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.
