Call for Papers | SAHGB Architectural History Workshop, 2018

Posted in Calls for Papers by Editor on February 2, 2018

Call for Participation from SAHGB:

The Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain
Workshop for Doctoral Students and Early Career Scholars
The Gallery, London, 17 March 2018

Proposals due by 16 February 2018

The Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain (SAHGB) invites proposals for the 2018 Architectural History Workshop. This is our annual event for postgraduate students and early career scholars to share and develop their ideas; it aims to provide an informal space away from your own institution where you can discuss, debate, practice and enjoy the company of like-minded researchers working within the history of the built environment, broadly conceived.
We invite participation in a number of ‘lightning’ rounds, where contributors are asked to speak for no more than ten minutes in any appropriate format that engagingly explores and presents your research. This research can be at any stage from a research proposal that you wish to talk about, issues arising from your research, final work as you write-up, post-doctoral reflections, or anything in-between. Speakers from previous events are particularly welcome to update us on the progress of their work.

The event is limited to postgraduate students (full-time or part-time) and early career scholars (those who have completed their PhDs within the last 5 years). We particularly encourage participation from:
• Masters students considering doctoral study
• Doctoral students in relevant disciplines

We are interested in all periods and regions of study, and the full range of methodological approaches to architectural history. The society welcomes submissions of work relating to the history of the built environment from all disciplines, including but by no means limited to:
• Architecture
• Art History
• History (including urban, social and cultural history)
• Archaeology
• Anthropology
• Geography
On as diverse a range of themes as possible, including:
• Histories of design
• Histories of planning
• Histories of construction
• Histories of buildings in use
• Histories of interiors and interior design
• Histories of practice and professionalism

Alongside presentations, the workshop will feature a session on ‘Careers in Architectural History’ presented by a panel of invited speakers from museums, heritage bodies, architectural practices, and more. Speakers will be announced in the near future. The keynote speaker will be the Chairman of the SAHGB, Professor Anthony Geraghty (University of York).

If you are interested in making a contribution, please complete the submission form on our website. The closing date for applications is Friday, 16 February 2018. The result of all applications will be communicated by Tuesday, 20 February, with confirmation from the speakers requested by Thursday, 22 February. The workshop will take place on Saturday, 17 March at The Gallery, 70, Cowcross Street, London, EC1M 6EL. No funding is available. A contribution of £10 is requested from all attendees to cover costs (inclusive of all catering). Details of the 2017 workshop can be viewed on the Society’s website. For further information or clarification of any sort please contact the conference organizers at ahw2018@sahgb.org.uk.
