  • Culture of Crisis, the first themed issue of Architectural Histories, the Open Access Journal of the EAHN, is now online.

    Dates: 29 Oct, 2013
    This issue examines the multiple and complex relationships of architecture as a practice, a discipline or a field of knowledge with historical instances of crisis.

    Realities of crisis have always surrounded architecture, and in fact sustained it. Yet because of the ubiquity and persistence of crisis over the last few years, to speak of ‘crisis’ at this moment has become to speak of a ‘culture of crisis’, with its own politics of antagonisms, local and global. The papers in this special collection historicize ‘crisis’ in relation to architecture, precisely to uncover the complexity of stakes in moments of crisis. Architectural Histories contemplates the social role of architecture in advancing or challenging social priorities and biases; the role of architectural education in the ups-and-downs of the construction industry; the subversive potentials of art, architecture and urbanism; and indeed the complicity or resistance of architecture in the face of historical antecedents to our own culture of crisis.

    HERE'S THE LINK TO THE APPLICATION: http://bit.ly/1brTbMd

    The form is also linked from the VRA homepage.

    You do not need to be a member of the VRA to apply for a travel award, but please note that upon winning an award an applicant who is not a member of VRA must purchase a membership, with the option to use funding from the travel award to do this.

    Please also note that award checks are distributed at the conference and as such, recipients will not have access to those funds ahead of the conference to set against travel expenses.

    In order to allow funding to go further, Tansey awards will be distributed according to financial need i.e. full awards (up to $850) may be given to some, whilst lower amounts may be awarded to others with partial institutional/other support.

    For 2014, we are fortunate to have generous financial support from sponsors and funds provided by the membership:
