CFP: Cultural perceptions of safety (Utrecht, 21-22 Jan 21)

Utrecht, January 21 – 22, 2021
Deadline: Jun 1, 2020
On Thursday 21st and Friday 22nd of January 2021, the Humanities Department of the Open University of the Netherlands organizes the international conference ‘Cultural perceptions of safety. Reflecting on modern and pre-modern feelings of safety in literature, philosophy, art and history’. We cordially invite scholars from various disciplines to send in their proposal for paper presentations.


– Spatial dimensions of safety; How does the representation and expression of safety differ between cities and rural areas? How was and is the ideal safe space portrayed? How does the architecture or the city planning of spaces influence our feeling of safety?

– Emotional dimensions of safety; How has the emotion of safety been perceived and portrayed over time? How are feelings of safety influenced by processes of in- and exclusion of specific social groups? How are feelings of safety and unsafety imagined and linked? How do different literary genres discuss (un)safety in relation to emotions? and How do art works perform (un)safety and how is this linked to affectivity?

– Theoretical and ethical reflections on safety; What is safety? How has safety been defined? What is the role of safety in society? Which philosophical and religious roots have influenced our perceptions of safety?

– Eco-anxiety and safety; How is the feeling of safety affected by the existential challenge of climate change? How does the phenomenon of eco-anxiety prevail in cultural expressions of safety? Is this form of anxiety a typical current societal discourse of safety or does it have its own history?

– Politics of safety; What is the meaning and value of safety in politics? How have feelings of safety and unsafety been used in policy making? What are the differences in cultural perspectives on safety in western and non-western countries and on national, global and geo-political level?

CFP: Temporanea. Revista de Historia de la Arquitectura No. 2 (2021)

Temporánea. Revista de Historia de la Arquitectura is a journal of the editorial seal of the University of Seville EUS, preferably addressed to the academic community focused on international research in History of Architecture. It publishes annually scientific articles selected by the double-blind peer review system and through an editorial process characterized by quality, rigor and transparency, monitored by its editorial team committee with a marked international character.

Research in the History of Architecture is approached from any discipline, chronological period and geography, and promotes the diversity and complexity of History as an inalienable value. In addition to this transversal and plural approach, this publication advocates the multiscalar character of architecture, ranging from the history of the built object, the city and the territory. In its section atemporánea the journal publishes research articles from any historical period and from any part of the world, complemented by short texts of its section contemporánea, which includes books, exhibitions and activities reviews.TEMPORÁNEA aims to place historical research on architecture in a broader intellectual horizon and to generate a contemporary forum of disciplinary relevance.

Following the publication in March 2020 of our inaugural issue, we strongly invite researchers in the History of Architecture to submit articles for the next issue of the journal. TEMPORÁNEA will continue to show the History of Architecture in all its transdisciplinary, chronological, geographical and multiscale complexity.


Deadline: July 10, 2020
