Call For Papers

Cities, Urbanism and Heritage

The fields of study of architecture, urbanism and heritage have produced in recent years new and vast analyses, extending their reach to new geographies and assuming other conformations mainly aided by post-colonial theory. It is indisputable that modern and modernist heritage conforms most cities of the Western world, and that in ancient colonised territories this presence was, and still is even more, significant, constituting authentic repositories of transnational collective memory. Recent studies have indeed shed new light on non-Western modern production, in African, Asian, East European or South American contexts, many of which associated with the cultural process of colonialism, rewriting parts of a history always necessarily incomplete. To the Western European and North American canonical concept of modernism, a plurality of conceptual neologisms and other modernisms were added, the result of several conjugations (of time, space, physical environment and socio-political conformation) which have allowed a balance between the mission civilisatrice of architecture and the sustainability of modern societies. Thus, we seek proposals that explore the links between heritage and coloniality.
Keywords: architecture and cities of colonial genesis in post-colonial context; modern urban and architectural heritage; cities of modern genesis.
