The Society of Architectural Historians will host its 70th Annual International Conference in Glasgow, Scotland, from June 7–11, 2017. Meeting in Glasgow reflects the increasingly international focus of the Society and its conference, and we hope SAH members from all over the world will join us in Scotland's largest city, world renowned for its outstanding architectural heritage. This is the first time that SAH has met outside North America since 1973, when it planned a joint meeting in Cambridge with the Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain. The Glasgow conference will include 36 sessions and draw architectural historians, art historians, architects, museum professionals and preservationists from around the world together to present new research on the history of the built environment.
