Jennifer Tate holds a PhD in Architecture in the field of architectural history from the University of Texas at Austin. Relying upon an interdisciplinary approach influenced by her previous academic and professional experience in political science and international relations, she explores ways in which systems of power and politics traverse the built environment. Jennifer’s current research focuses on the intersection of twentieth century American modern architecture and modern housing, issues of race, class, and housing, and New Deal to post-WWII era politics. She is also active in the Society of Architectural Historians, currently serving as co-chair to the IDEAS Committee and previously serving as the Graduate Student Representative Board Member to the organization.
