digital cultural heritage: FUTURE VISIONS 2017 London Symposium, UCL November 13-15

We are pleased to announce digital cultural heritage: FUTURE VISIONS 2017 symposium to be held on November 13-15 2017, at University College London, hosted by the Bartlett Real Estate Institute and supported by the Architecture Theory Criticism History research centre and The University of Queensland. 

This symposium is designed to encourage critical debate across a wide range of heritage-related disciplines. We welcome papers from practitioners and academics working in cultural heritage and related fields such as architecture, anthropology, archaeology, geography, media studies, museum studies and tourism. We particularly encourage papers that explore the challenges of digitising tangible and intangible cultural heritage, those that identify issues with digitisation and digital interaction, and those that address the theoretical challenges posed by digital cultural heritage.

Research Student Symposium, an annual event that usually takes place in Spring.

If you wish to apply, please respond to the following: 


1.      Name of your institution and contact person:

 
2.      Your proposed dates in Spring of 2019, 2020 and/or 2021:

6.      Confirmation that the symposium will be free of charge to delegates:

 


Notes to consider:

a)      This is our Research Student symposium not our International Conference (our International conference is held in November each year.) The Research Student Symposium is for the presentation of work by scholars in the early phase of their research careers, i.e., those undertaking postgraduate Masters and PhD research.

b)      Since AHRA is a non-profit making organisation we are unable to contribute money toward the organisation of the symposium.

c)      AHRA Steering Group and Advisory Board members are happy to help with reviewing abstracts.

d)      We are particularly interested in receiving calls from schools which have not hosted the event before.

 

Expressions of interest should be sent to the chair of the Architectural Humanities Research Association Conferences/ Symposia Working Group, Dr Juliet Odgers: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

Building Beauty. Ecologic Design and Construction Process

Naples, Italy

October 16 2017

Event web site

web site thumbnail available soon

The program is practice-based, offering an immersive experience of hands-on construction that links together self development, ecological thinking and building skills: students learn low-tech construction and decoration techniques over an intensive, fully human, feeling-based building process. Learning is organized in three axis: 1. Construction and Cultivation; 2. Seminars: leading international scholars from a wide range of scientific fields explore with students the potential of a truly interdisciplinary approach to design and construction where complexity and uncertainty are the positive condition of beauty generation; speakers tackle important challenges in the current international agenda of sustainable architecture and resilient communities. 3. Self, Community and Space: practical movement/art/dance/therapy workshops aimed at recognizing and trust our feelings in relation to space. Feelings are referred to space, the body-mind, and the way they interact in hands-on physical work of making.
