EAHN Urban Representations Group meeting: Capturing Urban Emotions

Type: Calls For Papers [View all]
Posted by: European Architectural History Network
Deadline: Sun, January 7th, 2024

Capturing Urban Emotions


Considering cities in periods of transformation and change, we solicit papers that analyze critically the capacity of visual representations of any time period or geography to convey the emotions that such challenges evoke: hope and anticipation, but also fear, prejudice and anxiety. We welcome short, focused presentations that meaningfully relate your research to the expression of emotion through urban representations. What emotions have prompted the production of a city image? How does that emotional expression reflect, deny, overlook, or resist biases, distortions, and manipulations? What values or motivations animate the emotional content of the image and how has that affected its form and use? To what extent can the image, whether map, perspectival view, painting, photo, film, etc. be used to understand the identity of the city? 


Max. 250 word proposal & short bio by January 7, 2024.
