eldantew@ksu.edu | Curriculum Vitae

ElDante’ joined the faculty of the Department of Architecture after completing his doctorate from the History Theory and Criticism department in Massachusetts Institute of Technology's School of Architecture. His dissertation examined Renaissance architecture within the violent context of the period, examining war, corporal punishment, and vengeance as crucial elements to the meaning of Renaissance architecture, arguing that the absence of violence from the historiography has rendered the architecture devoid of its social and cultural meaning. His ongoing research interests lie in challenging the historical narrative of the Renaissance and expanding the global architectural relevance of this period.

ElDante’ also holds a M.A. in Architectural History from the University of Virginia, M. Arch from the Georgia Institute of Technology, and a B.S. in Architecture from The Ohio State University. He is also a licensed architect with experience in a variety of project types, working professionally for more than 20 years. During this time, he spent 5 years teaching architectural drafting in the Chicago Public School system.

Prior to join the faculty at Kansas State, ElDante was a Visiting Teaching Professor at Northeastern University, where he taught introductory design studios and a course on the Global History of Architecture. At KSU, he teaches design studios and history.
