Call for Papers: Divergence in Architectural Research, doctorate symposium. Atlanta, 5-6 March 2020

Divergence in Architectural Research is an international doctorate symposium organized by the ConCave Ph.D. Student Group in the Georgia Institute of Technology School of Architecture.
The Ph.D. Symposium seeks to create a platform for sharing current research in architecture, with invited scholars and other doctoral students from architecture and allied fields. The symposium will engage the divergent aspects of architectural research as it is taking place today across epistemological frameworks, highlighting the emerging intersections in the belowmentioned topics:

  • Architectural History, Theory, and Society
  • Architecture, Culture, and Behavior
  • Design Methods, Computing, and Production
  • Design Technologies, Data and Performance
  • Urban studies, Systems and Ecologies

Doctoral students are invited to present their ongoing research and hope to expand the conversation around the state of agency in architecture research today.
The symposium will act as a nexus for connections with established scholars and fellowresearchers. Contributing researchers should be PhD students whose work emerges from the architectural domain. The Symposium will take place 5-6 March 2020, on the campus of Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, Georgia.
Please submit your paper abstract (500 words max.) with a short biographical note (150 words
max.) on the symposium website.
Deadline for Abstract Submission: 20 September 2019
For Submission, visit: https://arch.gatech.edu/divergence-symposium
