The study of the organisation of Mediterranean homes is significant within different disciplinary spheres, from geography to ethnology and anthropology, from archaeology to history and art history, from sociology to architecture. A variety of approaches has therefore benefitted this study, and often a set of dichotomies have framed it (continuity/discontinuity; contamination/isolation; territory/culture; diachrony/diatopia). The aim of the present conference is to contribute to this interdisciplinary debate by focusing particularly on the Western Mediterranean regions and by integrating recently developed research on built heritage in various regional subdivisions. We will focus on the characterisation of vernacular architecture (organisation of domestic space, integration within the rural and urban landscape, transformation throughout history) as well as discussions on proposed models, bearing in mind integrated conservation. We encourage contributions from all research specialists, inviting you to give papers and submit written articles on these topics.
