Call for Session Proposals | EAHN 2020, Edinburgh

Posted in Calls for Papers by Editor on November 8, 2018

From EAHN:

European Architectural History Network Sixth International Meeting
University of Edinburgh, 10–13 June 2020

Proposals due by 31 December 2018

EAHN2020 takes place at the University of Edinburgh. The call for sessions and roundtable proposals is now open, with details available here.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1995, Edinburgh has a well-preserved Medieval Old Town, a New Town built in the early 19th century on Enlightenment principles, and some of the UK’s best examples of post-war modernism. Edinburgh is also the seat of the remarkable Scottish Parliament designed by Miralles Tagliabue EMBT, which opened in 2004. Edinburgh is a city in which questions of architectural history are unusually live: What to build, what not to build, and what to preserve are questions at the centre of both local and national political debate. EAHN2020 will be based in the central George Square campus and will make use of the extraordinary Playfair Library, amongst other notable buildings. Join us for an extensive programme of architectural tours, of the city and the region. EAHN2020 promises to be an outstanding conference. It will be accompanied by an exhibition at the Talbot Rice Gallery, with four specially commissioned works of art on an architectural theme.

Proposals are sought in two basic formats: (1) a session and (2) a roundtable debate. A session should consist of 4–5 paper presentations, with a respondent and time for dialogue and discussion at the end. A roundtable debate should be an organised as a discussion between panel members, and the format would suit topics of particular urgency or contemporary relevance. Roundtables should also aim to activate audience discussion as far as possible. Sessions and roundtables may be chaired by more than one person.

Anyone wishing to chair a session or a roundtable debate is invited to submit proposals by 31 December 2018. Chairs should make clear whether their proposal is a session or a roundtable. Please note that EAHN is self-funding, and chairs are expected to provide all their conference expenses, including travel and accommodation.
