Globalizing Architectural Scholarship in Canada I

Regular session
9:00 AM, Thursday 26 May 2022 (1 hour 30 minutes)
Break (copy)   10:30 AM to 11:00 AM (30 minutes)

In recognition of the fact that Canadian practitioners, scholars, and students of architecture think, work, and act globally, this session invites submissions that are geographically unconstrained. The session welcomes case studies or analyses that illuminate how the transnational flow of ideas, people, and capital has changed the global built environment, including the multi-directional nature of exchanges between the so- called developing and developed worlds. How do local social and cultural contexts figure in the internationalization of urban and architectural practices? How has the mobility of models and media across space and time shaped the design of buildings and cities; and, in turn, how does the built environment encourage or impede these flows? Papers may be historical or contemporary in scope. However, as space is this session is limited, papers must offer original arguments, highlight specific methods, or draw attention to under- represented buildings, landscapes, and cities from around the world. Contributions from scholars working in fields other than architecture, such as urban studies, geography, environmental history, or science and technology studies, are especially welcome, as are contributions from designers and artists working at the intersection of research and practice.
