News > Call for paper: Raw earth architecture and construction. Historical, sociological, and economic approaches

The fifth Cross-disciplinary exchange on raw earth constructions (Échanges transdisciplinaires sur les constructions en terre crue) will take place in Montpellier, France, in October 2019.

It follows four other meetings (2001, 2005, 2008, 2016) focusing on major earth building techniques (pisé, cob, mud bricks, wattle and daub), finishing processes, and the manufacture of objects and furniture.

The 5th edition will focus on two themes with broad scopes:
- Theme 1: the socioeconomics of earth habitats;
- Theme 2: evolution through history

Proposals for papers or posters must be submitted to the Scientific Committee by 15 January 2019.
