The international conference ‘The Image of the City transformed: 15th-18th Century’ will focus on the transformation of the image of the city and how this underwent profound changes during the early modern period in Europe and America.
The image of the city is interpreted as the physical and morphological city structure, the ways in which activities of residents, users, entrepreneurs and authorities in the city occur, and the perception of the city as represented in written texts and visual imagery.
The study of the image of the city has increased enormously in recent decades. In many disciplines such as architecture, urban planning, sociology, anthropology and perception psychology, there is a growing interest in the way that image is created.
Many researchers still focus on describing cities at a specific moment in time, describing their perceived identity and characteristics at that point.
Less attention is paid to the transformations that the image of the city has undergone over time. Questions we could ask include:
-How are the images of the cities formed and how are they changing?
-Who is responsible for the transformation of the image of the city, that can be either slow or rapid?
-Do changes in the city’s image evolve only from a functional point of view, or also from physical or morphological stand points?
-Which components of a city are the most sensitive to mutations in image formation?

This international symposium will explore ways in which medievalism and the Gothic style were incorporated into modern art, architecture, and design. Concentrating on Britain and the United States from 1900 onwards, the event interlaces shifting understandings of the sacred and religious traditions with discourses surrounding powerful and avant-garde notions of the Middle Ages as a rich material, literary, and ideological territory. Gothic themes will demonstrate how cross-disciplinary perspectives in theology and the arts increasingly underpin new thinking regarding modern transatlantic revivalism, cultural identity, rituals, and hermeneutics.
Free; open to the public.
Dates: 21 Feb – 15 Mar, 2013

Since the Carter Manny Award’s establishment in 1996, over $600,000 has been awarded in recognition of outstanding doctoral students whose work represents some of the most innovative and advanced scholarship on architecture and its role in the arts, culture, and society. The Carter Manny Award supports dissertation research and writing by promising scholars whose projects have architecture as their primary concern and focus and have the potential to shape contemporary discourse about architecture and impact the field. Projects may be drawn from the various fields of inquiry supported by the Graham Foundation: architectural history, theory, and criticism; design; engineering; landscape architecture; urban planning; urban studies; the visual arts; and other related fields. (See the Overview of our grant programs). The award assists students enrolled in graduate programs in architecture, art history, the fine arts, humanities, and the social sciences working on architecture topics.
The Graham Foundation offers two Carter Manny Awards: a research award for a student at the research stage of the doctoral dissertation and a writing award for a student at the writing stage of the doctoral dissertation. The research award is acknowledged with up to $15,000 and the writing award is acknowledged with up to $20,000.
The Carter Manny Award applications are reviewed by a diverse panel of recognized scholars in the fields of inquiry represented by the award.

questions of methodology and ideology, probe the categories of race,
ethnicity, class, and gender, and reflect critically on the state and
outlook of the field.
