patrick’s Building

Admission is free and everyone is welcome!


Each speaker talks for 20 minutes, after which there will be a Q&A addressing both topics. DOUBLE MAJOR is a fun and friendly way to stimulate discussion of seemingly disparate topics, and to make new connections between people and ideas.

David Pantalony is the Curator of Physical Sciences and Medicine at the Canada Science and Technology Museum. He specializes in the history of scientific instruments, with an active research interest in post-war science in Canada. In 2012 he won the Paul Bunge Book Prize for his book on Rudolph Koenig’s acoustical workshop in 19th-century Paris. He is the editor in chief of Scientia Canadensis


Inderbir Riar is an Assistant Professor in the Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism at Carleton University. He has a PhD in architectural history from Columbia, where he completed a dissertation entitled “Expo 67, or the Architecture of Late Modernity.” His research and teaching interests include the history and historiography of modern architecture and urbanism, technology and the avant-gardes, megastructures and Canadian modernity, utopia and utopianism, and ephemeral events such as world’s fairs.


DOUBLE MAJOR is brought to you by Carleton University Art Gallery and the Carleton University Alumni Association.
