Symposium: Architectural History at ArkDes

ArkDes has started a long-term project to research its collection in order to curate a new permanent exhibition on architecture in Sweden. To learn from ongoing research about the history of architecture in Sweden we are now arranging a symposium. Welcome to submit an abstract!

What is currently being investigated, how are different theories, concepts, and practice-based methods influencing historical studies, how is the increasing internationalisation shaping the field and, above all, how could such knowledge be invested in a contemporary display while also contributing to the scholarship around Swedish architecture at large?

The symposium will take stock and cover the full range and breadth of knowledge generated by architecture and the built environment and aims to address research on topics mainly concerned with the 20th century to the present day. ArkDes ask for scientifically well-researched proposals that analyse architecture as a cultural, aesthetic, or socio-political phenomenon.

Until 4 November you can submit an abstract. Call for Papers 

The symposium is being organised by ArkDes (Mikael Andersson and Christina Pech, research coordinator).
