Share this event:

"Town House Terroir: The Flavor of Place in Baltimore's Vernacular Buildings"

The houses of early American and Atlantic world seaport cities, Baltimore among them, evolved through a complex and nuanced culture of local and international perceptions and relationships.

Beginning with humble one-story wooden dwellings in Fells Point, historian and folklorist BERNARD L. HERMAN, Ph.D., department chair and George B. Tindall Distinguished Professor of Southern Studies and Folklore at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, will explore the nature of those conversations through the metaphor of "terroir," simply the taste of place, and how locale flavors not just the appearance of buildings but also how they are experienced and understood in the flows of everyday life.

Dr. Herman's books include "Town House: Architecture and Material Life in the Early American City, 1760-1830," awarded the Abbott Lowell Cummings Award as the best book on North American vernacular architecture.
