“Middle Ground / Middle East: Religious Sites in Urban Context”
This symposium — co-sponsored by the Yale School of Architecture, the Yale Divinity School, the Yale Council on Middle East Studies and the Yale Institute of Sacred Music — will focus on the role of religious sites representing the three Abrahamic traditions in shaping the urban environments in the Middle East. Recognizing that sacred building – mosques, churches, synagogues, and other holy sites—has often been regarded as representative of patterns of social and cultural division, the symposium seeks to address the commonality of religious traditions, inter-faith relationships, and long practices of learning and tolerance. Leading architects and scholars from a variety of fields and religious backgrounds will examine through a plurality of perspectives the recent paradigm shifts regarding the relationship between architecture and religion and the ways in which religious sites currently engage urban regeneration, economic growth, cultural identity, memory and the limits of multiculturalism. (The symposium will be described in greater detail in a separate news release.)

“Fugitive Geographies”
This symposium, organized by the school’s second-year M.E.D. students, will investigate the built environment from the unique perspective of the criminal fugitive, a figure who lives in a continuous present confronting a mercurial landscape that offers concealment one moment and prevents escape the next. Drawing on ideas from the fields of architecture, art history, sociology, criminology, forensics, cartography, media studies, political science, psychology and history, advanced doctoral students from multiple universities will seek to understand the shifting orientation of the fugitive navigating through an environment where boundaries and borders are unclear. (The symposium will be described in greater detail in a separate news release.)
