The first side event of the EAHN Word & Image interest group presents an opportunity to highlight the relevance of word-image studies to architectural history. By looking at the work that some members of the group have already been doing in terms of disseminating and furthering the subject within our discipline (and beyond?), we will aim at producing a draft plan of what the group should focus on during the next two years.

Should we plan a conference? A publication? An online database of primary material? Or of scholars working in the field? Should we explore and strengthen interdisciplinary links to fields such as literature or the visual arts? What support do we need from the EAHN to achieve these goals? And, in turn, what can we contribute to the Network?

The possibilities are endless and we are looking for input from group members and anyone interested. All welcome.

Programme – provisional:

Anne Hultzsch, The Oslo School of Architecture and Design, Norway: Building Word Image: An Interest Group & Architectural Histories Special Collection

Mari Hvattum, The Oslo School of Architecture and Design, Norway: The Printed & the Built: Research Groups & Networks, an international perspective
