The annual art history conference NORDIK has chosen the topic “mapping unchartered territories” for its 2015 conference in Iceland. The Printed & Built project runs a double session in NORDIK 2015, studying the mediation of modern architecture in genres as different as English legal documents, German slide shows, and French art magazines. The session is led by Mari Hvattum, Mari Lending (AHO), and Wallis Miller (University of Kentucky), and the speakers are:
Timothy Hyde (MIT): ‘Fair Manly Candid Criticism’: Architecture and Libel in 19th Century Britain
Mathilde Simonsen Dahl and Léa-Catherine Szacka (AHO): Ephemeral Architecture and its Destruction in the late 19th Century Press
