Deadline August 1, 2014
As it has since 2010, the Society of Architectural Historians is proud to feature the Graduate Student Lightning Talks as part of the 2015 Annual Conference. This full session is composed of five-minute talks that allow graduate students to present their current research. Participants may present their work in the form of a focused summation, a concentrated case study, or a methodological exegesis. In 2015, the Lightning Talks format, in which presentations are divided into thematic groups with question and discussion following each, will be augmented with established scholars acting as respondents.
Graduate students are invited to submit a short abstract (150 word max.) headed with the applicant's name, institutional affiliation, and title of talk (must be 65 characters or less, including spaces), along with their CV (2 pages max). Preference will be given to advanced PhD students, but all graduate students are encouraged to apply. Applications cannot be accepted from graduate students who are submitting an abstract for the conference sessions. Only one submission per conference is allowed. Lightning Talks speakers are not eligible for SAH Annual Conference Fellowships. To allow respondents time to prepare, participants will be required to submit a brief text of their presentation in early 2015. Membership in SAH is not required to submit an abstract; however, if your abstract is accepted you will need to register and become a member, beginning in early January, 2015.
