Think of this page as an itinerary for my ‘dream ticket’ to conferences held all around the world that I believe are relevant to this project. Since the project is so young, I’ve missed almost all of them so far, but look forward to finding the time and money to attend some of the others in the coming months.

20-22 November 2006: University of Sheffield School of Architecture Theory Forum “Architecture and Indeterminacy”, Sheffield, UK (the only one on this list that I actually managed to attend, what with it being in my own university and department)

3 – 4 March 2007: The Fifth Annual University of Florida Conference on Comics “World Building: Seriality and History”, Gainesville, FL, USA.

13-14 April 2007: International Bande Dessinée Society 2007 Conference, The French Institute, London, UK

7-9 June 2007: Comic und Stadt “Urban Space in Print, Picture and Sequence”, Berlin, Germany.

21 September 2007: Architectural Humanities Research Association Annual Student Research Symposium, University of East London, UK

    "no words no action" was an experiment in academic blogging. The blog recorded the progress of reading, research and investigations that lead to a Masters in Architecture dissertation at the University of Sheffield in autumn 2007. You can find out more about the author's interest in blogging here.

    To find out more about the thesis, download the original dissertation proposal (pdf format) from February 2007 or the semi-formal first chapter (pdf format) from April 2007.

    Further research projects are in the works, and their dependence on human interaction and networking suggests more blogging will be inevitable when the time comes.


    At the time that this blog was created, James Benedict Brown was a fifth year Masters of Architecture student at the University of Sheffield. James' personal blog is here.

    James graduated in 2008 and now lives and works in Glasgow.


    This project was supervised by Renata Tyszczuk at the University of Sheffield

    I've managed to miss almost half a dozen compelling conferences around the world so far this year, simply because I have no (more) money to travel and no time to escape my studies in Strasbourg and Sheffield. However, if I had a magic plane ticket and plenty of time, here's my selection of essential conferences to attend. Hopefully I'll be there for more of them next year... click here for the diary (updated every time I miss another one).
