- 18.30–19.30Keynote Lecture by Christine StevensonProfessor Christine Stevenson teaches students at The Courtauld Institute of Art, University of London, about the history of architecture, and of monuments and memorializing. She grew up in Canada, where her fascination with the architecture of the Baltic and Nordic countries began when she was an exchange student in Finland, and then in Denmark. Her PhD dissertation was about the prisons and asylums designed by the Danish architect C. F. Hansen. Since then she has published two books -- Medicine and Magnificence: British Hospital and Asylum Architecture 1660–1815 (2000) and The City and the King: Architecture and Politics in Restoration London (2013) – and is working on another, about famous building craftsmen in early modern England.
