Call for Abstracts ! (Open now)
We are what we build and how we build; thus, the study of Construction History is now more than ever at the centre of current debates as to the shape of a sustainable future for humankind. Under the main theme “History of Construction Cultures”, the Congress will provide an opportunity to celebrate and expand our understanding of the ways in which everyday building activities have been perceived and experienced in different cultures, times and places.
The call for abstracts is open!
The general call for abstracts invites proposals as single contributions dealing with a broad range of construction history topics as well as to be included in thematic sessions.
Topics cover a broad range of construction history subjects (construction determinants and their relation with design, extraction and processing of materials, site management, works execution processes, knowledge transfer, actors, machines, tools, building legislation, construction - politics, economy and society, etc. Proposals can approach these subjects from any time period (from ancient times to the 20th century), have any geographical scope (local to intercontinental) and discuss any type of buildings and structures (e.g. vaults; shells; spatial structures; trusses; bridges; industrial/residential/public/religious; stadiums and pavilions; military constructions; infrastructures and public works).
Thematic sessions are the result of a previous successful call collecting a significant number of proposals from senior and young researchers coming from all over the world (New Zealand, Australia, China, Mexico, Canada, Germany, Spain, France, Portugal, United Kingdom, Belgium, Russia and Switzerland) aiming to cover important problematics, historical periods and different regions of the globe.
