Deadline: January 16, 2018, at 5 pm CST

Conference Chair: Victoria Young, University of St. Thomas
Local Co-Chairs: Dietrich Neumann, Brown University, and Itohan Osayimwese, Brown University

The Society of Architectural Historians will offer a total of 36 paper sessions at its 2019 Annual International Conference in Providence, Rhode Island. The Society invites its members, including graduate students and independent scholars, representatives of SAH chapters and partner organizations, to chair a session at the conference. As SAH membership is required to chair or present research at the annual conference, non-members who wish to chair a session will be required to join SAH next August 2018 when conference registration opens for Session Chairs and Speakers.

Since the principal purpose of the SAH annual conference is to inform attendees of the general state of research in architectural history and related disciplines, session proposals covering every time period and all aspects of the built environment, including landscape and urban history, are encouraged.

Sessions may be theoretical, methodological, thematic, interdisciplinary, pedagogical, revisionist or documentary in premise and ambition and have broadly conceived or more narrowly focused subjects. Sessions that embrace cross-cultural, transnational and/or non-Western topics are particularly welcome. In every case, the subject should be clearly defined in critical and historical terms.

Proposals will be selected on the basis of merit and the need to create a well-balanced program. Topics exploring the architecture of the Providence and the greater region are encouraged.

Since late submissions cannot be considered, it is recommended that proposals be submitted well before the deadline. Last-minute submissions that fail posting in the online portal or are sent in error via email cannot be considered.

Submission Guidelines
Session proposals must be submitted online by 5:00 p.m. CST, Tuesday, January 16, 2018. The submission portal will close automatically at this time, and no further proposals will be accepted. Proposals will be reviewed and selected by a committee chaired by SAH Conference Chair Victoria Young.

Session proposals must include the following elements:

  1. A session title not longer than 65 characters, including spaces and punctuation
  2. Summary of the subject and the premise in no more than 500 words
  3. Name, professional affiliation (if applicable), address, telephone, and email address (Please ensure that the information you are providing matches, if applicable, an existing SAH profile/membership account to avoid misdirecting communications. If it does not match what SAH has on file, please update your existing member profile to match your current information.)
  4. A current CV (2 pages maximum)

Although the SAH membership is international, the annual conference is conducted in English. Therefore, all session proposals must be submitted in English and, if accepted, conducted in English.

SUBMIT YOUR SESSION PROPOSAL HERE

Only proposals submitted through the online portal can be considered.

Authors (maximum of 2) of accepted session proposals will be asked to draft a more concise call for papers of no more than 300 words. This will be posted online on April 3, 2018, and published in the April 2018 issue of the SAH Newsletter. For examples, see the 2018 Call for Papers (session descriptions begin on page 4).

To ensure broad participation in the SAH Annual International Conference, individuals are limited to the role of either a session chair OR a speaker. If you are selected as a session chair you may not submit a paper abstract to other sessions to be considered for speaking.

Each Session Chair and Speaker is expected to fund his or her own travel and related expenses to participate in the conference. A copy of the Session Chair and Speaker Agreement that includes deadlines and step-by-step processes will be distributed to both Session Chairs and Speakers. Session Chairs and Speakers are required to join SAH and pre-register for the conference starting in August 2018.

Sharing cities – Shaping cities: a research symposium

Sharing economy and collaborative consumption are attracting much interest for their business, legal and civic implications. Underexplored are instead the consequences of the spreading on sharing-based practices in the urban environmental and daily dynamics.

The ‘Sharing Cities – Shaping Cities (#ShapringCities)’ symposium aims at addressing if and how is sharing shaping cities, the way spaces are designed and lived if social interactions are escalated, the way habits and routines take place in the post-individualist society.

/ Key questions /

Key questions to be discussed at the symposium include:

  • How is ‘sharing’ shaping cities? Does it represent a paradigm shift with tangible and physical reverberation on urban form? How are shared mobility, work, inhabiting, energy and food provision reconfiguring urban and social fabric?
  • Are new lifestyles and practices related to sharing changing the use and design of spaces? To what extent sharing is triggering a production and consumption paradigm shift to be reflected in urban arrangements and infrastructures?
  • Does sharing increase the intensity of use of space and assets or rather increases them to meet expectations of convenience for urban lifestyles?
  • To what extent are these phenomena fostering more economically, socially and environmentally sustainable practices and cities?
  • How can policy makers and municipalities interact with these bottom-up phenomena and grassroots innovation to create more sustainable cities?

/ Submission of contributions and prospect book /

The symposium represents an opportunity to advance answers to above and related questions, especially (but not solely) in the fields of urban studies, urban planning and design, service design, geography, sociology, anthropology, and innovation studies. Attendees of the symposium are expected to address the key topics with highly critical approach and grounded on research findings from fieldwork and real case-study experience; collection of observations, mapping and interpretation of emerging phenomena representing clues that we are experiencing the dawn of a new urban era.

Up to twelve contributions to the symposium will be selected upon the submission of an extended abstract (up to 1,500 words, plus references) via email at sharingcities@polimi.it by 24th November 2017. Upon a double blind peer review by the scientific committee, selected contributions will be presented by the author(s) at the symposium. If interested, the full and revised version of the submitted contribution will be a chapter of a book to be proposed to highly ranked publisher.

 / Attending the symposium /

The symposium will be held on 5 to 6 March 2018, at Politecnico di Milano, in Milan.

There is no cost to attend and catering would be provided; however travel would be self-funded.

/ Important dates /

November 24 / Submission of extended abstracts

January 12 / Notification of acceptance

March 5-6 / Symposium in Milan

/ The team /

‘ShapringCities’ symposium is organised by the LabSimUrb ‘Fausto Curti’ research group at theDept. of Architecture and Urban Studies (DAStU) of Politecnico di Milano.

The research group is also involved in the European H2020 programme funded project ‘Sharing Cities’, more specifically in the context of the Milan municipality. Key questions to be addressed at the workshop emerged from this ongoing research.

Identities and the Cities: Urban Transformations, Transition and Change in Urban Image Construction

Call for Papers for the Panel:

Identities and the Cities: Urban Transformations, Transition and Change in Urban Image Construction

As part of
6th Euroacademia Forum of Critical Studies: Asking Big Questions Again
23 – 25 November 2017
Lucca, Tuscany, Italy
Deadline for Paper Proposals: 15th of September 2017

Panel Description:

Urban image construction is a reflection, expression and constitutive factor of local identity formation and dynamics. Cities simultaneously localize identities and connect them with wider global signs of utility, function and symbolic order. Elasticity of the label identity accommodates everything that surrounds us as presence or absence, persistence or change. As a theatrical scenery, cities change after each act, sometimes with discrete adaptations, sometimes with radical interventions. If the scenery is composed of streets, parks, roads, museums, monuments, shopping malls and buildings connected through the intricate network of the perpetual and cumulative actions of its inhabitants, every adaptation and intervention affects its multi-dimensional identities. Changes in urban visual identities unfold as a form of public art feeding from the immense potential of social imaginary significations accommodated by a time’s perception of stability, structure and continuity. Urban change is itself a production of meaning, interpretation and identity making practices.

As the chaotic canvases of cities are being stretched over a framework of identity, its further exploration seems more than appropriate. Amidst the incredibly rapid urban growth crowding more than half of the world population in towns and cities, the questions are only going to keep multiplying. How are city identities made and re-made, used and abused, imagined and narrated, politicised and communicated, expressed and projected, imposed and marketed? And above all, how do they thrive within the dynamic interpolation of the nexus of local-global, centre-periphery, urban – suburban, old and new. As out-dated as these dichotomies may sound, in many places their daily life is far from over. As old cities became new capitals and new capitals struggle for more capital, the challenges of maintaining public-driven collective identities in the face of cultural fragmentation and diversification, coupled with consumer-attractiveness is turning them into urban palimpsests. Urban environments reflect the human needs and values. In an increasingly globalized world, the human beings are becoming more citizens of the world than citizens of the cities. The increasing mobility of the new pilgrims of globalization creates more of the same in the logic of universalized urban functionality. Within this logic, the cities are now in the position to re-evaluate their impact on the world and shape their future in a manner that assumes a wider responsibility that evades a localized mentality. Urban local identities are becoming increasingly thin and rely strongly on negotiating a local specificity with universalized functionality and global responsibility. An increasing need for uniqueness and distinctiveness foster site-specificity aimed at placing a particular urban identity within a global economic hierarchy. Public art became essential for affirming distinctive local urban identities in a universe of serialization and commodification.

As the research on cultural identities of the city is becoming more abundant, this panel aims at adopting a wide-lens inter-disciplinary approach, while focusing on various processes affecting identities in the urban context in its global-regional-national-local interplay.

Some example of topics may include (but are not limited to):

•       Collective Memory, Identity and Urban Image Construction
•       Appropriation, Instrumentalisation and Functualisation of Public Spaces
•       Contemporary Nomadism and the City as a Common Denominator for Collective Identities
•       Architecture as ‘Politics with Bricks and Mortar’
•       History, Heritage and Urban Change
•       Urban Regeneration Projects, Landmark Buildings and ‘Starchitects’
•       Non-Places and (Non)Identity
•       Immigrants and the Cultural Identity of Cities
•       City Marketing and City Branding
•       Cities and Public Goods
•       European Capitals of Culture and European Identity
•       Cities and Sites of Memorialisation
•       Identity Creation and the Cultural Offer of the City
•       Urban Cultural Heritage as Identity-Anchor
•       Minor Places: Dominant Culture and Site-Specific Urban Identities
•       Creative Changes of the Cities
•       Art and Industry in Urban Development
•       Urban Aesthetics
•       Urban Installations
•       Critical Architecture
•       Urbanism and Social Intervention: Inclusion of the Marginalized
•       Centre/Periphery Nexuses in Contemporary Urban Development
•       Cities and the Quality of Life
•       Urban Landscapes and Sustainable Cities
•       Contemporary Cities and Environmental Responsibility
•       Ugliness, Kitsch and Value in Shaping Contemporary Urban Spaces
•       Urban Sites of Identification
•       Temporary Urban Interventions
•       Architecture as Public Art

CALL FOR PAPERS: Terrorism in Tourism Cities

International Journal of Tourism Cities is brought to you by the International Tourism Studies Association (ITSA)

TERRORISM IN TOURISM CITIES

Guest Editors:

Prof. Alastair Morrison, Purdue University, USA
Dr. Andres Coca-Stefaniak, University of Greenwich, UK 

Terrorism attacks in major cities (e.g. New York, Paris, Brussels, London, Barcelona) and their impact on the image of these global tourism destinations is a topic of growing interest to academics, industry practitioners and policy makers worldwide. The impact of recent terrorist attacks may extend beyond immediate image issues and to wider longer-term aspects such as the resilience of the destination’s brand, its overall competitiveness in global tourism markets and its attractiveness to major investors.

Although a number of studies have analysed the impact of security concerns linked to terrorism on the events industry (e.g., Hu and Goldblatt, 2005; Gordon et al., 2008) and tourism (see Sonmez and Graeffe, 1998; Goodrich, 2002), their scope to date remains somewhat limited with some considering economic impact (e.g., Pizam and Smith, 2000), visitor risk perceptions (e.g., Fuchs and Reichell, 2011; Korstanje, 2015), dark tourism (e.g., Seraphin and Seraphin, 2017), social theory (e.g., Mansfeld and Pizam, 2006) or tourism demand (e.g., Arana and Leon, 2008), with very few adopting a more strategic outlook as regards tourism destinations (Beirman, 2003; Paraskevas and Arendell, 2007). This themed issue seeks to redress this balance by addressing a major knowledge gap in our understanding of the longer term impacts of terrorism on the resilience of tourism destination brands (see Avraham, 2015), their overall competitiveness in the global tourism market and their attractiveness to major international investors.

The aims of this themed issue are as follows:

1.    To determine how acts of terrorism in affected cities influence these cities’ destination images and brands.

2.    To explore how consumers adapt their behaviours in the short- and long-term with respect to affected cities and their surrounding regions.

3.    To examine the strength of destination brand resilience in cities affected by terrorist acts.

4.    To analyze successful recovery strategies in tourism cities affected by terrorism.

5.    To review the overall impacts of terrorism aimed at visitors on global tourism.

6.    To analyze risk-taking profiles of consumers in the context of terrorism acts and their probability of occurrence.

We invite papers which engage with Terrorism in Tourism Cities in the following topics (indicative but not exhaustive themes):

•    Terrorism and destination brand resilience

•    Terrorism management frameworks for tourism cities

•    Destination image recovery after terrorism attacks

•    Visitor behaviour during and after terrorism attacks

•    Crisis management in tourism cities

•    Consumer perceptions of risk in visiting affected cities

•    Changes in activity behaviours of tourists in affected cities

•    Impacts of terrorist attacks on tourism regions

Interested authors should email their abstract (200-300 words) or proposal to Andres Coca-Stefaniak, a.coca-stefaniak@gre.ac.uk before November 15th, 2017.

•    Authors will be notified no later than December 1st, 2017 on the decision over their abstracts.

•    Full articles (6,000-8,000 words) should be submitted by March 31st, 2018. The format of guidelines is provided on the journal webpage: http://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/products/journals/author_guidelines.htm?id=ijtc

•    All manuscripts will undergo anonymous peer review.

Conference of PhDStudents & Early Career Researchers

2017 marks the centenary of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC). Originally named the Imperial War Graves Commission, the organisation emerged from the various bodies given responsibility for the war dead of the British Empire. Led by the remarkable Sir Fabian Ware, a man driven by a vision of imperial collaboration, the Commission took responsibility for a global project for the permanent commemoration of the dead. Finding solutions to the vast number of questions faced by the Commission was a delicate process, and it resulted in a unique form of remembrance which has left a deep impression on people across the world.

The Centre for War, Propaganda and Society, (School of History, University of Kent) and Gateways to the First World War (AHRC-funded World War One Engagement Centre) are hosting a conference for PhD students and Early Career Researchers in the CWGC’s centenary year to explore its work and legacies.

The conference will be held on the Canterbury campus at the University of Kent, 4-6 September 2017. Queries regarding access may be directed to 01227 823 158 or email accessibility@kent.ac.uk

We are keen to encourage exploration of a wide range of themes connected with the work of the Commission, including (but not confined to) issues of identities (including class, race, and gender), horticultural and architectural treatment, mourning and grief, landscape and space, belonging and ownership, tourism and pilgrimage, interaction between visitors and the communities occupying the zones around the cemeteries and memorials, different uses and interpretations of the cemeteries and memorials, comparisons with other commemoration schemes, on-going role of the CWGC and its future.

Proposals for papers of no longer than 25 minutes in length, and all other queries, should be sent to: Eileen Hartney (E.Hartney-204@kent.ac.uk) or telephone 01227 764000.

Closing date for proposals [no more than 350 words]: 10 April 2017

This conference is a Gateways collaboration with The Western Front Association.

Gateways to the First World War is one of the five AHRC funded WW1 Engagement Centres which have supported a vast range of community engagement activities since 2014.
