CFP: EAUH 2018 – “Women and the City: The Changing Role of Women in Urban Renewal since 1989
Call for Paper
for International Conference on Urban History 2018 under Session SS48 EAUH 2018
“Women and the City: The Changing Role of Women in Urban Renewal since 1989”
Keywords: women; gender; urban renewal; urban resilience; urban policies; public spaces; safer cities.
The contribution of women architects, urban planners and designers to their profession has been for long minimised or overlooked by ‘seminal’ and mainstream histories, despite the fact that all over the world and to different extents, women have reacted with inventiveness to their profession’s restrictive and sometimes discriminatory practices by engendering innovations to the field. This topic is timely as proved by the European cultural cooperation project “MoMoWo – Women’s creativity since the Modern Movement”.
Paper proposals can only be submitted online, via the EAUH2018 website.
To submit a paper proposal, registration is required at https://eauh2018.ccmgs.it/users/.
Abstracts of paper proposals should not exceed 450 words.
Deadline for paper proposals submission: October 5, 2017.
Notification of paper acceptance: December 1, 2017.
