32nd 'Joint Doctoral Seminar in History and Theory of Architecture'

Thursday 13 September 2018 - University of Antwerp

The architecture faculties and architectural engineering departments of Universiteit Antwerpen, KU Leuven, Université Catholique de Louvain, Université de Liège, Université Libre de Bruxelles, Universiteit Gent, Universiteit Hasselt and Vrije Universiteit Brussel are organizing the 32th edition of the Joint Doctoral Seminar (JDS) series in the History and Theory of Architecture on Thursday 13 September 2018.

The seminar will feature two types of presentations:

  • Plenary Lightning Talks (10’) presenting recently started PhD work or new research projects by junior or senior academics.
  • Workshop Presentations (10’) presenting a summary of an unpublished article or chapter of a PhD thesis in one of the three parallel workshops. This text will be circulated among the participants of the workshop beforehand. The participants in each workshop are asked to have read the papers. Both academics and junior researchers participating in the workshop will be invited to review and comment on the papers.

The two key note speakers, Graeme Brooker (Royal College of Art, London) and Tüüne-Kristine Vaikla (Estonian Academy of Arts, Tallinn)), will close the day with a double key lecture. Afterwards a reception will be offered.
