A native of Portland, Keith Eggener received his PhD in art history from Stanford University. Before joining the University of Oregon in 2013, he taught modern architecture and American art at Carleton College, the University of Nevada-Las Vegas, and the University of Missouri. He is the author of two books, Luis Barragán's Gardens of El Pedregal and Cemeteries (part of a series from the US Library of Congress), and numerous articles and book chapters on Mexican and U.S. art, architecture, landscape, urban design, and material culture. He also edited the collection American Architectural History: A Contemporary Reader and has been on the editorial staffs of the 60-volume Buildings of the United States series, AMSJ: American Studies Journal, and the online journal Places, for which he is a columnist. Currently, he is editor-in-chief for the Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians. Ongoing projects include a monograph on the early 20th century Kansas City architect Louis Curtiss and a collection of essays on built environments of the American Midwest.
