THE DEADLINE IS PASSED FOR THIS CFS.
After the successful 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 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, a limited number of roundtable debates addressing burning issues in the field will also take place at the meeting. Proposals are sought for roundtable debates that re-map, re-define, and outline the current discipline. They will typically consist of a discussion between panel members and encourage 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.
Scholars who wish to chair a session or a roundtable at the 2014 EAHN Meeting in Turin are invited to submit proposals by 16 December 2012 to Prof. Michela Rosso (email@example.com), General Chair of the EAHN Third International Meeting (Associate Professor at the Department of Architecture and Design, Politecnico di Torino, Viale Mattioli 39, 10125 Turin, Italy. Phone: +39 11 090 6509). The conference website will be online shortly.
By the time of registration for the conference, participating membership in the EAHN (with an annual membership fee) will be required to chair or present research at the meeting. A link on the website eahn.org is available to enable anyone to join the EAHN as a participating member.
Proposals in English of no more than 400 words, including a session or roundtable title, should summarize the subject and the premise. Please include name, professional affiliation (if applicable), address, telephone and fax numbers, e-mail address, and a current CV. Proposals and short CVs should be submitted by e-mail, including the text in both the body of the e-mail and in the attachment.
Session and roundtable proposals will be selected on the basis of merit and the need to organize a well-balanced program. A few open sessions, special sessions or roundtables may be organized by the Scientific Committee, depending on the response to the following call for papers.

In the last chapter of L’architecture au futur depuis 1889, Jean-Louis Cohen listed several “vanishing points” that, although barely visible in the distance, would allow architecture to escape the unrelenting aspiration for originality, newness, monumentality,...
