Dr. Cynthia Hammond has been named as an incoming Co-Director of COHDS


COHDS is proud to announce that Dr. Cynthia Hammond, currently Chair of the Department of Art History at Concordia and a core affiliate of our research unit, has been named by Concordia University as an incoming Co-Director of COHDS. She will take up the position on June 1st, 2017, once she returns from sabbatical. Ronald Rudin will continue as Co-Director until then.  We are all very excited by what Cynthia will bring to COHDS. Congratulations!

Cynthia Hammond graduated from Concordia University’s interdisciplinary doctoral program in 2002. From 2004-06, she held the first, federally-funded postdoctoral fellowship at the School of Architecture at McGill. Hammond teaches interdisciplinary practice and method, architectural history, and studios and seminars on spatial theory in the Departments of Art History and Studio Art. Her publications explore gender, public history, and questions of heritage in relation to the built environment. Cynthia also has an ongoing exhibition record as a painter, and as a socially-engaged public artist. In her pedagogy, research, and creative work, Cynthia foregrounds the city and its constituents as her collaborators in mobilizing multiple publics around the politics of urban change.
