Los Angeles is a city on the Pacific Rim where things appear on edge, for they lack a permanent footing even while occupying a specific locale. The city's genius loci produces this dual vision of fixed place in a state of constant dislocation. It is only appropriate for the edge-bound Getty Center to initiate a series of publications that aim to expose the historical study of artifacts to the oscillation of rigorous debate. Each of these books proceeds from a specific body of historical material, not because that material is in itself inherently imbued with controversy but because its exposure to different disciplinary approaches raises new questions of interpretation. In the realm of historical studies, issues often emerge at the intersection of the various perspectives scholars have constructed for the examination of their subjects. As their debate refracts and refocuses the material under scrutiny, it also invites reflection upon itself and thereby exposes the assumptions and tendencies of scholarship to no less assiduous criticism than it does the underpinnings of its subjects.

PechaKucha Night ,now in over 1, cities, was devised in Tokyo in February as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. This weeks City Focus finds us back in the states, taking a closer look at York, Pennsylvania. Known as an architectural museum for its well preserved historic structures, some dating back to the midth century, York was once the temporary capital of the United States while the Continental Congress drafted the Articles of Confederation there. Adding to the history is the countries oldest fair, the day long York Fair, with roots tracing back to , over 10 years before the nation was founded! Featuring a simple yet aesthetic design of a city with a rainbow shooting out of the buildings, this poster pops when it catches your eye. What's more, this poster and event serve to highlight Pride Week with proceeds from the event going towards New West Pride - awesome! We are all about equality and inclusion here at PechaKucha, so naturally, this poster fits right in.
