Call for Papers: Women’s Creativity since the Modern Movement (1918-2018): Toward a New Perception and Reception. Turin, 13-16 June 2018

MoMoWo, Symposium 2018

After almost four years of successful project activities, and in accordance with the MoMoWo mission, the International Conference | Women’s Creativity since the Modern Movement (1918-2018): Toward a New Perception and Reception continues to increase the visibility of creative women, to foster in Europe and beyond interdisciplinary and multicultural approaches to the study of the built environment “from the spoon to the city”, and to facilitate the exchange of research results and professional practices in the fields of architecture, civil engineering and design.
Though the scope of the project is European, the scholarly and professionals communities are invited to submit papers related not only to Europe’s geographical framework but also its transcontinental aspects.
The main purpose of the MoMoWo Symposium is to map the general state of research about tangible and intangible cultural heritage created by women in 100 years, in order to give a new impetus to broaden studies in Europe and beyond.
MoMoWo welcomes papers extending from 1918 to the present time, and touching a variety of disciplines and approaches concerning the perception and reception of women’s creativity, including history of professions, history and theory of architecture and design, historiography, landscape and urban planning, protection and conservation of architecture and interior design.
The full call for papers, with more information and submission procedures, can be accessed at this link or downloaded here.
Abstracts (title, 200 characters spaces included, 5 keywords, authors affiliation, e-mail address) can be submitted until 31 October 2017.
