Colloque : « Second international meeting EAHN (European Architectural History Network) »

The time has come for scholars who share research and teaching objectives in architectural history to gather at a single pan-European meeting. In accordance with the EAHN mission statement, this meeting proposes to increase the visibility of the discipline, to foster transnational, interdisciplinary and multicultural approaches to the study of the built environment, and to facilitate the exchange of research results in the field. In 2010, the first EAHN conference was successfully held in Guimarães, Portugal. The second EAHN-conference will take place from May 31st to June 3rd in Brussels, in a distinguished historical venue; the Palais des Académies. Though the scope of the meeting is European, members of the larger scholarly community are invited to submit proposals related not only to Europe’s geographical framework, but also to its transcontinental aspects.
The main purpose of the meeting is to map the general state of research in disciplines related to the built environment, to promote discussion of current themes and concerns, and to foster new directions for research in the field.
