Central European Architecture and Design; Modern Design, Architectural Theory; History of Architectural Education; History of Historic Preservation
Professor Long's interests center on modern architectural history, with a particular emphasis on Central Europe between 1800 and the present. Trained in history rather than architecture, his approach borrows from cultural and intellectual history, as well as political and economic history. He has studied questions of cultural representation in architecture, the larger ideological context of late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century architectural theory, and the development of architectural education. Long's interests also include modern design in Austria, the Czech lands, and the United States. He has worked on several exhibitions and publishes widely on a diverse range of subjects.
