  • CFP: Setting Out: 11th AHRA Annual Student Research Symposium, 2014

    Dublin | Dates: 16 Dec, 2013 – 10 Jan, 2014

    Setting Out: 11th AHRA Annual Student Research Symposium, 2014
    Call for Papers
    University College, Dublin
    May 19 2014

    The AHRA invites proposals from PhD candidates in architecture for contributions to its 11th Annual Student Research Symposium, which will be hosted by the School of Architecture, Landscape and the Built Environment, University College, Dublin, on May 19th 2014. The symposium will include a keynote presentation by Professor Anthony Vidler, Brown University.

    The theme of the symposium is Setting Out. Irrespective of topic and stage of advancement, every PhD candidate has to ‘set out’ in several senses, and will do so many times. Right at the very beginning, a journey is begun despite (or perhaps because of) an uncertainty about where one will end up. The seedlings of ideas are planted out to prosper or fail. Then, there is a territory to scope out for construction. Later, and repeatedly until the project’s end, things must be consciously placed in appropriate adjacencies, wares displayed. We are forever setting out.

    Setting Out is an opportunity for PhD candidates in architecture at all stages of progress to engage in critical and constructive discussion on the processes according to which their work is evolving. These ‘processes’ would cover methodologies, theoretical frameworks, experiments, interdisciplinary investigations, as well as other markers set out by researchers; their terms of engagement. The discussion will address the structures and systems adopted by research candidates to allow them map out their territory, set out their plan of work.

    Proposals will be welcomed from PhD candidates in the areas of theory and history of architecture and designed landscapes, conservation and heritage, sustainable building design and performance and urban design, as well as relevant adjacent fields and interdisciplinary research. Papers will be arranged in parallel sessions, with feedback and discussion after each.

    Abstracts should be sent by email headed “Abstract_AHRA_PhD_2014_YOUR NAME” to kevin.donovan@ucd.ie or laura.johnstone@ucdconnect.ie. Abstracts should:

    • define the subject and summarise the argument to be presented in the proposed paper,

    • refer to your field of research, methodology, and research aims,

    • include a short biographical description (50 words), as well as the name of your institution and supervisor,

    • be approximately 300 words long.

    The deadline for receipt of abstracts is Friday the 10th of January 2014, and it is hoped that we will be able to advise successful candidates by late January 2014. Final drafts of successful papers will be required one month in advance of the symposium.

  • 63rd Attingham Summer School (July 4–21, 2014)

    Dates: 16 Dec, 2013 – 31 Jan, 2014

    Call for Applications: Applications are now being accepted for the 63rd Attingham Summer School (July 4–21, 2014), an intensive eighteen-day residential course devoted to the study of British historic houses.

    The purpose of the course is to examine the architectural and social history of the historic house in Britain, study the contents of these buildings – their paintings, sculpture, furniture, ceramics, silver, textiles and other applied arts – as well as the planning, decorative treatment and use of the interiors, and to stimulate debate on problems relating to the conservation and presentation of the country house and its contents. Applications are invited from those working in related fields; scholarship support is available for those in need. The course offers privileged access to approximately 25 houses in three regions of England. The program includes on-site instruction by staff curators and property owners, as well as seminars and lectures provided by eminent visiting scholars who impart a broad artistic and social context for the country house, its landscape, and contents. Discussion among colleagues from a variety of backgrounds enriches the learning process and forms an important component of the program.

    Since its foundation in 1952, the Attingham Summer School has been recognized for its careful selection of students and its high academic standards. Museums, universities, historic preservation societies, architectural firms, and arts-related businesses that have sponsored members of their staff have benefited from this unique educational opportunity.

    The deadline to apply is January 31, 2014. For application and further information, visit www.americanfriendsofattingham.org.
