The School of Planning, Architecture & Civil Engineering (SPACE) at Queen’s University Belfast (QUB), Northern Ireland recently announced the event, Peripheries 2011 – the ninth International Conference of the Architectural Humanities Research Association (AHRA) which occurs on the 27th to 29th of October. More information on the event after the break. Peripheries are increasingly considered in contemporary culture, research and practice. This shift in focus challenges the idea that the centre primarily influences the periphery, giving way to an understanding of reciprocal influences. These principles have permeated into a wide range of areas of study and practice, transforming the way we approach research and spatio-temporal relations. Confirmed Keynote Speakers: M.
