Clark Quoted in Star Tribune's "Porch Revisted" Story

August 15, 2011

Cliff Clark, Professor of History and M.A. and A.D. Hulings Professor of American Studies, was quoted in the Aug. 15 Star Tribune's article, "Porch Revisted." The story delves into how porches have evolved in the American home and enjoyed a resurgence of late. "The porch is an interesting symbolic space in the sense it's a formal place where neighbors can sit and chat. It's also a signal that this family is friendly," Clark says in the story.
