After the successful European Architectural History Network (EAHN) Second International Meeting in
Brussels, the network is organizing a third pan-European
meeting in Turin, Italy, in 2014. In accordance with the
EAHN mission statement, this meeting again proposes to
increase the visibility of the discipline, to foster
transnational, interdisciplinary and multicultural
approaches to the study of the built environment, and to
facilitate the exchange of research results in the field.
Though the scope of the meeting is European, members of
the larger scholarly community are invited to submit
proposals related not only to Europe’s geographical
framework, but also to its transcontinental aspects.
The main purpose of the meeting is to map the general
state of research in disciplines related to the built
environment, to promote discussion of current themes and
concerns, and to foster new directions for research in the
Session proposals are intended to cover different
periods in the history of architecture and different
approaches to the built environment, including landscape
and urban history.
Parallel sessions will consist of
either five papers or four papers and a respondent, with
time for dialogue and questions at the end. In addition, a
limited number of roundtable debates addressing burning
issues in the field will also take place at the meeting: they will
typically consist of a discussion between panel members, encouraging the debate with the audience.
The goal is to
create a forum in which different scholars can present and
discuss their ideas, research materials and methodologies.
24 sessions and 3 roundtable proposals have been selected, from a total of 100 submissions, on the
basis of merit and the need to organize a well-balanced
program. A few open sessions, special sessions or
roundtables will be organized by the Scientific Committee,
depending on the response to the call for papers.
