[6.14.16] Workshop Opportunity
CfP: Material, Spatial and Sensory Encounters with the Picturebook Object
International Workshop at Koç University, Istanbul, Turkey, June 9 - 10, 2017
From hornbooks to i-pads, children’s reading experiences have been mediated via transforming book systems in ways serving to educate, to entertain, and to facilitate narrative. Material and sensory aspects of picturebooks also have the capacity to act as a third narrative system, operating beside words and images.These aspects may engage and challenge the child to comprehend a subject through the experiential handling of the picturebook, resulting in an embodied meaning-making process. The exposure to these types of picturebooks may turn into a creative encounter, curated experience, an event or a performance. Physical interactions may be explored further in printed as well as digital picturebooks with the rise of multimodal literacies supported with novel technologies that can support diverse needs.
Through this workshop we seek to explore the educational, developmental, creative and intimate qualities of materials and structures in picturebooks. What is the importance of materiality in meaning construction for the child? How do spatial and sensory encounters influence a child’s understanding of a narrative, their recollection of the story? What does the future hold in relation to the physical and digital realms of children’s reading? How can this reading experience involve active participation through different materialities?
The purpose of this international workshop is to bring together scholars and experts of children’s
literature, children’s media, art and design, education, psychology and other cross-disciplinary fields from different countries who are particularly interested in picturebooks that explore material, spatial and sensory experiences. We therefore invite papers dealing with one or several of the following topics:
- picturebooks appealing to the senses (edible, audio, tactile, scented)
- accessories and inserted gadgets, altered vision in picturebooks
- transformative technology (surfaces, chemicals, and processes)
- materiality and metaphor
- materialities that support reading in special needs
- physical form and narrative correspondence (volvelles, panoramas, scrolls, accordion books etc.)
- unconventional handling of picturebooks
- physical space and narrative space, interactive reading
- picturebooks as an event, an installation, an architecture
- embodied reading of picturebooks

[03.01.16] AR (t) CHITECTURE
An International Conference at The Technion – Israel Institute of Technology
Faculty of Architecture and Town Planning
19-21 April 2016
More Information here: http://jebe-cities.com/archart
Good architecture brings forth a thick reality of experience. To create poetic local places (buildings, landscapes, and urban design projects), the architect has to embody the environment in which his architectural creation takes place. Meaningful architectural making always reflects and addresses the time, place, desires and needs of a shared context, but at the same time interprets, ponders, questions and manipulates it, while bringing forth the living subjectivity of the architect.
Artistic creation, in its different forms, allows the artist to embody the world poetically. Through drawing, painting, sculpture, film, music, dance, etc., the artist addresses collective cultural topics in a personal manner, questions, criticizes, and illuminates them, and thus actively participates in the shared reality.
It is not uncommon that architects immerse themselves in art making. Usually their artistic creation has been regarded as separated from their architectural work. The conference will investigate the intricate and fascinating ties between artistic and architectural making. It will aim to question, exemplify, and evaluate the connection between these two fields. Why do architects preoccupy themselves with art making? What are the relationships between their artistic works and their architectural design? Does their art making enrich their architectural designs?
Papers may articulate theoretical relationships between art making and architectural making, approach the relationship between these two fields as modes of thinking in recent decades. Papers may also attest to the relationship between art and architecture through case studies of specific architects, or shed light on the ties between specific works of art and architectural projects. Collaborative, multidisciplinary and historiographical papers are welcome.
We are inviting historians, theoreticians, researchers and scholars of various fields and backgrounds to submit a paper proposal for one of the below listed topics.
Please email a 500 words abstract, describing the paper proposal to the following email address: Aremail@example.com by March 7, 2016.
Accepted abstracts will be notified by March 14, 2016.
