Associate Professor
Elihu Rubin is Associate Professor of Urbanism at the Yale School of Architecture, with a secondary appointment in American Studies. His work bridges the urban disciplines, focusing on the built environments of nineteenth and twentieth-century cities, the history and theory of city planning, urban geography and the cultural landscape, transportation and mobility, architectural preservation, heritage planning, and the social life of urban space. Rubin is the author of Insuring the City: The Prudential Center and the Postwar Urban Landscape (Yale University Press, 2012) which received Best Book awards from the Urban History Association and the Society for American City and Regional Planning History (SACRPH). He is co-founder of the documentary film company American Beat and has produced a trilogy of films about social history and cultural landscapes in New Haven, among other projects. As a professor at Yale, he has initiated a range of community-based teaching, research, and representation projects, including “Interactive Crown Street,” the “New Haven Building Archive,” and “Excavating the Armory,” which cultivates public reflection on the preservation and adaptive reuse of the Goffe Street Armory.
