Miami University Call for Papers


This symposium will focus on dwelling; descriptions such as to lead astray, hinder, stun, make giddy, perplex, delay, linger, or to make a home, are included in the etymology of the word dwelling.1 Dwelling  also describes a manner of being, existing, or remaining for a time.2

How can architectural research advance our understanding of dwelling? What qualities in the society inform or are able to shift one's attitude or perceptions of dwelling? How does design impact the character of space in which we dwell?


We invite graduate students to submit a 250-word abstract (including the author's name and state whether he or she is a student, has professional affiliation or is an independent scholar), with up to four supporting keywords, and a poster for visual aid for review to:
