International conference

Lazarettos and Bazanas in Dalmatia in a Cross-Cultural Context

Darka Bilić, PhD, will participate in the 71st Annual International Conference organized by the Society of Architectural Historians (SAH) in Saint Paul, Minnesota from April 18 to April 22, 2018, presenting a paper entitled „Lazarettos and Bazanas in Dalmatia in a Cross-Cultural Context“.

“This paper analyses the formal characteristics of these building types in early modern Dalmatia, accentuating how neither territorial boundaries nor cultural conventions could impede the circulation of architectonic models. It is argued that the vicinity of these structures to borderlands rather facilitated exchange via newly established trade routes. The paper will consider further how this circulation of architectonic models occurred, adapting to new trading conditions, as well as the movement of people and goods.”
