Keller Easterling is an architect, writer and professor at Yale. Her most recent book, Extrastatecraft: The Power of Infrastructure Space (Verso, 2014), examines global infrastructure as a medium of polity. Another recent book, Subtraction (Sternberg, 2014), considers building removal or how to put the development machine into reverse. Other books include: Enduring Innocence: Global Architecture and its Political Masquerades (MIT, 2005) and Organization Space: Landscapes, Highways and Houses in America (MIT, 1999).

The ArtCenter Dialogues, a lecture series made possible by a generous endowment from the Toyota Motor Corporation, brings eminent speakers to the College from a wide variety of art, design and educational backgrounds to inspire creativity and thoughtful discussion, and to broaden perspectives.

In the 2015-2016 year, ArtCenter will be celebrating its 85th anniversary and the Humanities and Sciences department has decided to mark this occasion by asking questions of our future. The Future Ecologies series engages the critical and imaginative futures we as a species face by considering the rapidly changing natural and technological environments of our contemporary world. The series also coincides with the Williamson Gallery Spring 2015 exhibition: Urbanature – New Representations of the Natural (Feb 18-May 8).
