Charrette (ISSN 2054-6718), the journal of the Association of Architectural Educators (AAE), first published in 2013, is now firmly established as a leading journal for practitioners and theorists engaged in innovative and significant architectural education and research. For this issue (Autumn 2016), the Guest Editor, Gemma Barton, (Senior Lecturer, College of Art, Design and Media, University of Brighton) invites papers and projects which explore the role, position, impact and relationships of transient teachers in architecture;

- How do you/they contribute?
- What do you/they offer/withdraw from teaching experience?
- How do you/they experience and are experienced by HE, professional bodies, offices
- What influence do you/they have over the schools/departments?
- Does 0 hours = 0 power?
- Do you/they feel a sense of belonging?
- Fractional contracts: How much time is enough time, efficiency vs commitment
- Is the transition into FT employment supported?
- Is the hiring process fair and easy to navigate?

With a focus on teaching-practitioners, practicising-teachers this issue will delve into the world of VL, HPL, zero hours, adjunct, PTE, FTE, fixed-term, temporary, supplier and many more. Whether identifying as ‘academics’ or otherwise, a healthy proportion of architecture educators operate within this itinerant structure yet as a topic it is under-investigated and under-represented in academic research. As such this call for papers hopes to receive submissions from the full spectrum of architecture educators internationally and encourages submissions from students, graduates, representatives, early career academics and those with part-time/flexible agreements with universities that unearth data, patterns, emotions, experiences, dreams and realities.

We welcome submissions that;

- look at the effects on the potential for research activity that these
roles create or inhibit within the architectural education framework
- present and analyse individual, departmental, institutional, organisational, geographical patterns of data
- present quantitative data on ‘non-full-time’ academics
- examine the relationships between teaching practitioners, institutions, practice, students, full time academics
- demonstrate the ‘products’ of teaching practitioners
- document the lives, hinter-lives and profiles of transient tutors
- set out histories and futures of this itinerant group of architectural educators.
- consider the impact on student learning experience of ‘non-full-time’
academics

Connecting Narratives: Film as Research’ is an interdisciplinary one-day symposium to discuss the impact of film as a research tool and as a method of communicating research. Invited internationally and nationally recognised filmmaking researchers, emerging scholars in the Faculty and industry professionals working in the fields of architecture, film production, fine arts, anthropology, public health and publishing who work with filmmaking research praxis will discuss Approaches, Methods and Publication as Film. Our Guest Speakers will debate critical methodological approaches (not journalistic) to storytelling practice in research-led filmmaking, and expand our understanding of the use of film to extend knowledge transfer beyond the University.

7th Symposium of Architecture, Culture and Spirituality

Nature and the Ordinary: Sacred Foundations of Architecture, Culture and Spirituality

Ghost Ranch, New Mexico, United States of America

The Forum for Architecture, Culture and Spirituality invites participation in its Seventh Annual Symposium. ACS 7 will take place in the serene setting of the vast and inspiring New Mexico desert in the southwest of the United States. We selected this remarkable place to invite us to contemplate and live the theme of the symposium: “Nature and the Ordinary: Sacred Foundations of Architecture, Culture and Spirituality.”  Although the symposium will focus on landscape and culture in the context of the ‘quotidian,’ we will consider submissions addressing other issues related to ACS and include them in at least one open session during ACS7. These sessions will provide a forum to present what is currently being studied, discussed, practiced, or taught in the area of architecture, culture and spirituality.

As in previous ACS meetings, the symposium will be structured around several subtopics focusing on various aspects of the general theme, and the number of attendees will be kept small on purpose to secure an atmosphere conducive to personal connections and in-depth dialogue. Optional meditation will be offered each morning and there will be some free time for connecting to oneself, other people and the surroundings.
