CFP: Thinking Architecture through Publication (Lisbon, 28-29 Sept. 2015)

Thinking Architecture through Publication
September 28 – 29, 2015
Deadline: Jun 5, 2015
 
Currently, there’s a widespread consensus that architectural magazines
have played a fundamental role in consecrating identities and giving
rise to new orders of thought on the practice and the representation of
architecture. Editing and projecting have thus become so closely linked
that it seems reasonable to claim that they share a common ground
beyond the contingencies of constructive practice, resting upon a web
of both conceptual and professional relationships.
 
Some authors have been taking periodical publications as important
research sources; as well as entities able to reconfigure the
theoretical, technical, disciplinary and discursive settings in which
they are grounded and the identity of their protagonists.
 
The international congress The site of discourse will place the
architectural magazine in the center of the debate, in order to
understand the place that such “printed object” occupies in the
definition of the contemporary architectural discourse  — in its
conceptual, theoretical, graphic, material dimensions. The aim is to
reflect on the culture of architectural periodical press in a
geographical and chronologically extended context, crossing
perspectives from different disciplinary traditions.
