MoMoWo INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE 2018
Women’s Creativity since the Modern Movement (1918-2018): Toward a New Perception and Reception

After almost four years of successful project activities, and in accordance with the MoMoWo mission, the International Conference | Women’s Creativity since the Modern Movement (1918-2018): Toward a New Perception and Reception continues to increase the visibility of creative women, to foster in Europe and beyond interdisciplinary and multicultural approaches to the study of the built environment "from the spoon to the city", and to facilitate the exchange of research results and professional practices in the fields of architecture, civil engineering and design. 
The main purpose of the MoMoWo Symposium is to map the general state of research about tangible and intangible cultural heritage created by women in 100 years, in order to give a new impetus to broaden studies in Europe and beyond.
MoMoWo’s Scientific Committee defined seven main topics in order to achieve a thematic balance able to provide an extensive oversight of the academic researches and professional experiences

TOPICS
MoMoWo welcomes papers extending from 1918 to the present time, and touching a variety of disciplines and approaches concerning the perception and reception of women’s creativity, including history of professions, history and theory of architecture and design, historiography, landscape and urban planning, protection and conservation of architecture and interior design.

We call scholars and professionals – men and women – to broaden MoMoWo knowledge and critical discussion through various historical and political contexts in a comparative perspective on:
