EAHN Business Meeting, Haifa 2014

The EAHN Annual Business Meeting 2014 will take place from 27 February to 2 March 2014 in Haifa, Israel.

The Architectural Heritage Research Center (AHRC) at the Faculty of Architecture and Urban Planning, Technion in Haifa will be hosting the Annual Business Meeting of the EAHN, during the symposium “History in Conflict” (see below).
All committee members and general members are cordially invited to attend the meeting. Please contact the EAHN Office at office@eahn.org as soon as possible, but no later than 30 November 2013, if you would like to attend.

History in Conflict
During the interwar years the British developed Haifa as a port city-a Mediterranean outlet to their empire. Ever since, the city is shared by members of different communities- Israeli Jews, Palestinian Arabs, and others- who are consistently entangled in the overarching dynamics of the Arab-Israeli conflict. Today, with a Jewish majority and calm yet unbalanced co-existence, Haifa presents an opportunity to discuss architectural history in conflict, and its role in challenging the political boundaries of a mixed city and the civic responsibility toward its citizens.
Note: The main venue of the meeting will be the Faculty of Architecture and Urban Planning, Technion, Technion City, Haifa. Simultaneously we are negotiating additional venues in the city with participating NGOs, some of which have already confirmed their collaboration.
