We invite you to participate in the academic conference on “Gender Issues in Art, Architecture and Urban Planning. Female Modernists”! It will be held on 11-12 March 2016 in Kyiv, in Zabolotny State Scientific Library of Architecture and Construction.
The cross-disciplinary conference aims at driving attention to gender issues and investigating the women’s role in modernist architecture, art and urban planning.
We invite to participate architectural and art historians, sociologists, architects, culture experts and other contiguous field experts, as well as postgraduate students interested in presentation and further publication of their academic works related to gender issues in architecture, art and urban planning.
The conference will host:
two thematic sections: one will be dedicated to theoretical and historical issues (woman as creator and subject of architecture and art), the other will be dedicated to practical and urban issues (woman as beneficiary of architectural space and object of project activities);
a round table featuring researchers and specialists, particularly hands-on architects from Ukraine and European countries. It will cast light on profession-related gender inequality encountered by women who work in the field of architecture.
If you are interested in participating in one of the two sections, you are welcome to submit the synopsis of your research containing at most 300 words and your brief curriculum vitae.
If you are interested in participating in the round table, you are welcome to submit an essay on your career in architecture or urban planning containing at most 300 words and your brief curriculum vitae.
Send the mentioned materials to firstname.lastname@example.org before 15 February 2016.
The conference is organized by NGO Urban Forms Center and Heinrich Böll Foundation’s Office in Ukraine.
