CfP: Learning Places: TechNetEMPIRE International Conference. Lisbon and Online, 3-4 February 2022.

Call for Papers: Learning Places: TechNetEMPIRE International Conference. Lisbon and Online, 3-4 February 2022. 

This event aims at tackling the possibility of a comparative view on how, when and where learning institutions of technical and scientific knowledge were organized across empires. By comparing different case studies in fields of knowledge and transformation of the built environment – military engineering, cartography, among others – the goal is to establish a comparative frame of the political-scientific enterprise of empires, across geographies and times. The conference proposes a comparative reading between formal or non-formal structures of learning and individual agency abilities, that enables the understanding of transformations, influences and entanglements in different geographies from multiple spheres of knowledge and practices.

Proposals for papers (maximum 300 words) must be submitted together with a biographical note (maximum 100 words) in English. Please submit by June 20, 2021, using this form.

The conference will be held on 3-4 February, 2022, and authors of accepted papers will be invited to submit their articles until 15 March.

More information can be found here or on the project website.
