  • Reuse Reconsidered Conference, Brown University, September 15-17, 2017

    Providence | Dates: 29 Jan – 14 Apr, 2017
    Reuse Reconsidered September 15-17, 2017 Brown University, Providence RI Spolia. Appropriation. Palimpsests. Afterlives…These terms, and others, have been employed by scholars across disciplines to describe the reuse of architecture and material culture. This conference aims to advance current scholarship by exploring some of these terms and unpacking the phenomenon throughout history and across cultures. From the Mexica reuse of Olmec relics to the fascist appropriation of historic styles in building projects—to name two examples—societies have given new meanings to objects, architectonic fragments, buildings, and styles by repurposing them for new contexts. The field of reuse studies has grown rapidly in the last three decades. In the United States, this is a more recent conversation, particularly as a result of 2006’s “The Mirror of Spolia: Premodern Practice and Postmodern Theory” colloquium at the Clark Art Institute. The colloquium, and subsequent edited volume Reuse Value, covered a wide range of fields and time periods. In the years since, other academic forums have taken a more focused approach, such as Wesleyan University’s “Monuments as Palimpsests” symposium and a College Art Association session on reuse in the ancient world. While acknowledging the importance of these more focused conversations, this conference aims to broaden the conversation once again. It seeks to unite scholars, from graduate students to senior faculty members, that study a variety of time periods, cultures, and types of reuse. This cross-disciplinary conference will explore the complex and multivalent motivations behind the reuse of cultural heritage. It will also seek to expand how we understand the phenomenon of cultural identity in relationship to the appropriation, memorialization, and reimaging of the past. We imagine that papers could address questions including, but not limited to: • How do cultures (re)employ objects, buildings, or styles from the past as part of the definition of themselves in their present? • What is the role of the architect/patron in the act of reuse? • How does the cultural biography of the reused object or building inform its use in new contexts? • Why do certain things (buildings, styles, time periods) get called upon for a new use while others do not? • Why and how are specific buildings or cities reimagined in new contexts? • How is the history of museums and antiquarianism connected to the motivations behind reuse? Abstracts (up to 300 words) and a CV should be sent to: Reuse.Reconsidered@gmail.com by April 14, 2017. Applicants will be notified by mid-May. Papers should be approximately 20 minutes. Any questions should be addressed Lia Dykstra at Reuse.Reconsidered@gmail.com.

  • National Park Roads: Reconciling the Machine and the Garden

    Washington, DC | Dates: 08 – 08 Feb, 2017
    Millions of visitors tour national parks every year, but few consider when, where, how or why the roads they travel on were built. This presentation highlights the unique qualities of national park roads, relates them to European precedents and the Olmstedian tradition, and examines their role in shaping the national park experience. Not only do park roads determine what most visitors see and how they see it, but decisions about park roads epitomize the central challenge of national park stewardship: balancing preservation and access in America’s most treasured landscapes. Park roads have been celebrated as technical and aesthetic masterpieces, hailed as democratizing influences, and vilified for invading pristine wilderness with the sights, sounds, and smells of civilization. Based on his recently released book, National Park Roads: A Legacy in the American Landscape, Davis’s recounting of efforts to balance the interests of motorists, wilderness advocates, highway engineers, and other stakeholders offers a fresh perspective on national park history while providing insights into evolving ideas about the role of nature, recreation, and technology in American society. As the National Park Service’s senior historian for park historic structures and cultural landscapes, Tim Davis combines interdisciplinary research with preservation outreach. His writings on the American landscape have appeared in numerous books and journals. His newly released volume, National Park Roads: A Legacy in the American Landscape, highlights the unique qualities of national park roads, details their development and examines their role in shaping the national park experience. 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, $15.00 for non-members (reduced admission for non-members!).

  • CFP: Imagined Forms: Modeling and Material Culture

    Newark | Dates: 25 Jan – 15 Feb, 2017
    “Imagined Forms: Modeling and Material Culture”
     
    November 17-18, 2017
     
    A symposium hosted by the
    Center for Material Culture Studies, University of Delaware,
    and the Hagley Museum and Library, Delaware
     
    Keynote Speakers:
     
    Johanna Drucker, UCLA
    Peter Galison, Harvard University
     
     
    As testimony, test, or proposal, models of all sorts record, revise, and reinvent the world.  From toy miniatures to computer simulations, modeling is a primary means by which we make sense of and act upon our material lives, the lives of others and the culture at large.  Everyone models: from artists and designers to prototype machinists and engineers to children.  Models may be provisional or idealized—rehearsals of things yet to be or representations of those that already exist—professional or slapdash, sustained or ephemeral.  In particular, models, whether prospective or mimetic, have long animated disciplines and discourses that center on knowledge formation and innovation.  Models can represent existing conventions or visionary inventions; in both cases models are scalar constructions with the potential for affective, aesthetic, conceptual, and technological effects. Inspired by the Hagley Museum’s extensive collection of patent models—nearly 900 items made between 1809 and 1899—this interdisciplinary conference  seeks to highlight modeling as both a fundamental human activity and an inevitably material practice.
     
    “Imagined Forms: Modeling and Material Culture” inaugurates a biennial conference series sponsored by the Center for Material Culture Studies at the University of Delaware. We invite submissions from all disciplines—including art and architecture, art history, comparative literature, digital humanities, English, history, history of science, and media studies—that critically investigate the function and form of models, the materials and methods of simulation and representation, questions of scale and perception, experiment and presentation, and the limits of modeling.
     
    Please send abstracts of max. 300 words, with a brief CV of no more than two pages, by February 15, 2017 tomaterialculture@udel.edu.
     
    For information see http://www.materialculture.udel.edu/.

  • CFP: Footprint #22: Exploring Architectural Form: A Configurative Triad

    Dates: 25 Jan – 01 May, 2017
    This issue of Footprint aims to explore the discussions that currently gravitate around the question of architectural form, by inviting architects to reflect on the latest developments in the field of formal studies within architectural and urban theory, design, research, and pedagogy.

    Footprint 22 aims to collect a comprehensive set of state-of-the-art approaches to the question of architectural and urban form, and thus provide an updated examination of formal, morphological and typological investigations.

    As editors, we welcome a broad spectrum of interpretations, ranging from theoretical and practical applications of form-based analyses, to epistemological and pedagogical implementations of these formal analyses in diverse contexts.

    Aware of the weight that form-centred theories have had in postmodern architectural research, and in order to establish a historical landmark for this edition, the emergence of neo-rationalism in the early 1960s will serve as a point of departure. However, we deem this a landmark that is meant to be superseded.

    The neo-rationalist aim to overcome the shortcomings of modernist functionalism by contesting the idea that a building’s form resulted from its use, certainly marked a shift within architectural theory, and favoured the emergence of a strain of architectural thinking that currently offers multiple and contradictory approaches to the way architectural form is generated, understood, and communicated. Beyond their neo-rationalist predecessors, architects and authors like Peter Eisenman, Fumihiko Maki, Nicolas Bourriaud, Carlos Martí Arís and Antonio Armesto, Mario Carpo, Pier Vittorio Aureli, and Sanford Kwinter, have more recently reclaimed important parts of the form-centred architectural discourse, with diverse intentions, and from different vantage points. Furthermore, multiple lines of inquiry which depart from the question of architectural form, still orient the production of knowledge in universities and institutes throughout the world, far beyond Western Europe, where neo-rationalism originated and thrived.

    Designers, scholars, researchers and teachers throughout the globe have found in the definition of a formal basis of architecture a valuable practical and intellectual tool, while morpho-typological approaches are still broadly used in architectural education. Within such a diversified field of studies, form-centred approaches to architecture have been severely criticised, especially for their reductive consideration of matter, with many contemporary theorists asking for a formal theory which resists taxonomies.

    With these antecedents in mind, we wish to examine architectural form today, from a threefold perspective. First, we would like to study the way in which form is produced, dealt with, or confronted by contemporary designers. Secondly, we would like to know how architects examine and study form in discursive (i.e communicative, theoretical, historiographical, but also representational) terms. Finally, we would like to evaluate the way in which innovative formal analyses affect architectural form at all scales within the built environment.

    Footprint 22 will follow a tripartite trajectory, advancing an understanding of formal studies which transverses ontological, epistemological and onto-epistemological perspectives. These perspectives directly correspond to the notions of morphogenesis, formalism and in-formation.

    Following this sequence, from an ontological perspective, morphogenetic studies deal with the processes in which matter actively co-produces its various formal expressions. Synchronously, formal discourse and morpho-typological studies function as an analytical tool for the examination of these processes. Both morphogenetic explorations and formalist approaches, while imperative for any formal study, do not suffice unless complemented with their intensive in-between: in-formation, or the way in which formal discourses and their outcomes influence form itself, and vice versa.

    We trust that by interrelating these three approaches, we can contribute to contemporary formal explorations by substituting an object-based approach with one that examines the reciprocity of formal emergence. Emulating Joseph Kosuth’s well-known triptychs, we aim to situate the question of architectural form in our time between a series of interpretations that transcend a supposed autonomy as well as a univocal cultural or epistemological origin.

    With these objectives in mind, we encourage various types of contributions. We welcome contributions consisting of full scientific articles that examine formal studies in pedagogy and research, critical reflections on the question of form in contemporary architecture, and theoretical and historiographical approaches that assess the formal discourse of architecture. In addition, we are expecting graphic and/or textually reasoned analyses of projects and buildings which suggest innovations in architectural form. Finally, we invite contributions in the form of review articles that critically reassess key literature related to this topic.

    Footprint #22 will be published in Spring 2018.

    Authors of full articles (6000-8000 words) are requested to submit their contributions to the editors before 1 May, 2017. Full articles will go through a double blind peer-review process. Review articles (2000–4000 words) and reasoned analyses (2000 words, 2 – 5 images) will be selected by the editors on the basis of a short summary (maximum 500 words) which must also be submitted before 1 May, 2017. All authors should include a short bio (300 words) with their submissions. We ask authors to refer to Footprint Author Guidelines, available at footprint.tudelt.nl.

  • CFP: Charrette 5(1) - Spring 2018 - From the Global South: Pedagogical Encounters in Architecture

    Dates: 25 Jan – 10 Mar, 2017
    Charrette 5(1) - Spring 2018 - Call for Contributions - From the Global
    South: Pedagogical Encounters in Architecture

    Guest Editor: Ashraf M Salama, Professor and Head of Architecture,
    University of Strathclyde, Glasgow
    Editor: Ruth Morrow, Professor of Architecture, Queen's University Belfast
    Assistant Editor: James Benedict Brown, Senior Lecturer, De Montfort
    University, Leicester

    Charrette, the journal of the Association of Architectural Educators (AAE),
    first published in 2013, is now well established as a pioneering journal
    for academics, practitioners, and theorists engaged in design teaching
    practices and theoretical debates.  For this issue (Volume 5, Issue 1),
    Charrette invites papers and essays that address positions, experiences,
    and experiments which are undertaken in the Global South by either local or
    international academics or both.

    THEME

    The main body of literature on architectural education and design pedagogy
    is primarily produced in the English-speaking world and is interrogated,
    debated, and reproduced mainly in the larger context of Western Europe and
    North America. The architectural academic community in other parts of the
    world; the Global South, is deeply influenced by such a discourse as well
    as by various pedagogical trends typically introduced in Western academia
    to reflect the needs of budding professionals and the profession of
    architecture at large. In essence, these represent tendencies that are
    instigated and practiced within the contextual particularities of Western
    academia including the ambitions and constraints of academic institutions,
    the professional milieu, and the way in which architecture is practiced and
    produced. Classically, such an influence manifests itself in the fact that
    in any discussion about pedagogy in architecture in Global South? academia
    the discourse which characterizes the Global North dictates and thus
    overshadows opportunities for developing another parallel, or in fact
    different but equally important, discourse which can be generated and
    developed to address other unique particularities that characterize the
    Global South. The thrust here is not to create a competing discourse but to
    complement what is already there.

    THE QUESTIONS

    This call for Volume 5 Issue 1 of Charrette maintains that architectural
    education discourse can be enriched and its scope can be expanded when both
    historical and contemporary imperatives are clearly contextualized. Issues
    of tradition, identity, modernity, vernacularism, post-colonialism,
    poverty, globalization are a few to name in this context. How they derive
    within architectural curricula and how they act as drivers for studio
    projects are two important points that potential contributors are invited
    to interrogate and debate. The presence of international professional and
    ethical standards which must apply equally to both Global North and Global
    South raises a third point on how international accreditation approaches
    and processes address the particularities of the Global South. Other points
    may include issues related to the way in which international partnership
    can inform studio practices in different parts of the world, and the
    potentials, validity, and effectiveness of international summer schools.

    POSSIBLE TOPICS FOR ARTICLES

    Underlying the theme of ?From the Global South: Pedagogical Encounters in
    Architecture? and the preceding questions contributions are invited to
    address one or more of these topics:

    - Tradition, Identity, and Modernity in Architectural Education
    - The Impact of Globalization on Design Studio Teaching Practices
    - Post-Colonial Discourse in Architectural Pedagogy
    - Poverty, Community Building, and Community Development
    - Virtual Design Studios and Global South/Global North Dialectics
    - International Accreditation: Approaches, Processes, and Experiences
    - Validity and Effectiveness of International Partnerships and Summer
    Schools

    SUBMISSION FORMATS

    - Essays 5,000 ? 8,000 words (including all references and endnotes).
    Essays must demonstrate their intellectual and theoretical context, method
    and data, and have a clear conclusion.
    - Projects 3,000 ? 5,000 words (including all references and endnotes).

  • “Paris – Capital of Modernity”: Spring Seminar in Paris for Chinese Scholars

    Paris | Dates: 09 – 26 May, 2017
    Paris, May 9 - 26, 2017
    Deadline: Feb 19, 2017

    Call for Applications
    “Paris – Capital of Modernity”: Spring Seminar in Paris for Chinese Scholars

    The German Center for Art History in Paris welcomes applications from junior scholars and doctoral students from Greater China for a spring seminar titled “Paris – Capital of Modernity,” which will focus on French 19th- and 20th-century art. The seminar will take place from May 9th to May 26th, 2017 in Paris at the German Center for Art History and at several museums and research institutes in the French capital. 
    Participants will receive funding for transportation, lodging, and meals. 
    Scholars interested in participating are invited to attend a two-day introduction to the program on March 23th and 24th, 2017, in Beijing, China. Limited funding is available for prospective participants who attend the Beijing meeting.  Attendance at the introductory meeting in Beijing is not required for admission into the seminar, but is strongly encouraged. 
    The seminar is possible thanks to generous support from the Getty Foundation through its Connecting Art Histories initiative.

    Paris – Capital of Modernity

    Paris serves as an outstanding example of Western modernism, since the city met the challenges that came with industrialization and developed a new infrastructure. The seminar’s temporal scope will be defined by the first and last world’s fairs in Paris: 1855 and 1937. The 1855 world’s fair marked the beginning of a new era, which dedicated itself to modernity; the exhibition of 1937—with, among other aspects, the strengthening of totalitarian systems on the eve of World War II and its decidedly anti-modern self-representation—marks its end. 
    With the electrification of the city and the construction of the metro system, Paris created the infrastructure of a smoothly running modern metropolis. Modern Art flourished in Paris, and the influence of the avant-garde can still be seen today in the neighborhoods of Montmartre and Montparnasse as well as in the city’s many museums devoted to modernism. Along with visits to Montmartre and Montparnasse, the seminar will include special visits to such museums as the Petit Palais, the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, the national Musée d’Orsay, and the Musée National d’Art Moderne in the Centre Georges Pompidou. These trips will be guided by specialist scholars and curators.
    The academic content of the program will be presented through lectures and discussions held at the German Center for Art History and through the aforementioned visits to museums, where original works of art will be examined and discussed.  Additional site visits will include guided walks through Paris designed to help to contextualize modernity within the city itself.  
    The seminar’s co-directors are Thomas Kirchner (Director of the German Center for Art History in Paris) and Godehard Janzing (Deputy Director of the German Center for Art History in Paris). Lecturers include Hollis Clayson (Northwestern University) and Jean-Louis Cohen (New York University).
    The seminar aims to facilitate dialogue between participants, lecturers, museum curators and members of the German Center for Art History in Paris and to enrich and strengthen study of French Art in China.

    To be eligible, candidates must:
    1.    be citizens of Greater China (Mainland, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and 
    Macau), and have a passport from one of these areas. Scholars who are currently residing outside of Greater China are also eligible and are encouraged to apply.
    2.    teach or study Western art or culture. Preference will be given 
    to art historians, architectural historians and historians of applied art, but scholars and students of other fields are welcome to apply.
    3.    be able to follow a lecture and participate in class discussions 
    in English, the languages used in all lectures and discussions. 
    Shortlisted applicants will be interviewed via Skype.
    4.    be enrolled in a PhD program, or have completed a PhD over the 
    last five years
    a.    students must have already completed their Master’s degree.
    b.    recent graduates must have a PhD certificate that bears a date 
    after January 1st,  2012.
