22–23 March 2019: What is Unique about Cornish Buildings? (Cornwall)
The Cornish Buildings Group in association with Historic England will host a two-day conference to celebrate 50 years of the Group, at a venue to be announced. New and challenging paper submissions are invited to explore and discuss the conference question: What is unique about Cornish buildings? The theme will unite aspects of Cornish architectural design with distinctiveness and exclusivity. The Group welcome contributions from any area or discipline relative to the past, present and future of buildings in Cornwall and how they impact and affect the natural environment.
The conference will embrace research looking at Cornish distinctiveness in the widest possible sense. Submissions of 250 words to Paul Holden FSA at email@example.com by 31 August 2018. Details online .
9 January 2019: New Insights into 16th- and 17th-Century British Architecture (London)

Proposals in the form of short abstracts (up to 250 words) are invited for papers of 30 minutes long. While the emphasis remains on new developments in architecture, we welcome proposals on related themes, such as decorative arts, gardens, sculpture and monuments.
They should be submitted by 31 August, and the final programme will be announced in September. Please include a short biography with your proposal. For further information contact Claire Gapper at Claire.firstname.lastname@example.org , or Paula Henderson at Henderson.email@example.com .
16–17 November: Reading the Country House (Manchester)
Country houses were made to be read – as symbols of power, political allegiance, taste and wealth. This places emphasis on the legibility of their architecture and decorative schemes, and their paintings, collections and furniture. It also draws our attention to the skills required to decode the signs. The messages and processes of reading were carried further by 18th- and 19th-century images: in private sketch books and journals, in engravings and in guidebooks. These allowed the country house to be read in very different ways, as did its appearance in novels as backdrop and social symbol. This conference at Manchester Metropolitan University seeks to explore such perspectives on reading the country house, and link them to how the house is read today, by managers, visitors and viewers of period dramas. Keynote speakers Phillip Lindley FSA (Loughborough) and Kathryn Sutherland (Oxford). If you would like to present a paper please send title and 200-word abstract with a very brief biography to Jon Stobart at firstname.lastname@example.org by 31 August 2018.

The journal Change Over Time: An International Journal of Conservation and the Built
Environment, published by the University of Pennsylvania Press, invites submissions for the Fall 2019
A HERITAGE OF WAR, CONFLICT, AND COMMEMORATION
Guest Editor: William Chapman
Sites of war and conflict that symbolize collective loss or that served as pivotal moments in
national or global history are sometimes elevated to the status of “heritage.” Battlefields, sites
of bombings, or places of terrorist attacks are all marked by human tragedy and acts of violence
and their interpretation is inherently conflictual. This issue of Change Over Time examines
heritage produced by violent acts of destruction and our efforts to commemorate the complex
narratives these sites embody.
To support the interpretation of sites characterized by absence, we have often erected
commemorative memorials of various forms from plaques and commissioned statuary to the
presentation of charred and damaged remnants of what stood before. Examples featuring the
vestiges of physical destruction include: the hull of the USS Arizona, sunk during Japan’s 7
December 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor; the skeleton of the domed administrative building that
marked the zero point of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima in August 1945; the stabilized walls of
St. Michael’s Cathedral in Coventry, a victim of the German Luftwaffe’s November 1940 blitz;
and the “Survivors’ Stairs,” the last remaining element of the World Trade Center following its
destruction on 11 September 2001. In this issue, we invite contributors to interrogate the types
and nature of heritage produced out of war and conflict, the forms of its commemoration, and
the challenges associated with its conservation. We encourage contributors to consider the
influence of class, politics, and culture in commemorative expressions; the technical and
conceptual challenges of conserving objects or places of destruction; inclusive or conflicting
(re)interpretation; and evolving perceptions of places over time.
We welcome contributions representing a broad array of geographic, cultural, temporal, and
historical contexts that may or may not include vestiges of destruction but that do address the
complex attributes of collective place based tragedy. Submissions may include, but are not
limited to, case studies, theoretical explorations, and evaluations of current practices or policies
as they pertain to the conservation and commemoration of heritage of war and conflict.
Abstracts of 200-300 words are due 1 August 2018. Authors will be notified of provisional
paper acceptance by 1 September 2018. Final manuscript submissions will be due late
Articles are generally restricted to 7,500 or fewer words (the approximate equivalent to thirty
pages of double-spaced, twelve-point type) and may include up to ten images. See Author

RMB DOCOMOMO CONFERENCE CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
100 Years Bauhaus: Which interest do we take in Modern Movement today?
01 March 2019, Akademie der Künste, Berlin, Germany
DOCOMOMO Deutschland, the Detmold School of Architecture and Interior Architecture and the project ‘Reuse of Modernist Buildings (RMB)’ invite you to the 16th DO-COMOMO Germany & RMB Conference. This first event in Berlin on the 1st of March 2019 at the Akademie der Künste continues the tradition of the Karlsruhe DOCOMOMO Germany Conferences. The EU project RMB initiates a pedagogical framework on the European level based on common definitions, methods, and approaches for the ‘reuse’ of modern buildings, with the aim of offering a ‘Joint Master on Reuse of Modernist Buildings’. In this context, the conference will take place in a new format as a combination of invited keynote speeches and selected scientific lectures – in 2019 with the theme: 100 years Bauhaus: Which interest do we take in Modern Movement today?
DOCOMOMO Deutschland DOCOMOMO Germany takes the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus as an opportunity to discuss the significance of modernity in the 21st century. The focus should not be on the Bauhaus itself, but on the concepts, visions and impulses emanating from modern move-ment. They should be related to today’s social, economic, cultural and in particular creative issues. Are the social, spatial and constructional concepts formulated by moden movement and post-war modernism still sustain-able today? What role do cultural and climatic conditions play in the preser-vation, renovation and transformation of spaces, buildings and modern movement sites? How can the basic ideas of classical modernism be continued 100 years later and thus contribute to solving current challenges? What contribution must academic and vocational training make and which for-mats are suitable for this?
The invited keynote speakers will comment on these questions and in particular introduce the role of architecture as a planning and design discipline. David Chipperfield will report on the preserva-tion and transformation of the listed National Gallery of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe in Berlin, which challenges the icons of modernity in conceptual and constructive terms. Minsuk-Cho Minsuk-Cho from Korea won the Golden Lion as curator of the Korean Pavilion at the 2014 Venice Biennale. He will talk about modernity in Korea with a special focus on his restoration and expansion of the French Embassy in Seoul. The building of Kim Jung-eup, a former LeCorbusier employee, is one of Korea’s most important modern buildings. Wiel Arets Wiel Arets was Dean at the IIT for five years, succeeding Mies van der Rohe as an architecture teacher and working in a restored building de-signed by Mies van der Rohe in Chicago. He has a close connection to the legacy of the Bauhaus in the USA. In his speech, he will comment on the significance of the mod race today, among other things, based on his design for the Antwerp Tower. In the evening there will be a moderated podium discussion with the speakers
The event will be accompanied by various excursions to sites of modern movement and post-war modernism in Berlin. These take place on Thursday and Saturday before and after the conference: Hansaviertel, Neue Nationalgalerie, Akademie der Künste. Further information later.
Akademie der Künste, Hanseatenweg 10, 1055 Berlin-Tiergarten, U-Bahn Hansaplatz

Towards Transformative Practice Frameworks: Planners, Professional Agency & Sustainable Urbanism
Call details at this link
Context: In the UK, a number of our part-time students (young practitioners) seem to be disappointed by what they see as planners having a limited ability to make a difference – And they also appear to be unaware of the range of strategies the preceding generation in the 1990s adopted – to change the status quo – for example, on planning’s role in promoting Sustainable Design and Construction at the time.
One aim of this Thematic Issue is to capture the inspiring legacy of pro-active sustainable planning practices from various perspectives of the recent past – And to use that record to look to the future role & potential opportunities to move the sustainable urbanism agenda forward, regardless of neoliberal barriers.
Another aim is to generate a discussion between Educators and Practitioners about planning expertise and emerging forms of agency – to enable frameworks for future transformative practices to emerge. Consequently, we would also welcome, and would look to include a couple of commentaries, opinion pieces and considered replies from readers – to the papers in this issue.
The theme of agency in planning is also relevant to designers experience of interacting with planners – and critical papers / case studies from a range of (academic, activist, design practitioner, &/or community) perspectives would be particularly welcome.
Please send us an expression of interest with your potential topic – Abstracts due by 15th Nov 2018.
