MoMoWo Symposium 2018
International Conference | Women’s Creativity since the Modern Movement (1918-2018):
Toward a New Perception and Reception
From Wednesday 13th to Saturday 16th June 2018
Politecnico di Torino - Lingotto Campus
Via Nizza 230, Torino, Italy
After almost four years of successful project activities, and in accordance with the MoMoWo mission, the International Conference | Women’s Creativity since the Modern Movement (1918-2018): Toward a New Perception and Reception continues to increase the visibility of creative women, to foster in Europe and beyond interdisciplinary and multicultural approaches to the study of the built environment "from the spoon to the city", and to facilitate the exchange of research results and professional practices in the fields of architecture, civil engineering and design.
Though the scope of the project is European, the scholarly and professionals communities are invited to submit papers related not only to Europe’s geographical framework but also its transcontinental aspects.
The main purpose of the MoMoWo Symposium is to map the general state of research about tangible and intangible cultural heritage created by women in 100 years, in order to give a new impetus to broaden studies in Europe and beyond.
MoMoWo’s Scientific Committee defined seven main topics in order to achieve a thematic balance able to provide an extensive oversight of the academic researches and professional experiences.
A. Women’s education and training. National and international mappings
B. Women’s legacy and heritage. Protection, restoration and enhancement
C. Women in communication and professional networks
D. Women and cultural tourism
E. Women’s achievements and professional attainments. Moving boundaries
F. Women and sustainability
Specialist Session F. City and Landscape
G. Women ”as subjects”. Documentation, methodology, interpretation and enhancement
Specialist Session G. Design drawings
