Please be advised that attending this one-week in-residency component is required in order to successfully complete the course.
This training makes participants familiar with the principle characteristics of the industrial heritage and the array of tools and techniques used for its study, care, and use. The practical application of techniques in the analysis and documentation of industrial sites is a fundamental aspect of industrial heritage education, and beside the online component of the course, participation in one-week in residence project forms a central part of the training.

Participants will be able to analyze historic industrial artifacts, sites, and landscapes and identify and demonstrate industrial heritage’s most significant elements. They will exercise skills to develop management policies for heritage planning, sustainable repurposing and urban regeneration, research, museum collections and historic interpretation, and cultural tourism.
Everyone is welcome to register in this course. Participants can take the course either as part of their university studies (3 credits) or for professional development (as a non-program student).

ourth International Conference on Railway Technology: Research, Development and Maintenance

Incorporating: The Eighth International Symposium on Speed-up and Sustainable Technology for Railway and Maglev Systems (STECH2018)
3-7 September 2018 | Sitges, Barcelona, Spain

Call for Abstracts. Deadline for submission: 15 December 2017

Railways have always played a significant role in the development of the wealth creation capabilities of society. The early roman wagonways, the steam driven railways during the industrial revolution and the electric railways of the late nineteenth and twentieth century are just a few of the railway systems that have played a vital role in past infrastructure development. The search for a fast, reliable and cost effective means of transport that presents better energy efficiency and less impact on the environment has resulted in renewed interest and rapid development in railway technology. Following the success of many special sessions on railway technology, held over the last few years in the Civil-Comp Conference series, a new conference series was created in 2012. The first conference was held in: Las Palmas de Gran Canaria in 2012; the second in Ajaccio, Corsica, in 2014; and the third in Cagliari, Sardinia in 2016.

The themes for this conference will include (but are not limited to):

•Rolling Stock
•Infrastructure
•Energy and Environment
•Signalling and Communication
•Operations
•Strategies and Economics

We welcome your participation and look forward to receiving your abstracts.

“Promoting Diversity: Mobility, Creativity and Socio-Cultural Inclusion in East Asia”

17-18 March 2018

Rikkyo University, Ikebukuro Campus, Tokyo

Organized by Monash Asia Institute, Monash University & Trans-East-Asia Multiculturalism Project (TEAM)

Supported by Kajima Foundation

In a globalized world in which people’s mobility and accompanying human encounter and exchange have been more and more intensifying, the promotion of diversity in society is a shared key issue. The current promotion of diversity tends to be more economy-driven as business sectors put an emphasis on the enhancement of diversity in terms of women, LGBTIs, and foreign nationals/people of diverse ethnic backgrounds to make the workplace more innovative, productive and globally competitive. The viewpoints on the promotion of diversity for economic activities and cultural perceptions are not identical as the emphasis on the pragmatic utility and inclusive promotion of diversity are often incommensurable. What kind of diversity is being promoted, while not others, is a crucial question. At the same time, it is an open question whether the business-driven stress on the promotion of diversity is entirely unconnected to and has no (unintended) impact on the advancement of socio-cultural inclusion. A wider attention to diversity might involve various social actors such as artists, educators, NGO/NPOs and local administrative agencies together with migrants and ethnic minority communities in ways to positively enhance the social perception of existing and growing ethnic diversity. This conference will critically and innovatively consider whether and how the business-driven promotion of diversity enhances socio-cultural inclusion through comparative examination of and mutual learning from East Asian cases (Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong/China) by attending to similar and different experiences and problems of the promotion of diversity in the region The conference also aims to facilitate productive intellectual exchanges among academics, administrators, educators, NGO/NPOs and young cultural performers/practitioners of migrant and ethnic communities over the possibilities and limitations of promoting ethnic diversity as a positive asset to enrich society. We expect that the participants will develop relational networks and collaboratively make policy recommendations including the design of a public pedagogical program to advance social praxis of promoting diversity in an inclusive manner across borders and sectors.

Vernacular Architecture Forum 2018 Annual Meeting, A Shared Heritage: Urban and Rural Experience on the Banks of the Potomac

Description :
CALL FOR PAPERS: Vernacular Architecture Forum 2018 Annual Meeting, A Shared Heritage: Urban and Rural Experience on the Banks of the Potomac, May 2-5, 2018, in Alexandria, Virginia.

DEADLINE – OCTOBER 30, 2017

The Vernacular Architecture Forum invites paper proposals for its 37th Annual Conference, A Shared Heritage: Urban and Rural Experience on the Banks of the Potomac, May 2-5, 2018, in Alexandria, Virginia. Papers may address vernacular and everyday buildings, sites, or cultural landscapes worldwide. Submissions on all relevant topics are welcome but we encourage papers exploring mid-Atlantic American themes exploring agriculture, maritime activities, industrialization, urbanization, suburbanization, as well as themes such ethnic identity, religious expression, and the creation of vacation and recreation landscapes. Additionally, the VAF is launching a multi-year program of inquiry into the distinctiveness of the VAF and the vernacular architecture movement. To this end, we encourage papers that consider this field over time. How does the wide range of VAF projects (tours, guidebooks, book and article awards, field schools, annual conference papers, publications, etc.) demonstrate how our questions, concerns, and methods have changed and evolved? Where do we see evidence of that history in our current work, and what might our future look like? Proposals might focus on a particular building type (i.e. houses, barns), a research strategy (fieldwork), political or theoretical convictions (Gender, Marxism, the Everyday, etc.), or particular approaches to presenting our work and engaging colleagues and the public.

Students and young professionals may apply for the Pamela H. Simpson Presenter’s Fellowships offering support of up to $500 to presenting papers at VAF’s annual conference.

SUBMITTING AN ABSTRACT

Papers should be analytical rather than descriptive, and no more than twenty minutes in length. Proposals for complete sessions, roundtable discussions or other innovative means that facilitate scholarly discourse are especially encouraged. At least one session will be devoted to Field Notes – shorter papers (five to eight minutes in length) that introduce new techniques, innovations, and discoveries in documenting vernacular buildings and landscapes. Proposals should clearly state the argument of the paper and explain the methodology and content in fewer than 400 words. Make sure to indicate if it is a regular paper proposal or a shorter fieldwork proposal or intended for the VAF distinctiveness session. Please include the paper title, author’s name, email address, a one-page c.v. You may include up to two images with your submission. Note that presenters must deliver their papers in person and be VAF members at the time of the conference. Speakers who do not register for the conference by March 1, 2018, will be withdrawn. Please do not submit an abstract if you are not committed to attending the papers session on Saturday, May 5, 2018.

THE DEADLINE FOR PROPOSALS IS OCTOBER 30, 2017

The abstracts and c.v. should be emailed as a PDF attachment to the VAF Papers Committee Chair, Daves Rossell, at papers@vafweb.org. For general information about the Potomac conference, please visit the conference website or contact Thomas Reinhart at VAFPotomac@vafweb.org.
