        Subject: CFP, deadline Sept 2015: Big Data and Architecture


This is a final call to members of the list who may want to consider (or forward to those interested) a call for papers for a session at next year's European Architectural History Network conference in Dublin 2-4 June 2016 on Big Data and Architectural Historiography (broadly understood, including any discussion of urbanism and/or the built environment).

In line with the current discussions of the "digital humanities", and in the context of political critiques of big data urbanism as potentially undemocratic, this session aims at rethinking, discussing and developing architectural research based on large data sets. We encourage submissions of papers which address both historical examples of the use of large data sets for architectural production since the late 19th century and in a global perspective as well as contemporary scholarly uses of "big data" for analysis of historical and contemporary built environments. The large data sets may be numerical, visual/typological, textual, or otherwise defined by the proposed submission. We are especially looking for papers which analyze data by means of digital tools, techniques, and media, which may include graphic methods of knowledge production (rather than simply visualization).

For more information, see: http://www.h-net.org/announce/show.cgi?ID=222048

The paper submission process is now open and the deadline is 30 September 2015. Thanks for considering! Yours, Paul
