After the successful European Architectural History Network (EAHN) Second International Meeting in Brussels, the network is organizing a third pan-European meeting in Turin, Italy, in 2014. In accordance with the EAHN mission statement, this meeting again proposes to increase the visibility of the discipline, to foster transnational, interdisciplinary and multicultural approaches to the study of the built environment, and to facilitate the exchange of research results in the field. Though the scope of the meeting is European, members of the larger scholarly community are invited to submit proposals related not only to Europe’s geographical framework, but also to its transcontinental aspects. The main purpose of the meeting is to map the general state of research in disciplines related to the built environment, to promote discussion of current themes and concerns, and to foster new directions for research in the field. Session proposals are intended to cover different periods in the history of architecture and different approaches to the built environment, including landscape and urban history. Parallel sessions will consist of either five papers or four papers and a respondent, with time for dialogue and questions at the end. In addition, a limited number of roundtable debates addressing burning issues in the field will also take place at the meeting: they will typically consist of a discussion between panel members, encouraging the debate with the audience. The goal is to create a forum in which different scholars can present and discuss their ideas, research materials and methodologies.
