From SAH:

Society of Architectural Historians Annual Conference
Glasgow, 7–11 June 2017

Session Proposals due by 16 January 2016

At its 2017 Annual International Conference in Glasgow, Scotland, SAH will offer a total of 36 paper sessions. The Society invites its members, including graduate students and independent scholars, representatives of SAH chapters, and partner organizations, to chair a session at the conference. As SAH membership is required to chair or present research at the conference, non-members who wish to chair a session will be required to join SAH at the time of submitting a proposal.

Since the principal purpose of the SAH Annual International Conference is to inform conference attendees of the general state of research in architectural history and related disciplines, session proposals covering every period in the history of architecture and all aspects of the built environment, including landscape and urban history, are encouraged.

Session proposals are to be submitted online beginning October 1, 2015, through 5:00 pm CST, January 16, 2016. The portal will close automatically at this time. Proposals will be reviewed by Sandy Isenstadt, SAH 1st vice president-elect and conference chair.

Prospective chairs must include the following in their proposal:
1. A session title not longer than 65 characters, including spaces and punctuation
2. Summary of the subject and the premise in no more than 500 words
3. Name, professional affiliation (if applicable), address, telephone and email address
4. A current CV (2 pages maximum)
