Drawing Attention to the Periphery

October 25-27, 2023
United Kingdom

October 25-27, 2023
Panel session for AHRA conference on Situated Ecologies of Care
Portsmouth School of Architecture, UK.

Submission deadline for abstracts: June 12, 2023

This paper session asks: How is the periphery reconfigured against collective life, culture, grids, history, housing, imagination, infrastructures, institutions, labour, media, monuments, nature, otherness, places and non-places, repetition, technology, and beauty? How is the periphery cultivated, occupied, and organised? What expression does the periphery take; formal, spatial, conceptual, typological? Who cares for the periphery? What are the narratives of love and loathing of the periphery? How to draw the periphery?

The organizers welcome papers that investigate peripheral conditions, drawing attention to the strangely familiar and the memorably unfamiliar; the events, encounters, forms, ideas, and narratives of the periphery. This session places equal weight on drawing and writing. Consequently the organizers invite papers that use critical interpretive methods in dialogue with inventive modes of representation to closely read the contemporary urban periphery.

Please submit abstract proposals with a maximum of 2 images/drawings.
