“The Politics of Tradition” is the theme of the sixteenth conference of the International Association for the Study of Traditional Environments (IASTE) to be held in Coimbra, Portugal from October 4-7, 2018. This conference will offer reflections both on the importance of the concept of tradition for the political question in itself and on the ways in which variants of governance structures face the question of tradition in the built environment. Participants are encouraged to question the practice of tradition in the production of space in relation to different regimes of politics. In addition, the conference will examine the systems of politics as a category of tradition, reflecting on how the construction and deconstruction of professional political bodies act on the built environment around three tracks: 

Track I – Traditions of Everyday Social Practices and the Shaping of Architecture and Urbanism
Track II – Theorizing the Political from the Spaces of Traditional Environments
Track III – The Political in Tradition and Place: An Open Track 

Scholars from relevant disciplines are invited to submit a 500-word abstract and short biography by November 6, 2017. Submission details and the full Call for Abstracts are available online at:
