Rice University
Professor of Humanities, Director of the Humanities Research Center
Farès el-Dahdah has written extensively on Brazil's modern architecture and has been involved in a number of collaborative projects with Casa de Lucio Costa and Fundação Oscar Niemeyer, two Brazilian cultural foundations on the boards of which he serves. He is currently leading a Digital Art History Grant, titled Situated Views of Rio de Janeiro: 19th and Early 20th-Century Photography and the Diluvial Houston grant, both supported by the Getty and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundations, respectively. El-Dahdah runs, in addition, the Center for Research Computing’s Spatial Studies Lab where his current research interests explore how digital platforms uphold the mission of disseminating knowledge. The Lab also develops online geospatial platforms that describe cities, sites, and events over time, as they existed and as they have come to be imagined. At Rice, el-Dahdah's activities extend across the university in his capacity as chair of the University Committee on Information Technology, Faculty Scholar at the Baker Institute, and member of the Ken Kennedy Institute's Faculty Advisory Committee.
