CAP Lecture Series: M. Elen Deming

Monday, Sep 23rd @ 4 p.m. - 5 p.m.

M. Elen Deming

Professor of Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning, Director of Graduate Program for the Doctor of Design, NC State University

M. Elen Deming is Director for the new Doctor of Design Program at the College of Design at NC State. For nearly 25 years she has taught design studios, design history and theory, and research design in landscape architecture and is a sought-after graduate mentor.  Most recently, Deming was Professor of Landscape Architecture and former Department Head at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign and, from 1993 to 2008, she taught at SUNY’s College of Environmental Science and Forestry in Syracuse, NY.

Deming’s research interests are two-fold: history and theory of landscape representation and utopian thought in 20th-century urban design, as well as research design and methodology serving the needs of professional practitioners. These areas of expertise synthesize her studies in humanities, teaching, design practice, and editorial experiences.
