Appel à communications - 5e Rencontre internationale de l’European Architectural History Network

National Library of Estonia, Tallinn - 14-16 juin 2018

European Architectural History Network (EAHN) is organising its fifth pan-European meeting in Tallinn, Estonia, from June 14–16, 2018. In accordance with its mission statement, the meeting aims to increase the visibility of the discipline ; to foster transcultural, transnational and interdisciplinary approaches to the study of the built environment ; and to facilitate the exchange of research results in the field. Although the scope of the meeting is European, members of the larger scholarly community are invited to submit proposals related not only to European architecture but also to that of the rest of the world.

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 field. 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, there will be a number of roundtable debates addressing burning issues in the field. Proposals are sought for roundtable debates that re-map, re-define or outline the current state of the discipline. They will consist of a discussion between panel members, but will also encourage debate with the audience. The goal is to create a forum for scholars to present and discuss their ideas, research materials and methodologies.

Duties of the chairs of session and of round-tables include : selecting from the proposals submitted for presentation by the agreed deadline ; communicating the list of speakers and titles to the conference organisers by the agreed deadline ; and submitting material for the proceedings to the conference organisers by the agreed deadline.
Chairs will not be eligible for selection as speakers in their own or any other session or round table at the conference. It will be the responsibility of each chair to ensure that the intellectual content selected for their session or round-table is of a publishable standard—editorial assistance is available for non-native English speakers. Sessions should be unique to EAHN. Should a similar or identical proposal be found to have been presented or proposed at another conference, the Scientific Committee reserves the right to withdraw that session or presentation from the EAHN programme.

All chairs and selected presenters and speakers are required to obtain membership of EAHN (available for an annual membership fee at prior to registration at the conference. Chairs are expected to pursue their own institutional or other support for membership, registration, travel and accommodation. Unfortunately, EAHN cannot assist with these expenses.

Proposals in English, of no more than 400 words, including a session or round-table title, should summarise the subject and the premise. Please include name, professional affiliation (if applicable), address, telephone, e-mail address and a current CV. Proposals and short CVs should be submitted by e-mail, including the texts in both the body of the mail and as attachments.

Session and round-table proposals will be selected on the basis of merit and the need to organize a well-balanced programme. Please note : preference will be given to proposals from chairs who have not hosted a session in the previous biennial conference (Dublin 2016). The International Scientific Committee may organise additional open sessions, depending on the response to this call.
