  • Architecture and Feminisms: Ecologies, Economies, Technologies

    Stockholm | Dates: 17 – 17 Nov, 2016
    KTH Stockholm, School of Architecture, November 17 - 19, 2016 Deadline for abstracts: Apr 15, 2016 13th Architectural Humanities Research Association conference ARCHITECTURE AND FEMINISMS: ECOLOGIES, ECONOMIES, TECHNOLOGIES The 2016 AHRA conference will address connections between architecture and feminisms with an emphasis on plural expressions of feminist identity and non-identity, acknowledging that feminist claims continues to be tested and contested. Between architecture and feminisms our specific focus will be upon transversal relations across ecologies, economies and technologies. Specifically, we are concerned with the exploration of ecologies of practice, the drawing out of alternative economies, and experimentation with mixed technologies, from craft to advanced computational technologies. We invite responses to our six thematic areas: Ecologies – Economies – Technologies – Histories – Pedagogies – Styles We assume that each thematic area inherently organises diverse ecologies of practice, and that the question of precarious mental, social, environmental ecologies pertains to all. We invite individual and group proposals for 20 minute papers and full sessions from architectural historians, theorists, designers and practitioners, as well as those working on relevant themes across the design disciplines, in the humanities and social sciences. We welcome proposals that explore alternative means of academic dissemination through film, small exhibition, performance.

  • Spanish Italy and the Iberian Americas

    Dates: 21 – 31 Mar, 2016
    Call for Applications ~ 12 junior positions to join the research group "Spanish Italy and the Iberian Americas" A Getty Foundation Connecting Art Histories Project co-directed by Michael Cole and Alessandra Russo, Columbia University The co-directors of the Connecting Art Histories project "Spanish Italy and the Iberian Americas” seek twelve junior scholars to join the research group during the period June 2016 to October 2017. Project participants will collaborate to discern the common dynamics and study the artistic ties that developed between these two regions in the early modern period, especially during the sixteenth century. Moving beyond the concerns of national heritage and microhistory, the project depends on scholars interested in changing their conceptions about their “home” fields of “Renaissance” Italian or “Colonial” Latin American art. The project will unfold in multiple stages, centered on travel and conversation. Throughout the project, the junior scholars and a group of senior faculty will collaborate and communicate regularly, sharing bibliographies and contributing monthly to a research blog. As a group, participants will travel to Italy in January 2017 to visit and discuss works in historically Spanish regions of Italy. Each member will be responsible for introducing a series of works, engaging information across multiple fields. Six months after the visits in Italy, in a second phase of the project, participants will convene in New York City for a workshop. Each scholar will present a paper responding to the conversation and insights elicited during the trip, and considering how those ideas might provide prospects for the study of arts in the Iberian Americas. While in New York, the group will also visit archives and museums in the city. The project will cover travel expenses to Italy and New York. Recent PhDs to junior faculty members working on early modern Italian or Latin American art are eligible to apply, though preference will be given to those who did degrees or are working in Italian and Latin American universities. Candidates should submit a statement (maximum three pages) explaining their interest in participating; a description (maximum two pages) of a current project; a CV; two letters of recommendation; and a writing sample. Application materials should be sent as a single PDF, clearly labeled, to by March 31st, 2016.

  • Bringing Back the Mack: The Recovery and Restoration of the Mackintosh Building at The Glasgow School of Art

    Dates: 18 Mar – 30 Apr, 2016
    PhD studentship funded in collaboration by The Glasgow School of Art and Historic Environment Scotland

    Funding: Home fees (UK & EU) plus £14,000 annual stipend for three years full-time.

    Start Date: Summer 2016

    Application Deadline: 30 April 2016

    Interviews taking place: 26 May 2016

    For questions regarding this studentship, contact:

    Dr Robyne Calvert, Mackintosh Research Fellow,

    Applications are invited for a full-time, fully funded PhD studentship based at The Glasgow School of Art, and supervised in collaboration with Historic Environment Scotland.

    The Glasgow School of Art by Charles Rennie Mackintosh is an iconic building of international significance, and its damage through fire in May 2014 has led to substantial initiatives from the UK and Scottish governments and others to aid restoration of the building and interiors. Led by Dr Robyne Calvert (GSA) and Dr Ewan Hyslop (HES), this PhD project will develop a summative analysis of the restoration of the Mackintosh building through: a survey of historical change in its spatial arrangement and use; a series of focused case studies on material conservation and reconstruction; and critical reflection on the recovery project that will significantly contribute to the field of heritage studies. Through a deeper understanding of the history of use and spatial change inside the building, this research will be able to feed into and advise in ‘real time’ current restoration work as well as related digital heritage projects; and inform new strategic plans for the wider GSA estate and for the learning & teaching, and research environments. Case studies that focus on the recovery, analysis, and reconstruction of the interiors, furniture and fittings affected by the fire will highlight the methods and approaches of the restoration process. Finally, the research will contribute to the body of knowledge on heritage and conservation through offering critical reflection on the restoration project, from its immediate impact through to project completion, which will form a model for heritage crisis management.
  • Arthur A. Shurcliff at Colonial Williamsburg

    Washington, DC | Dates: 22 – 22 Mar, 2016
    By fortune and to a degree by happenstance Arthur Shurcliff took part in a significant early 20th century “restoration” project: the fashioning of Colonial Williamsburg. Within the unusualness of taking on the preservation of an entire town, Shurcliff’s role was without precedent, and one he was uniquely suited to assume. He served as chief landscape architect for design and planning decisions made between the inception of what was called The Restoration in 1928, until 1941 when he retired. The complex issues that arose during the restoration, recreation, and creation within the quiet, little town—discussions that have grown and multiplied over the ensuing years— are the subject of this presentation. ELIZABETH HOPE CUSHING, Ph.D., is the author of a book, Arthur A. Shurcliff: Design Preservation, and the Creation of the Colonial Williamsburg Landscape based on her doctoral dissertation for the American and New England Studies program at Boston University. She is also a coauthor, with Keith N. Morgan and Roger Reed, of Community by Design, released in 2013. Cushing is a practicing landscape historian who consults, writes, and lectures on landscape matters. She has written cultural landscape history reports for the Taft Art Museum in Cincinnati, the National Park Service, the Department of Conservation and Recreation of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and other institutions and agencies. Her contributor credits include Pioneers of American Landscape Design (McGraw Hill Companies, 2000), Design with Culture: Claiming America’s Landscape Heritage (University of Virginia Press, 2005), Shaping the American Landscape (University of Virginia Press, 2009), and Drawing Toward Home (Historic New England, 2010). She has received a grant from the Gill Family Foundation to write a biography of Frederick Law Olmsted Jr., which she is currently researching and writing. The First Congregational United Church of Christ 945 G Street NW, Washington, DC 20001 6:30 pm – reception, 7:00 pm – lecture Reservations are not required. $10.00 for Latrobe Chapter members, student members (full time) free with ID, $18.00 for non-members.

  • Call for Papers - International Conference - AR (t) CHITECTURE- 19-21 April 2016

    Haifa | Dates: 08 – 17 Mar, 2016
    An International Conference at The Technion – Israel Institute of Technology Faculty of Architecture and Town Planning Call for Papers Good architecture brings forth a thick reality of experience. To create poetic local places (buildings, landscapes, and urban design projects), the architect has to embody the environment in which his architectural creation takes place. Meaningful architectural making always reflects and addresses the time, place, desires and needs of a shared context, but at the same time interprets, ponders, questions and manipulates it, while bringing forth the living subjectivity of the architect. Artistic creation, in its different forms, allows the artist to embody the world poetically. Through drawing, painting, sculpture, film, music, dance, etc., the artist addresses collective cultural topics in a personal manner, questions, criticizes, and illuminates them, and thus actively participates in the shared reality. It is not uncommon that architects immerse themselves in art making. Usually their artistic creation has been regarded as separated from their architectural work. The conference will investigate the intricate and fascinating ties between artistic and architectural making. It will aim to question, exemplify, and evaluate the connection between these two fields. Why do architects preoccupy themselves with art making? What are the relationships between their artistic works and their architectural design? Does their art making enrich their architectural designs? Papers may articulate theoretical relationships between art making and architectural making, approach the relationship between these two fields as modes of thinking in recent decades. Papers may also attest to the relationship between art and architecture through case studies of specific architects, or shed light on the ties between specific works of art and architectural projects. Collaborative, multidisciplinary and historiographical papers are welcome. Important Dates: We are inviting historians, theoreticians, researchers and scholars of various fields and backgrounds to submit a paper proposal for one of the below listed topics. Please email a 500 words abstract, describing the paper proposal to the following email address: by March 17, 2016.

All accepted papers (based on abstract acceptation) would be included in a publication in the form of proceedings. Guidelines: Please keep title short and appealing. Mention the topic (from list of topics to be discussed in the conference), which your paper addresses. Images (72 dpi) may be included as part of the abstract if they enhance the text and are an integral element of the abstract. Please include: Author's full name (surname first).
