Call for Papers

** Deadline extended to 30 September **

Proposals for papers are sought for the fourth annual meeting of the All-Ireland Architecture Research Group on January 30-31 2015. In keeping with previous AIARG conferences the purpose of the fourth annual meeting is to offer a window into current architectural research in Ireland and beyond. In doing so it is hoped that the meeting will bring new areas of research to light, encourage collaboration and facilitate exchange of research results.

Following successful previous meetings in Belfast, Limerick and Dublin, the format of the annual meeting has been revised this year. A Call for Sessions was issued in July and after an enthusiastic response the conference team has made a selection of 12 thematic sessions which we hope will lead to an interesting, engaging and reflective conference. Each session will consist of four 20 minute papers with time for questions and discussion. A description of each session is given below.

Abstracts of no more than 300 words including title, should be submitted via email to the session chair and to aiargconference2015 [at]gmail.com by 30 September. Proposals may come from individuals or groups. For all participants, please include name, professional affiliation (if applicable), email address, contact number, and a current CV.

Please note: Only one abstract per author or co-author may be submitted. Session chairs may suggest changes to the abstract in order to ensure it addresses the session theme. Similarly, session chairs may recommend revisions to a paper and reserve the right to withhold a paper from the program. All speakers and session chairs will be required to register for the conference.

CFP: PLAYTHINGS IN EARLY MODERNITY: PARTY GAMES, WORD GAMES, MIND GAMES (edited collection)

September 15 2014

Contributions are sought for an interdisciplinary collection of essays to be edited by Allison Levy and published by Ashgate Publishing Co. in the new book series, Cultures of Play, 1300-1700 (see http://www.ashgate.com/default.aspx?page=5166; series editor Bret Rothstein). Dedicated to early modern playfulness, this series serves two purposes. First, it recounts the history of wit, humor, and games, from jokes and sermons, for instance, to backgammon and blind man’s buff. Second, in addressing its topic – ludic culture – broadly, Cultures of Play also provides a forum for reconceptualizing the play elements of early modern economic, political, religious, and social life.

Within this framework, PLAYTHINGS IN EARLY MODERNITY: PARTY GAMES, WORD GAMES, MIND GAMES emphasizes the rules of the game(s) as well as the breaking of those rules: playmates and game changers, teammates and tricksters, matchmakers and deal breakers, gamblers and grifters, scripts and ventriloquism, charades and masquerades, game pieces and pawns. Thus, a ‘plaything’ is understood as both an object and a person, and play, in early modern Europe (1300-1700), is treated not merely as a pastime, a leisurely pursuit, but also as a pivotal part of daily life, a strategic psychosocial endeavor: Why do we play games – with and upon each other as well as ourselves? Who are the winners, and who are the losers? Desirable essays will also consider the spaces of play: from the stage to the street, from the pulpit to the piazza, from the bedroom to the brothel: What happens when players go ‘out of bounds,’ or when games go ‘too far’? We seek new and innovative scholarship at the nexus of material culture/the study of objects, performance studies, and game theory. We welcome proposals from a wide range of disciplines, including gender studies, childhood studies, history, languages and literature, theater history, religious studies, the history and philosophy of science, philosophy, psychology, and the history of art and visual culture.

PLAYTHINGS IN EARLY MODERNITY: PARTY GAMES, WORD GAMES, MIND GAMES will be an illustrated volume, with individual contributors responsible for any permission and/or art acquisition fees. Final essays, of approximately 8,000 words (incl. notes), and all accompanying b&w illustrations/permissions will be due no later than January 15, 2015. For consideration, please send an abstract (max. 500 words), a preliminary list of illustrations (if applicable), and a CV to Allison Levy (.(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)) by September 15, 2014. Notifications will be emailed by the end of September.

Architectural Design Research Symposium,

Venice

August 29 2014 - August 30 2014

This symposium provides a forum to reflect on the emergence of research through design in the context of Architectural Education and Critical Practice. As articulated in recent publications and on the evidence of postgraduate activity around the globe, design as the primary vehicle for research innovation has entered a confident and mature stage.

What are the themes that emerge from this body of work? What tactics have evolved through conceiving design as the core research method? What are the "unique national features and mentalities that continue to exist and flourish"? (Koolhaas, 2013)

The 2014 Venice Biennale and its theme of Fundamentals, provides a stimulating space in which to address these questions. This event is associated with the New Zealand exhibition at the 2014 Venice Architecture Biennale. The symposium will be held at the venue of the NZ exhibition, the Palazzo Pisani Santa Marina, Calle de le Erbe, Cannaregio.

Interested participants are invited to submit a 1000 word presentation.

Autonomy Reconsidered: Ethics in Architecture, Urbanism and Landscape

ISPA 2014 Conference

Delft, Netherlands

July 09 2014 - July 11 2014

Event web site

web site thumbnail available soon

Contemporary philosophy and architecture discourse alike marginalize the ethical dimension of architecture.  Yet, it seems that the ethical dimension in both architecture and philosophy has been compromised because both disciplines have not established a clear interdisciplinary understanding of autonomy. Together, and in service to both fields of study, we must reconsider what autonomy means for both architecture and philosophy, or rather, for architecture philosophy.
