  • Call for Papers: Nomad Seminar in Historiography -- San Diego

    San Diego | Dates: 15 – 15 Nov, 2014
    More than 140 years after Engels polemically linked urban dwelling and political project, what has become of the housing question? The conference seeks to recover some of the rich political, social, or aesthetic scenarios contained in the history of housing. To this end, we invite papers that examine or re-examine key moments of the last century and a half during which artists or architects asked or answered the question of how to dwell. We are interested in papers that combine the discussion of built form with analysis of policy, social values, political agendas, or larger ideological trends, or which retrace moments in which architectural form was believed to transform social and economic relations. Topics can range from typologies of affordable units to the discourses, values, and policies that underpin the creation and promotion of exclusive gated communities. We seek contributions from art and architectural historians as well as scholars from other fields concerned with housing. Please submit 500-word abstracts and short CV by November 15 to Juliana Maxim, Associate Professor, Department of Art, Architecture + Art History, University of San Diego, at jmaxim@sandiego.edu; and to Can Bilsel, Chair and Professor, Department of Art, Architecture + Art History, University of San Diego, at cbilsel@sandiego.edu.
