fThe Forum of Architecture, Culture and Spirituality announces its next annual Symposium. ACS 8 will take place in the historically significant, beautiful and enchanting town of New Harmony, Indiana. This place, through its remarkable history, offers the perfect opportunity to consider the relationships between Utopia, Architecture and Spirituality, the very topic of the ACS 8 Symposium. More specifically, ACS 8 asks us to look at utopia as an idea and ideal, real and imagined, in all of its ramifications for architecture and the built environment, culture, politics, and, especially, spirituality. ACS 8 asks us to reflect on utopias past, to explore utopia in the present reality, and to speculate on how designers can take up utopian ideas and action in the future.

ACS 8 will take place June 23-26, 2016. New Harmony, Indiana, is about 2.5 hours drive from Saint Louis (Missouri) and 2 hours from Louisville (Kentucky). ACS 8 is being organized by four co-chairs. In alphabetical order by last name, they are: Ben Jacks, Nancy Mangum McCaslin, Ben Nicholson, and Michelangelo Sabatino.

ACS 8 co-chairs kindly invite all individuals interested in participating in this event to submit 500-1000 extended abstracts. All work will be blind-peer reviewed by at least three separate scholars/practitioners. The submission deadline is Monday 18 January 2016. Please, visit the symposium website to learn about all the necessary details

CREAte, the research centre for architecture and the humanities at the Kent School of University, University of Kent, is holding a conference in collaboration with the Architectural Review which will bring together quite different traditions of writing about historic buildings. The special character of this conference is that speakers will be drawn from both academic and non-academic fields, and from a range of disciplines that touch on architectural experience and history. In this way we aim to offer a new experience for writers on architecture, interior design and urban space.

 

We are inviting papers from those in Architecture, English, History, Sociology, Film and Drama, Landscape Studies and related disciplines with a specialist interest in writing about buildings and urban spaces or experiences across different time periods. The common theme of the papers will be the uses of a variety of voices in creating architecture culture.

 

Writing Buildings will be a two-day conference on the subject of alternative ways of writing architectural history which will encourage experimentation in criticism through breaking disciplinary barriers. The programme will include papers from both academic disciplines and non-academic professions which engage with the built environment, for example, journalism, interior design and construction

The University of Kansas is convening a symposium that assembles internationally recognized thought leaders on the subject of critical engagement. These practitioners and their work are increasingly being highlighted at conferences, through exhibits, and in literature. Our symposium seeks to investigate the theoretical underpinnings of such work and translate these action-based community engagement efforts into interdisciplinary and theoretically-based scholarship. We will convene this group of scholars in order to establish a framework for the critical inquiry and review of the public impact of socially engaged discourse and design. The symposium will gather a group of scholars, practitioners, critics, and historians to discuss different aspects, forms, and features of social engagement that have developed across time and regions.

Abstract due: April 15, 2016
