4T 2016 ETHICS OF [RE] PRODUCTION
“Our era prefers the images to the things, the copy to the original the representation to the reality, appearance to being.” (Feuerbach, The Essence of Christianity, 1857)
Feuerbach’s pronouncements marks the symptomatic loss at the heart of modern experience: loss of tradition, loss of the Creator, loss of a connection one formed with what one produced, and loss of a solid ground. These losses were mediated through the hopeful belief on human rationality, science and progress.

Attention Architectural Historians!
The theme of the fourth annual UBTAS symposium in Bosnia-Herzegovina will be urban development in the Balkans during the Ottoman rule. We hope that presenters will unearth both Ottoman-built settlements and shed light on the little-known aspects of urban development along with social, cultural and economic life in the Balkan cities during the Ottoman rule. Historians will largely use one of the major sources of Ottoman urban development, the Land Registry records. Ottoman Land Registry records will help to locate many settlements and architectural structures that have disappeared.
