Keynote Speaker: Professor emeritus Gernot Böhme
(Technical University of Darmstadt, Germany)



We invite you to address in a 20 minute presentation questions of cultural and experiential atmospheres, technification and affect. For instance, what are the roles of emotion and imagination in the context of lapses in ideals of subject integrity and the immersion in affective states? What is the role, politically, culturally, creatively, of felt or non-conscious states and excesses of affect in the context of late capital? What does being moved mean historically and in contemporary senses for thinking design practices spanning cities, architecture, scenography, interiors, objects?


The full call for papers is available at


Please send a 500-word abstract and a short cv to Andrew Douglas (.(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)) by 24 June. Abstracts will be double-blind refereed and, if accepted, published on the Interstices website ( Notifications will be sent out by 22 July 2013.

We look forward to your abstract!

Studies in Art Historiography: Open Call for Contributions

July 26 2013

Studies in Art Historiography, published by Ashgate welcomes contributions from architectural historians:
Much recent historiography has focused on scholars of 'Art History' but many of these made considerable contributions to architectural history, from Heinrich Wölfflin whose Renaissance und Barock is essentially architectural history, to Rudolf Wittkower whose impact is usually assessed in relation to the architectural profession and Modernist architecture. Cornelius Gurlitt, Geoffrey Scott, Hans Sedlmayr, Nikolaus Pevsner, Colin Rowe, Venturi and Scott Brown are just some of the names that come to mind and Studies in Art Historiography welcomes proposals for volumes dedicated to relevant themes in architectural historiography as well as individual studies of significant figures in the field.
Submission guidelines are available at
