IASTE 2000 Conference Description

The End of Tradition?

Conference Description

As we approach the next millennium, there is a great deal of contentious debate regarding the “end of history”, the “end of geography”, and the “end of tradition”. The emergence of the term “post”, as in post-developmentalism, post-modernism and now post-traditionalism, serves as an indicator of our present day discourse.  In past conferences, IASTE scholars and practitioners have attempted to make sense of this ever-changing intellectual landscape and have grappled with how processes of globalization are irrevocably restructuring space and place. This conference will be concerned with a specific historical moment, one where a seemingly all-consuming late capitalism levels differences and particularities, but where there is at the same time a resurgence of localisms, populisms, and fundamentalisms. It is this paradoxical simultaneity which necessitates our question: The End of Tradition?

IASTE has always been an unconventional intellectual space, drawing upon the strengths of interdisciplinary and cross-cultural investigations.   Perhaps it is now time to extend this unconventionality to our analytical strategies. We thus propose an interrogation of the traditions of “place”, for the “End of Tradition” should also be interpreted as a dislocation of intellectual traditions as well.

Pre-registration Information

Interested scholars who wish to pre-register for the conference should send a request with name, affiliation, and mailing address. Payment should be in US dollars in the form of check, money order, or international bank draft in the amount of $375.00 made payable to University of California Regents.  All conference presenters must pre-register in order to be included in the final program. Pre-registration fees do not cover the expenses of travel and accomodations. For more information, contact:

IASTE 2002 Conference Description

(U N) B O U N D I N G  T R A D I T I O N :

The Tensions of Borders and Regions

Eighth Conference of the International Association for the Study of Traditional Environments


The theme of the Eighth IASTE Conference is [Un]Bounding Tradition: The Tensions of Borders and Regions. The goal of this conference is to push the boundaries of the study of traditions, which has for the most part been grounded in neatly bounded regions defined by the academy, by regional genres of research or by the boundaries of separate disciplines.

The current moment of globalization, however, necessitates and provokes a remapping of such intellectual cartographies. The study of tradition, which has till recently been bounded by preordained geographical regions and accompanied by a belief in the inherent stasis of the “traditional” condition, has been challenged by the contemporary processes of migration, diasporas and hybrid cultures. At the same time, there is a growing recognition that despite porous borders and shape-shifting regions, despite e-freedom and e-trade, social and spatial fixities continue to intensify.

In a world bearing the premise of global citizenship, the legacy of political borders — and thus of identities — is creating unprecedented tensions between groups of people, which is manifested in practices of exclusion, segregation and conflict. But the border has always had a dual role, which, while defining the “other,” has simultaneously validated the self. It is not surprising that the very borders which once served to exclude and differentiate have now reemerged as celebrated icons of cultural overlap and political mediation.

IASTE’s Eighth Conference in Hong Kong, brings together over 130 scholars from a variety of disciplines to address these issues by presenting papers structured around three broad themes: Reconfiguring Regions, The Space of Borders and The Tensions of Ethnicity and Hybridity.

We would like to thank our principal sponsors in Hong Kong, the Lord Wilson Heritage Trust, the Department of Architecture at the University of Hong Kong, and the College of Environmental Design at the University of California, Berkeley.

We hope that you will all find this year’s conference in Hong Kong a rewarding experience.

Ninth Conference of the International Association for the Study of Traditional Environments


The theme of the Ninth IASTE Conference is Post Traditional Environments in a Post Global World. The conference will explore the notion of post traditional environments as spaces that unsettle the historically developed or assumed relationship between place and meaning.  These changes cannot be understood outside the post global moment, which supercedes the development era of multiculturalism and multilateralism, and replaces it with the concept of a unilateral dominant culture, which shatters the information-happy notion of a singular global village.  Here the past of post traditional places is not only invented but also intentionally ignored in favor of an immediate present that is assumed to be the past.  Additionally, the post global era, rather than indicating an end to globalization, refers to the emergence of a different kind of global engagement that is sharply at odds with the visions of liberal, multicultural globalization.  This IASTE conference is about the intersection of this post traditional condition with this post global moment in which global aspirations appear increasingly disassociated from place or nation, and the recognition that the currency of tradition will continue to circulate through global networks and capital.

IASTE’s Ninth Conference in the United Arab Emirates brings together over 130 scholars from a variety of disciplines to address these issues by presenting papers structured around three broad themes: Post Traditional Environments, The Post Global Condition, and Questioning and/or Redefining Authenticity

We would like to thank our principal sponsors in the United Arab Emirates, the Sultan of Sharjah, the American University of Sharjah, and the College of Environmental Design at the University of California, Berkeley.

We hope that you will all find this year’s conference in the United Arab Emirates a rewarding experience.

Conference Site
As the conference hotel is located in Dubai and the conference venue is at the American University of Sharjah, shuttle buses will be used to transport conference participants to the conference venue from the hotel. Buses will depart from the Hotel InterContinental Dubai (on Bin Yas Street) each morning at 8:00am to transport participants to the conference site, and will return participants to the hotel at the end of each day’s activities.
Please bring all items you will need with you each morning as buses will not return to the hotel until the evening.

Participants who are not staying at the InterContinental Dubai will be responsible for their own transportation to the conference hotel in time to catch the shuttle buses at 8:00am each morning. In the event of a missed shuttle, participants should take taxis at their own expense to the American University of Sharjah Architecture Building, which is 30 to 40 minutes from Dubai.

Climate and Clothing
As this is a desert climate, temperatures can be quite warm during the day but cool at night. As some evening conference activities last as late as 10:00pm, we suggest that participants bring jackets with them in the morning. It is customary for women to cover their shoulders in this culture, so a shawl or wrap may also be a useful item to bring.

Also, on the first night of conference, Dec. 14th, the opening Mejlis will involve having all conference participants sit on the ground during dinner.  Please dress accordingly.
