EVENT: ‘This Thing Called Theory’ Open School Event. London, 30 May 2019

Architectural Association School of Architecture
AA PhD Programme & Architectural Humanities Research Association (AHRA)
The Barrel Vault, Architectural Association School of Architecture, 36 Bedford Square, London WC1B 3ES
Speakers: Mark Cousins (AA), Lorens Holm (U Dundee, AHRA), Joel McKim (Birkbeck), Mark Morris (AA), Doreen Bernath (AA HTS, Leeds Beckett), Teresa Stoppani (AA HTS, AHRA)
Stemming from the Architectural Humanities Research Association (AHRA) 2015 conference, the open seminar series ‘This Thing Called Theory’ continues to explore the status of theory in architecture, proposing theory as a form of architectural practice that opposes the instrumentalization of its use.
After Making Theories (2017) and Double Crossing (2018), the third event in the series, Theory and Histories, proposes a discussion on the current proliferation of architectural history narratives, and of the different ways of constructing, curating and communicating them.
The full programme of the event is available here.
Event Organisers: Doreen Bernath and Teresa Stoppani
