Architectural Humanities is one of five research groups established by the School of Architecture and Cities in 2021. It focuses on the historical and cultural processes and practices of architecture. Founded on humanities-based methods and including interdisciplinary arts and social science approaches to research, our members address critical questions about architecture and its contexts. These include: archival and documentary analysis, theoretical debates, oral histories, visual studies, drawing, participatory research, installations and exhibitions.

The one-day symposium, organised by Davide Deriu and Kate Jordan (group convenors), will showcase research in progress by members of the group. It will feature a keynote lecture by Professor Christine Wall (Leverhulme Emeritus Fellow); a roundtable discussion, chaired by Dr Elizabeth Darling (Chair of the Society of Architectural Historians Great Britain); and additional contributions by external speakers. The event is open to all.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
