Extrait du site : The University of Belgrade – Faculty of Architecture is pleased to announce the European Architectural History Network (EAHN) thematic conference Entangled Histories, Multiple Geographies to be held in Belgrade, Serbia on 14-17 October 2015. At the heart of the conference will be the question of architectural history as related to perplexing, competing and complementary perceptions and interpretations of the past, its geography and culture.
The focus will be on the multiple perceptual forms and interpretations of architecture and their entanglements regarding conditions of historicity, notions of geographical belonging, as well as concepts of cultural or political identity. Our aim is to bring together different responses to this general topic that come from both regional architectural historians and worldwide members of the EAHN.
The symbolic role of the conference venue – with its complex history and even more complicated interpretations of it – will serve as a vivid reminder of entanglement and multiplicity that we expect to be addressed by the participants. Simultaneously seen as European and Oriental, Balkan and Eastern European, multiethnic and ethno-nationalist, a latecomer to modernism or trapped in various cultural mythologies, Belgrade owes its plural identity to both synchronic and diachronic interpretations of its historical and spatial context.
In this sense, the complexity of historical experiences and processes, along with geographical convolutions – as constructed or mediated by architectural narratives – will be the thematic core of this conference. It may include all historical periods from antiquity to the present day and all the regions of the world. Our aim is to discuss how various narratives – in architectural history, theory or criticism – represent and reinforce broader cultural patterns by which we perceive interrelated phenomena of history, space and identity.
