By Brooks Travelling Fellow Amber N. Wiley

I was not ready to leave Ghana. I had not yet visited Kumasi, walked the campus of KNUST, or seen the Asante traditional buildings that survived British destruction in 1874. I truncated my trip due to the pressures of the health epidemic in West Africa (although no cases of Ebola were reported in Ghana), and left a month to the day that I arrived. My purpose was to research architectural heritage and urbanism in Accra, Cape Coast, Kumasi, and (optimistically, if I had enough time) the Northern Region. As I began to meet people around Accra and describe my plans to do first-hand study of architecture in Ghana, I was often countered with the question “Why Ghana?

  • CFP: At Home in the Space Between (June 19-21, 2015)

    Notre Dame | Dates: 24 Nov, 2014 – 15 Jan, 2015
    The 2015 conference of The Space Between society, ‘At Home in the Space Between,’ focuses on the concept of home during the period 1914-1945. ‘Home’ as a space invites discussions of interiority, belonging, and family. It also conjures alternate conceptions of haunting, anxiety, and alienation. From notions of the Great War’s ‘home front’ to the interwar period’s ‘back to home and duty,’ politicized notions of home are especially rich during this period. The innovative design and lifestyle experimentation of this period also invite studies of a domestic modernity. The conference ‘At Home in the Space Between’ requests papers from all disciplines that consider ‘home’ in the broadest sense as both space and concept.
