SAH Receives Graham Foundation Grant for Glasgow Seminar

by SAH News | Aug 09, 2016
The Society of Architectural Historians has been awarded a 2016 organizational grant from the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts to help support the SAH Glasgow Seminar, “Making and Re-Making Glasgow: Heritage and Sustainability.” The seminar is part of the public programming of the SAH 2017 Annual International Conference in Glasgow, Scotland.

The SAH Glasgow Seminar continues SAH's commitment to deepening engagement between international scholars and local audiences around issues of the built environment. SAH will offer a unique opportunity for conference scholars and local residents to engage with local experts in discussions about how Glasgow, and by extension, other post-industrial cities, balance heritage and sustainable growth.  In a unique format, speakers from some of Glasgow's leading organizations in housing, urban planning and design, heritage, and waterways, will respond to photographic images submitted by citizens and scholars to create a focus around Glasgow's rich traditions in housing and open spaces, as well as ways to regenerate Glasgow's River Clyde.
