The organisers of this one-day multidisciplinary conference seek to solicit proposals for 20-minute papers that consider the creation, expression and representation of architecture, architectural space and the built environment from students and scholars working within all subject-areas across the Arts and Humanities. Papers should seek to address the creation, understanding, circulation and cultural impact of both real and imaginary sites of architectural construction throughout time, either in Britain or in other national and international contexts. Original and creative accounts of how architecture might variously be ‘read’ and interpreted across such disciplines as literature, law, history, art history, heritage studies, politics, film and media studies and philosophy are particularly welcome.
PLENARY SPEAKERS: Rosemary Hill and Olivia Horsfall Turner
300-word proposals should be emailed to the conference organisers, Dr Dale Townshend and Dr Peter N. Lindfield (firstname.lastname@example.org), by 26 September 2015. The School of Arts and Humanities at the University of Stirling has generously agreed to fund a number of postgraduate travel-bursaries for this event. Please contact the conference organisers for further details.
This conference is the first event in a series of outputs arising from the AHRC-funded project, Writing Britain’s Ruins, 1700–1850: The Architectural Imagination at the University of Stirling (June 2015—December 2016).
