Call for papers: "Architecture, photography, and the contemporary past"

Published on 29 November, 2012

Workshop arranged by the Valand Academy at the University of Gothenburg, the Department of Architecture at Chalmers University of Technology, and the Swedish Ernst Cassirer Society (SECS), February 18–19, 2013

More than any of the material traces left behind by the last two hundred years of historical change, architecture and photography contribute both to our contemporary skyline and to our image of the past. Their common history thus provides an indispensable background to every discussion of heritage.
To direct attention to this problem, the Valand Academy at the University of Gothenburg, the Department of Architecture at Chalmers University of Technology, and the Swedish Ernst Cassirer Society (SECS) arrange a 1½-day workshop around the topic “Architecture, photography, and the contemporary past” at the intersection between research in the humanities and the fine arts. Our keynote speaker is the contemporary archaeologist Victor Buchli, reader in Material Culture at the University College of London.
Day: February 18–19, 2013   Place: the Glass House, Valand Academy
