Call for Expressions of Interest to Host the AHRA Research Student Symposium 2019. 2020, 2021

November 08 2017 - January 01 2018

The AHRA Steering Group is keen to receive Expressions of Interest to host the AHRA

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:


3.      Name of an invited speaker (ideally the invited speaker should speak about Research Practice or Methods) and how this speech will help forward the intentions of the symposium):

 

4.      Proposed venue(s):


5.      Confirmation of IT support on the day:


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)

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.

The Open Hand 2: Orientalism in the Pacific

Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand

September 09 2017

During The Open Hand 2: Orientalism in the Pacific, we want to resume the civic debate started during the first Open Hand symposium in 2014, about collaborative action in architecture, space, art and society, this time specifically in connection with community, geography, identity, displacement, migration, and history in the Pacific. Central to the symposium are the following questions: What are the opportunities, boundaries, and tensions experienced in diasporas here in the Pacific? Do we still view these phenomena through the lenses of the ‘Other,' or as exotic spaces of in-betweenness, or are we engaging with them differently now?
