Mapping Architectural Criticism Third International Symposium
Ce colloque international s’inscrit dans le Programme ANR Mapping Architectural Criticism (2015-2017), dont l’objectif est de développer un champ de recherche sur la critique architecturale des dernières décennies du XIXe siècle à aujourd’hui. Il débattra deux questions clé, relatives aux « géographies » de la critique d’architecture : ses frontières disciplinaires et ses territoires partagés, notamment avec la critique d’autres disciplines, depuis les dernières décennies du XIXe siècle.
Mutations, Conversions and Representations
The chosen perspective for this one-day conference is an inter- and pluri-disciplinary one and it is therefore articulated around a variety of approaches such as cultural geography, cultural history, art history, media studies, urban studies, heritage studies, architecture, etc.
International Conference on the values of tangible heritage
Tangible heritage is the support of some of the most relevant and perennial values of Mankind. It connects us with History, projects us to past environments and to lost cultural contexts, includes landmarks of our identity and constitutes a relevant economic asset. Therefore tangible heritage has intangible aspects inextricably associated to it and when tangible heritage is addressed, intangibility matters. Conservation of tangible heritage is a cultural act with the value approach as a leading concept. The protection statutes, the arguments used to sustain the protection policies, the management options and definition of priorities, the allocation of resources and the uses of heritage assets are intimately connected and dependent on values, bringing to focus the intangible side of their nature.
Religion, urban planning and demographic change in Post-War Europe, 1945-1975
The research group “Architectural cultures of the recent past” (ARP) of KU Leuven and KADOC, the Documentation and Research Centre on Religion, Culture and Society of KU Leuven, are organizing an international workshop on religion, urban planning and demographic change in post-war Europe as a prelude to an edited volume on this topic, to be published by an international academic press.
Disciplinary Boundaries and Shared Territories
The research project Mapping.Crit.Arch: Architectural criticism 20th and 21st centuries, a cartography, funded by the French Agence Nationale de la Recherche, aims to develop a field of research on the history of architectural criticism, from the last decades of the 19th century to the present day. It is based on an international network of scholars, whose interests cover the history of architectural criticism at various levels and through different approaches (including architectural theory, history of preservation, historiography of architecture, history of architectural periodicals and of criticism, history of photography).
Visions and Experiences of Urban Change in the Second World
This conference examines socialist cities at their points of entry or exit from the socialist project. The theme of transition into and out of socialism and the (un-)making of socialist cities serves as entry points into broader discussions about the specificity of urban change in the Second World and its relationship to similar currents in the global North and South. The conference examines the content of the socialist city – its “ins and outs” – from power grids and housing stocks to museums and places of worship at these points of transition.
First Iberian Colloquium on Landscape
Landscapes present themselves as sceneries we have inherited, where we live, and from where we draw the resources needed to subsist as a civilisation and as a species. The result of our actions on this heritage will be the legacy to our descendants. In the beginning of the third millennium, the interest in the topic of landscape is increasingly important, transforming this discipline in a research platform where several fields of knowledge intersect. The aim of this colloquium is to reflect about the diversity of multidisciplinary aspects, analytical methods, and intervention techniques related to the study of landscape, establishing a forum focused on the future relationship between humanity and landscape.
Architectural Criticism 20th and 21st Centuries, a Cartography
This second international workshop takes into consideration the actors and the vehicles of criticism: with these terms it refers to both the agents of criticism (critics, architects, historians, publishers, photographers, institutions, etc.) and the media through which criticism is disseminated (press, photography, exhibitions, etc.). The workshop aims to expand the knowledge about the specific functions of these actors and their networks and to outline their mutual relationships. The four sessions investigate the links between the actors, the media of criticism, and the historical contexts within which they materialize, as well as the cultural, intellectual, and institutional milieus from which they originate.
Trajectoires post-touristiques et société civile
Cet appel à communications vise à recueillir des expériences et/ou des analyses d’une mise en tourisme débutante ou finissante, ainsi que des interprétations de la dédifférenciation entre le touristique et l’ordinaire à laquelle nous assistons aujourd’hui. Les comparaisons et les essais de modélisation seront les bienvenus. Les propositions de communication, pouvant émaner de chercheurs, de praticiens ou d’associations, avec la possibilité de textes cosignés, s’inscriront dans un des trois thèmes suivants, abordés dans le cadre de trois colloques successifs.
The College Art Association (CAA) and Terra Foundation for American Art invite applications for the 2017 Terra Foundation for American art international publication grant. The grant provides financial support for the publication of book-length scholarly manuscripts on the history of American art from circa 1500 to 1980 in the current-day geographic United States.
Focus: Rural planning in Morocco – 20th century
MODSCAPES deals with rural landscapes produced by large-scale agricultural development and colonization schemes planned in the 20th century throughout Europe and beyond. Conceived in different political and ideological contexts, such schemes were pivotal to nation-building and state-building policies, and to the modernization of the countryside. They provided a testing ground for the ideas and tools of environmental and social scientists, architects, engineers, planners, landscape architects and artists, which converged around a shared challenge.
“Mapping Architectural Criticism” Second International Workshop Bologna
This call for papers is for the second of three international workshops planned by the Mapping.Crit.Arch Project to foster scholarship on the history of architectural criticism and facilitate exchanges between scholars active in this field of research. Conceived as milestones of the research project, these workshops intend to go beyond somewhat widespread interpretations that invoke either the specificity of architectural criticism or its partial overlapping with other forms of writing. The workshops also want to challenge simplistic views that suggest the crisis of architectural criticism if not its entire demise. The second workshop will focus on the actors and “vehicles” of architectural criticism.
Since the Classical era and the Middle Ages, and in particular since Plato’s Timeus, the concept of continuum has preoccupied thinkers. In the early 20th century, this notion was reactivated by the theory of relativity as well as other theories such as the uncertainty principle, changing our perception of the world, and consequently artistic discourse. We propose to examine where we are today in terms of the concept of continuum, both in theory and in practice. An interdisciplinary approach will enable us to evaluate the relevancy of this notion, comparing and contrasting it with other methodologies, during this international conference.
On 24-25 October 2016 the two Warsaw-based academic institutions: the Institute of Archaeology of the Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński University and the Institute of Art History of the University of Warsaw organise an international, multidisciplinary conference, which will be devoted to the role of the architecture in creation, enhancement and preservation of cultural landscapes.
Mapping.Crit.Arch: Architectural criticism XXth and XXst centuries, a cartography
This first workshop will focus on the relationship of architectural criticism with "public opinion" and on the opposite side, its relations to architecture as an "autonomous" discipline. The various nature and degree of such an autonomy will be examined in different historical, institutional and cultural contexts: to what extent is architectural criticism autonomous from social uses of architecture, from the architectural design and its economic production?
Vers une typologie des programmes héraldiques dans les lieux d’autoreprésentation
Soit dans les palais royaux et princiers, les châteaux nobles, les résidences patriciennes, les hôtels de ville ou les chapitres de cathédrales, maintes salles d’apparat du Moyen Âge et de l’Époque moderne sont munies de programmes héraldiques. Alors même qu’ils font partie intégrante de l’arrangement de ces salles, ceux-ci ont été cependant peu étudiés jusqu’ici. Ce workshop a pour objectif de proposer une première vue d’ensemble de ces programmes héraldiques des salles d’apparat par travers le Moyen Âge et l’Époque moderne en Europe et d’en proposer une première typologie.
XIII International Conference of European Association for Urban History – Session 29
From the late XIXth century onwards, both the competence and scale of Ministerial departments and State-run corporations have increased continuously in Western countries. This growth – which accelerated after each World War, and became a truly global phenomenon in the second half of the XXth century – necessitated the construction of large and well-equipped office buildings, which were often grouped together in the "administrative districts" of capitals and other major cities.
17th International Society of History of Sport and Physical Education (ISHPES) congress
The International Society of History of Sport and Physical Education (ISHPES) is the umbrella organisation for sports historians all over the world. The aim of the 17th ISHPES Congress is to provide a forum for the latest research, findings and experiences from the vast field of sport history. Researchers are invited to submit papers related to "Sites of sport in history" – these words being taken in their widest sense.
14th International Docomomo Conference 2016
The aim of this conference is to promote the conservation and (re)use of buildings and sites of the Modern Movement, to foster and disseminate the development of appropriate techniques and methods of conservation and (re)use, and to explore and develop new ideas for the future of a sustainable built environment, based on the past experiences of the Modern Movement. As a multidisciplinary platform, this conference aims to investigate a cross-section of subjects that are raised by the challenge of preserving, renovating and transforming the Modern Movement legacy worldwide, alongside with the complex background of today’s changing times. In the end, the goal is to achieve a pluricultural comparison of standards and practices for intervention on 20th century heritage.
Drawing seems nowadays to know unprecedented expansion and to invest all domains of the expression and the communication: book industries, cartoons and animation movies, video games, corporate communication… And we indeed face kind of a paradox: widely present, drawing seems almost impossible to define and some philosophers like Jean-Luc Nancy even invite us to accept the "unthinkable" nature of the drawing. The international conference we organize on June 15th and 16th of this year in the villa Finaly of Firenze (Italy) does not intend to adopt similar position. Without wishing necessarily to produce a definition of the drawing, we intend to progress towards its understanding.
