Dell Upton, an award-winning historian of architecture, cultural landscapes, and cities, currently chairs the UCLA Department of Art History. Professor Upton, a pioneer in linking social and architectural history, focuses both on the United States and the global scene, and has had a longstanding interest in the history of African American architecture and material culture. His books include What Can and Can’t Be Said (2015), Another City (2008), Architecture in the United States (1998), and Holy Things and Profane (1986).
