Superstition first attempted to satisfy this curiosity, by referring all those wonderful appearances to the immediate a gency of the gods. xxxc kyl is the way with old people! So it is with us also!"-- --Thus spake to each other the two old night-watchmen and light-scarers, and tooted thereupon sorrowfully on their horns: so did it happen yester- night at the garden-wall., .
They laugh also at chastity, and ask: xxxc kyl is chastity. Is chastity not folly. But the folly came unto us, and not we unto it., .

I agree. It is also logical (and easier) to just concentrate on what you are really good at. You may not be that good for your passion.

The International Seminar on Vernacular Settlements (ISVS) is pleased to announce the ISVS-6; the sixth ISVS Conference in Famagusta, hosted by the Eastern Mediterranean University, North Cyprus between the dates 19-21 April, 2012.
ISVS aims to promote awareness and research on vernacular traditions by organizing seminars focused on important aspects of vernacular every two years in specifically chosen places across the globe. The last seminar, ISVS-5 held in Colombo, Sri Lanka focused on Vernacular Futures provided a great opportunity to explore the future of the vernacular traditions resulting in a suggestion that the survival and continuity of vernacular traditions may lie in ordinary informal buildings which are usually not regarded as vernacular. Building upon this insight, ISVS-6 in 2012 is delighted to lead the debate on vernacular traditions of contemporary societies and their building and settlement forms which display the same characteristics of the conventionally conceptualized lsquo;vernacular rsquo;. This does not mean that the lsquo;historical vernacular rsquo; is out of the conference scope. Instead juxtaposition of lsquo;historical vernacular rsquo; and the lsquo;contemporary vernacular rsquo; is expected to be explored in such a way that the nuances of their makings, and relevance in today rsquo;s world could be understood thoroughly.
Under this scope, ISVS-6 is delightfully announced on the theme lsquo;Contemporary Vernaculars: Places, Processes and Manifestations rsquo; to incite and welcome interdisciplinary scholars and practitioners from around the world working in the disciplines of architecture, art amp; architectural history, urban studies, city amp; regional planning, cultural studies, anthropology, sociology and environmental studies for proposing papers and meeting inNorth Cyprus in April 2012.
ISVS-6 also expects to attract young researchers involved in postgraduate studies on contemporary vernaculars and offers a scientific platform to present and discuss their hypothesis and arguments, understandings and approaches, and methods and models with the scholars participating in the seminar.
