The goal is to provide a platform to discuss a much neglected aspect in urban historiography – rural forms of governance over space and how these forms have interacted with imperial or transregional edicts concerning use of resources.
A Different Perspective for the Atlantic Routes: Impressions and Exchanges in Transoceanic Journeys from the 16th to the 19th Century
If the common thread proposed is that of the activity of the Dutch West India Company, the project also aims to consider the whole vast cultural, diplomatic, artistic, scientific, anthropological and gastronomic panorama that the approach to such a topic necessarily brings with itself, and will therefore also evaluate the tangencies and interactions with travels and exchanges also made by other European states and kingdoms in the period considered.

Middle East Technical University Graduate Program in Architectural History organizes a series of symposiums bi-annually, open to graduate students and researchers who have recently completed their Ph.D. studies.
The conference will delve into the intersection between the built environment and new emerging ecologies, exploring the impact of digitalization on interior architecture and its relationship to computational ecologies, social media, non-human relations, postnatural territories, videogames, and artificial intelligence.
From farms and agricultural homesteads that served historic markets to ethnic food enclaves, the city is an experiment in democracy, architecture, and flavor. How has the Washington metropolitan area facilitated the production and dissemination of foodstuffs across the region? How have patterns of work shaped patterns of eating? How does a focus on food generate new types of research methodologies?
This issue of Stoà does not question the need to recognise, manage and capitalise on these contingencies, be they theoretical, cultural, disciplinary, technical, legal, economic, political, social or otherwise.
