Call for Papers for 2014 issue of studies in History and Theory of Architecture
The journal of studies in History and Theory of Architecture (ITA), published by the Department of Architectural History & Theory and Heritage Conservation at ‘Ion Mincu’ University of Architecture and Urbanism in Bucharest, Romania, invites international submissions for the 2014 issue
“Indigenous Aliens. Mediators of Architectural Modernity”
The theme of the 2014 sITA volume is related to the inspiring title of the 14th Architecture Biennale in Venice, calling for insights into Absorbing Modernity: 1914 – 2014. The curators’ assumption is that the last century witnessed a progressive erasure of local and national characteristics, which were replaced by a universal modern language. This obvious observation creates however too crude an image of modernity, which is worth looking into more attentively.
The topic will deal with urban and architectural modernisation in ‘peripheral’ European areas. These phenomena would be studied as they were shaped by national or regional seminal personalities or groups (architects, urban planners, schools, professors, theorists, writers, etc.), figures who played key roles in their local contexts. Our working hypothesis is that such personalities played a much more important role in the modernisation of ‘peripheral’ areas / cultures than they did in ‘core’ ones.
