58-March 21, 2014
Robert Miller
"Paradise of Spectacle: Imagining and Re-presenting Casino Resorts as Spaces of Luxury and Leisure in the Twentieth Century"
In this 3/21/14 Gaming Research Colloquium talk, Miller (Assistant Instructor and PhD Candidate in History, University of Kansas) examines how Las Vegas, Monte Carlo, Havana, and Macau each created spatial imaginaries that helped to anchor the cities as destinations centered around gambling. Each locale shares cosmopolitanism, luxury, and spectacle, allowing them to draw on a large cross-section of the public.
