Boulouki 'Itinerant Workshop for Traditional Building Techniques' is inviting abstracts for the Symposium Under the Landscape, which will take place in the islands of Santorini and Therasia from 28th April to 1st May 2022. The Symposium is a two-fold event, comprising keynote lectures by distinguished thinkers and a three-day workshop for young researchers. We welcome proposals that, through the study of specific landscapes and their representations (contemporary and historical), highlight critical issues across the spectrum of sciences, social struggles and broader cultural production. In this way it builds on the holistic nature of landscape, which renders it into a useful concept for the coming together of different fields and forms of knowledge. Thus, this symposium aims to cross-fertilize different research strands with critical tools and concepts provided by fields such as architecture, engineering, geoscience, philosophy, cultural geography, environmental humanities, and ethnography; in ways that challenge divisions between the humanities and the ‘hard’ sciences, ‘nature’ and ‘culture’, ‘expert’ and ‘local’ knowledge, between the human and the non-human worlds.
We welcome contributions from researchers and practitioners from all disciplines that engage critically with landscape and its transformations (architecture, landscape architecture, environmental studies and ecology, geography, ethnography, history, archaeology, arts and art history, etc). For more information and to apply for the Symposium, please visit https://www.underthelandscape.net/symposium, and submit your abstract of no more than 350 words, along with a one-page CV, by 16 January 2022. Accepted participants will submit a full-paper by 30 March 2022.
