Spaces / Times / Peoples: Nature and Architectural History

Middle East Technical University Graduate Program in Architectural History organizes a series of symposia bi-annually, open to graduate students and researchers who have recently completed their Ph.D. studies. The tenth meeting of the symposium series will take place on December 21-22, 2017 and focus on the theme of "Spaces / Times / Peoples: Nature and Architectural History".

METU Architectural History Graduate Symposium 10 aims to discuss the spatial and cultural intersections of natural formations such as mountains, valleys, plains, rivers and sea extending from countrysides to coasts of cities with architectural entities such as transportation hubs, customs, infrastructural elements, and other related buildings types. Manifold and various interactions between nature and architecture can be studied in order to broaden the understanding of urban, architectural, and environmental history. The symposium calls for papers that explore not only how natural disasters and environmental problems like epidemics, fires, and earthquakes have shaped the spatial and historical formation of cities but also how architectural production has been integrated with and affected natural resources throughout history.

Eligibility: The symposium is open to graduate students and young researchers who have received their doctoral degrees since 2012.
