"Insuring the City: Urban Development and Urban Survival"
Elihu Rubin is an assistant professor of urbanism at the Yale School of Architecture. His work bridges the urban disciplines, focusing on the built environments of nineteenth- and twentieth-century cities, the history and theory of city planning, cultural landscapes, the geography of urban transportation, and the social life of urban space. Rubin has made documentary videos on topics relating to urban history, the politics of public space, urban redevelopment, architectural modernism, street life, and carpooling.
