Histories in Conflict: Cities | Buildings | Landscapes. EAHN 2017, Jerusalem
Van Leer Jerusalem Institute, June 13-15 2017.

The deadline for submitting an abstract has now been extended to 3 January 2017

The European Architectural History Network (EAHN) is pleased to announce the EAHN’s third thematic conference Urban Histories in Conflict, to be held at the Van Leer Jerusalem Institute on June 13-15 2017. On the 50-year anniversary of the Israeli occupation of East Jerusalem and the contentious unification it legislated, the conference aims to open up questions about the purpose of writing histories of urban conflicts. We ask how historians can account for the predicaments of violence and uneven distributions of power in the built environment, particularly in the face of current worldwide geo-political crises.
We welcome papers that consider urban conflict and urge investigation into its related aspects of change and heterogeneity. Papers should be based on well-documented research that is primarily analytical and interpretative rather than descriptive in nature.
The full call for papers can be downloaded here.
Important Dates:
Abstract submission (extended deadline): 3rd January 2017
Abstract selection and notification of speakers: 13th January 2017
Full papers due: 1st May 2017
Conference: 13-15 June 2017
