Poetics of Place Call for abstracts, Writingplace #10

The next edition of the Writingplace series, Poetics of Place, seeks to investigate how the connections between architecture and poetry can offer insights into the production of spatial understanding and the design of place. We are particularly interested in methodological considerations that inform spatial designers about the poetics of places, and in forms of architectural practice that make use of poetic devices - beyond the romantic image. We are looking for new ways to take account of poiesis as it evolves between poetic language and the constitutive elements of situatedness and place.

					View No. 8-9 (2023): Writing Urban Places: New Narratives for the European City

The special issue Writing Urban Places: New Narratives for the European City, marks the culmination of an international research network that delved into the intricate interplay between communities, urban spaces and narratives. At its core, this endeavour introduced an inventive approach aimed at deepening our comprehension of urban communities, their dynamics and their rootedness, all through the lens of narrative methodologies. This collection gives an account of the dynamics of this network of academics, which consists of over 175 individuals from 35 different European countries and a variety of disciplinary backgrounds. As such, the issue offers a conclusion to the Writing Urban Places COST Action while also, hopefully, providing a springboard for further reflections and discussions on urban narratives, and the role these could play in spatial developments in the European city.
