HPEF is launching a new initiative, Partners in Training, to further its mission of providing training opportunities on technical topics associated with preservation technology. This initiative has been developed in response to cuts in public funding for preservation training, and seeks to replicate the success HPEF has enjoyed working with other educational institutions and organizations that share its passion for the technical aspects of preservation.
In this initial round of funding for Partners in Training, HPEF is inviting educational institutions and nonprofit organizations to submit training proposals that address specialized topics associated with technical aspects of preservation projects. Applicants should review the HPEF website (www.hpef.us) for information on previous initiatives of the Foundation. Some have been undertaken with non-traditional and cross-disciplinary partners, while others have provided in-depth training on narrowly defined materials or building types.
HPEF’s goals for this inaugural Partners in Training initiative are to:
- Support technical preservation training and educational efforts for the public sector as well as for educational institutions and non-profit organizations
- Continue a successful tradition of partnering with educational institutions and non-profit organizations to deliver technical preservation training
- Continue to provide high-quality and focused symposia and conferences on topics timely to the technical preservation community
- Leverage HPEF’s experience and organizational stability to support new and unique training opportunities
The applicant’s teaming with secondary organizations, including other public, private and non-profit organizations, is encouraged if this supports the primary goals of the proposal.
Following a model that has proven successful in past endeavors, HPEF’s contribution will include administrative and initial financial support (seed money to fund initial tasks, handling of registration and financial functions associated with the event, and assumption of financial risk). Administrative support includes participation in event planning, registration functions, and, as appropriate, assistance in online publication of materials prepared for the event.
The successful applicant will assume all other responsibilities including marketing; coordination of onsite aspects associated with the venue; project budget; and staffing, including at event to meet onsite needs.
HPEF will award grant(s) ranging from $5,000 – $20,000, representing a maximum of 50% of the total project cost.
The proposed project must be implemented in 2014 or 2015.

Dates: 14 – 17 Dec, 2014
IASTE 2014 Conference
14th to 17th December 2014
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
The fourteenth conference of the International Association for the Study of Traditional Environments (IASTE) will be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from December 14-17, 2014. The theme of the conference is "Whose Tradition?"
IASTE is an academic, non-profit association based at the University of California at Berkeley concerned with the cross-cultural study of traditional dwellings and settlements. Since 1988, its activities have included the publication of a semi-annual journal, Traditional Dwellings and Settlements Review, and an ongoing Working Paper Series. IASTE's conferences, held every two years, have been held at locations as varied as Beirut and Portland, and have considered themes related to sustainability, development debates, and issues of culture and identity. Each conference has included over 100 speakers from nearly 40 countries and a wide range of academic disciplines, and has been attended by nearly 400 participants.
"Whose Tradition?" is the theme of the fourteenth conference of the International Association for the Study of Traditional Environments (IASTE) to be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from December 14-17, 2014. In examining themes of authorship and subjectivity, this conference will seek to uncover in what manner, for what reason, by whom, to what effect, and during what intervals traditions have been deployed with regard to the built environment. Our current period of globalization has led to the flexible reinterpretation of traditions via the mass media for reasons of power and profit. A proliferation of environments adopt traditional forms of one place and period in a completely different contextual setting, while new design traditions may privilege image over experience. At the same time, the advent of new mobile technologies with the power to compress and distort traditional configurations of space and time has allowed for the flourishing of new, empowering practices. Such practices have led to new traditions of urban resistance and uprisings that travel fluidly between such diverse locales as Sao Paolo and Istanbul, Madrid and Cairo, and give voice to certain populations previously excluded. Questions of power, the other, and changing configurations of time and space will open up discussions of the ways in which traditional practices shape the histories and futures of built environments. Papers will explore the following themes: Who: Power and the Construction of Traditions; What: Place and the Anchoring of Traditions; Where: Mobility and the Reimagination of Traditions.
Scholars from relevant disciplines are invited to submit a 500-word abstract and short biography by February 17, 2014. Submission details are available online at: http://iaste.berkeley.edu/
Inquiries should be directed to IASTE 2014 Conference, Center for Environmental Design Research, 390 Wurster Hall #1839, University of California, Berkeley, CA 94720-1839, USA. Phone: 510.642.6801, fax: 510.643.5571, e-mail: email@example.com
Please find the 2014 Call for Abstracts here: http://iaste.berkeley.edu/conferences/105.html
Please distribute to interested colleagues and students. Kindly note that the deadline for submission of abstracts for consideration is February 17, 2014.

"A Dialogue of the Arts: The Relationship of Exterior and Interior: Descriptions of Architecture and Interiors in Literature of Early Modern Times to the Present“
During the earlier conferences of 2010 and 2012, which dealt with „Descriptions of Architecture in Literature of Early Modern Times to the Present” respectively „Descriptions of Interior Design in Literature of Early Modern Times to the Present“, the third conference is devoted to the relationship of architectural interior and exterior aspects and this again relying on literature of different languages from Early Modern Times to the present. The first two conferences have shown us that literary descriptions of different times and languages witness the time in which they are written: They are on the one hand an important contribution for understanding the development of methods, on the other hand they can disclose new interdisciplinary dialogues. The presentations and the following publication of the foregoing conference have shown clearly that literary texts of different genres like prose, poetry, travelogues, diaries as well as letters and other categories are door openers not only for new art historian perceptions, but also can give hints to new methods of our discipline. This means not only the breaking up of the periodical conception of history of art, but also the architectural and spatial categories defined by history of art.
These are also the intentions of the third conference, dedicated to the relation of inside and outside of architecture in literary descriptions. How far and how deep literary descriptions can scrutinize the methods of art history and in which extent this will be possible.
Furthermore the conference is interested in papers showing new perspectives for the discipline, being able to engage and continue new dialogues for the different shifts of time and genres.
We particularly encourage the submission of proposals that crosscut cultural contexts, present diachronic perspectives or establish relationships between different universes.
Submissions for a 30-minute presentation and edited volume should be forwarded to the Scientific Committee, which will proceed to a peer review.
Submissions should be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org until 28th February 2014, with “CFP Dialogue of the Arts 2014” as subject message;
The abstracts should only include title and a maximum of 500 words; the abstract must be accompanied by a different file with a curriculum vitae (maximum: 1 page), that must include personal identification elements, the submission title, academic affiliation and a selection of a maximum of 5 bibliographic references; Notification of acceptance will be announced until 28th February 2014.
Los Angeles |
Dates: 28 Jul – 06 Aug, 2014
(http://www.humanities.ucla.edu/getty/) is an eight-day summer institute to be held at the University of California, Los Angeles, July 28–August 6, 2014. Participants will learn about debates and key concepts in the digital humanities and gain hands-on experience with tools and techniques for art historical research (including data visualization, network graphs, and digital mapping). More fundamentally, the Institute will be an opportunity for participants to imagine what digital art history can be: What constitutes art historical “data”? How shall we name and classify this data? Which aspects of art historical knowledge are amenable to digitization, and which aspects resist it?
With major support for the program provided by the Getty Foundation, participants will receive travel and lodging in Los Angeles for the duration of the Institute. Sessions will be taught by UCLA’s team of leading digital humanities technologists, who will be joined by faculty members Johanna Drucker (Bernard and Martin Breslauer Professor of Bibliography, Information Studies), Steven Nelson (Associate Professor of African and African American Art History), Todd Presner (Chair, Digital Humanities Program, and Professor of Germanic Languages and Comparative Literature), and Miriam Posner (Digital Humanities Program Coordinator and Institute Director).
Participants will be selected on the basis of their ability to formulate compelling research questions about the conjunction of digital humanities and art history, as well as their potential to disperse the material they glean to colleagues at their home institutions and to the field at large.
Applicants must possess an advanced degree in art history or a related field. The application is open to faculty members, curators, independent scholars, and other professionals who conduct art historical research. We define “art history” broadly to include the study of art objects and monuments of all times and places. Current graduate students are not eligible to apply. If you have questions about eligibility, please contact Institute Director Miriam Posner at email@example.com.
Please apply online at http://www.humanities.ucla.edu/getty.
Applications are due by 11:59 p.m. PST on March 1, 2014.
Dates: 03 Feb – 01 Jul, 2014

"Data: Collecting, Using, Managing"
3rd Biennial Kathleen A. Zar Symposium
April 25, 2014
The John Crerar Library
The University of Chicago
Data is captured by computers and instruments on a continual basis, flooding researchers in images, video, audio, logs, simulations, and more. This data is crucial to research, teaching and learning at academic institutions around the world. Understanding the impact of data on researchers, libraries and institutions as a whole is critical to achieving long-term data preservation, appropriate sharing among communities, and enabling transformative new science. This symposium will provide participants with an understanding of how data is used in real world applications, as well as examples of collaborative efforts between institutions, groups or individuals specific to collection, use, access, preservation and overall management of data.
The organizers of the 3rd biennial Kathleen A. Zar Symposium, Data: Collecting, Using, Managing, to be held Friday, April 25, invite proposals for presentations that draw on your experience working with data in a collaborative environment.
Contributed presentations will provide examples of collaborative efforts between institutions, groups or individuals, with a focus on one or more of the following areas: collection, use, access, preservation and overall management of data. Practical, real use cases will be highlighted. Proposals selected for full oral presentations will be eligible for as travel stipend.
Proposals should be submitted to Barbara Kern via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please use "Zar Symposium" in the subject line. Proposals must include a title, author(s), and abstract (maximum 600 words). Presentations will be 30-45 minutes. The deadline for submission is February 21.
Dates: 31 Jan – 03 Mar, 2014
Summer Institute on Digital Mapping and Art History
Call for Applicants
Middlebury College, Middlebury VT
August 3-15, 2014
Middlebury College is pleased to invite applications for Fellows to participate in the first Summer Institute on Digital Mapping and Art History (August 3-15, 2014), generously sponsored by the Samuel H. Kress Foundation. Co-directed by Paul B. Jaskot (DePaul University) and Anne Kelly Knowles (Middlebury College), the Summer Institute will emphasize how digital mapping of art historical evidence can open up new veins of research in art history as a whole. All art historians of any rank (including graduate students, curators, or independent scholars) with a scholarly problem related to spatial evidence or questions are encouraged to apply.
Whether talking about the spreading influence of Rembrandt’s workshop, Haussmann’s Plan of Paris, the Roman Forum, the caves of Dunhuang, the views of Edo, the market for Impressionist painting, the looting of assets by Napoleon, the movement of craftsmen over the medieval pilgrimage road, or the current proliferation of art expos globally, art history is peppered with spaces, both real and imagined. As such, spatial questions are central to many art historical problems, and visualizing spatial questions of different physical and temporal scales is an intellectual and technical problem amenable to the digital environment. Building the capacity to think spatially in geographic terms will carry an art historian a long way towards developing sophisticated questions and answers by exploiting the digital environment.
At the end of the two-week period, Fellows will have a grounding in the intellectual and historiographic issues central to digital humanities, basic understanding of the conceptual nature of data and the use of a database, an exposure to important examples of digital art history in the field, and a more in-depth study of one particular digital approach (GIS and the visualization of space). Graduating Fellows will have the vocabulary and intellectual foundation to participate in on-going digital humanities debates or other specialized digital humanities workshops while also gaining important practical and conceptual knowledge in mapping that they can begin to apply to as scholars and teachers.
Given this focus, our Institute will be ideal for those art historians who already have identified a spatial problem in their work. Note, though, that no prior knowledge or experience in digital humanities will be necessary or assumed for the application process. Naturally, general awareness of the scholarly potential of the digital environment or mapping will be a plus. All geographies, time periods, and subareas of art history will be considered.
For more information on the application process, see: http://las.depaul.edu/haa/docs/fulltime/Digital_Mapping_flyer.pdf
For questions, please contact at any time the co-directors (Paul B. Jaskot, email@example.com; Anne Kelly Knowles, firstname.lastname@example.org ).
All materials must be sent electronically by March 3, 2014.

Questions of space and place affect the very way in which we experience and recreate the world. Wars are fought over both real and imagined spaces; boundaries are erected against the “Other” constructing a lived landscape of division and disenfranchisement; while ideology constructs a national identity based upon the dialectics of inclusion and exclusion. The construction of space and place is also a fundamental aspect of the creative arts either through the art of reconstruction of a known space or in establishing a relationship between the audience and the performance. Politics, power and knowledge are also fundamental components of space as is the relationship between visibility and invisibility. This new inter- and multi-disciplinary conference project seeks to explore these and other topics and open up a dialogue about the politics and practices of space and place. We seek submissions from a range of disciplines including archaeology, architecture, urban geography, the visual and creative arts, philosophy and politics and also actively encourage practitioners and non-academics with an interest in the topic to participate.
We welcome traditional papers, preformed panels of papers, workshop proposals and other forms of performance – recognising that different disciplines express themselves in different mediums.
300 word abstracts should be submitted by Friday 4th April 2014. If an abstract is accepted for the conference, a full draft paper should be submitted by Friday 11th July 2014.
Dates: 12 – 19 Jul, 2014
This course will take students through the history of English medieval architecture, enabling them to discern the various architectural styles seen across the country, in great cathedrals and humble parish churches alike. With this knowledge students will be able to date parts of these buildings, as well as deepen their understanding of the changing times in which they were built. The course will include a field trip to a series of fascinating and beautiful buildings emblematic of each style.
This course aims to enable students to identify the main periods of medieval architectural style, especially in old churches.
This course will enable students to:
deepen their understanding and appreciation of the buildings around them;
recognise the key identifying features of medieval architectural style;
improve their analysis of buildings of all types and periods, especially with respect to the identification of stylistic change;
deepen their understanding of the concept of style, especially as it relates to architecture;
achieve an overall sense of the significance of other techniques for analysing buildings, especially those dependent on archaeological and historical evidence;
generally enrich their visual skills;
improve and broaden their understanding of the medieval world and medieval religious culture.
Dates: 19 – 26 Jul, 2014
The abbeys and priories were a focus of rich architectural creativity, and a remarkable amount of this extraordinary architecture survived the dissolution of England's monasteries in the sixteenth century. While, for example, the great abbeys of Reading and Glastonbury are essentially archaeological sites today, abbey churches such as Sherborne and Waltham survive to serve thriving parishes, and among the monastic cathedrals, Canterbury retains not only the great church itself but also many of its monastic buildings. We will trace the dramatic growth of the monastic orders in Britain expressed through their architecture.
Dates: 28 Jan – 19 Mar, 2014

The architectural profession is experiencing an exciting new phase in design practice. Many transitions have led us to this point of emerging practice from the architect as the master mason to a representation-maker; from pen and pencil to mouse and keyboard; three-dimensional digital models to parametric databases. With these technological advancements in design and fabrication, architects and designers are now diversifying their traditional scope of responsibility and experimenting with new modes of creation. To critically assess where we currently stand and project the methods of the future, we look to the leaders of exploration and innovation to compare and contrast their processes of design.
Ryerson University’s Master of Architecture class invites architects, academics, industry professionals and students to come together to explore and debate the effects this metamorphosis is having on the role of the architect.
