  • Lesser Known Architecture: A Celebration of Underappreciated London Buildings

    London | Dates: 04 Jun – 22 Jul, 2013
    Lesser Known Architecture, an exhibition celebrating extraordinary London architecture, will be on view at the Design Museum from June 4 to July 22, 2013. The free exhibition features ten buildings, structures and subways, nominated by leading architecture critics, that contribute to the mix and diversity of the city but are all too often overlooked and forgotten. Curated by Elias Redstone, Lesser Known Architecture presents an alternative architectural map of the city. Each site has been photographed by Theo Simpson and will be displayed as a series of single colour offset prints in the Design Museum Cafe and Tank. The installation is designed by Ben Mclaughlin.
  • Call for Presenters: SAH Graduate Student Lightning Talks, Austin 2014

    Austin | Dates: 04 Jun – 01 Aug, 2013

    Society of Architectural Historians, 67th Annual Conference, Austin
    April 9-13, 2014

    As it has since 2010, this year's Society of Architectural Historians Annual Conference is proud to feature the Graduate Student Lighting Talks. This full session is composed of 5-minute graduate student presentations that provide graduate students the opportunity to present their current research. Participants may choose to present their work in the form of a focused summation, a concentrated case study, or a methodological exegesis. This year, 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 along with their CV. The title of the talk must be 65 characters or less, including spaces. Preference will be given to advanced PhD students, but all graduate students are encouraged to apply. Please note that applications cannot be accepted from graduate students who are participating in another session, and Lightning Talks speakers will not be eligible for SAH Annual Meeting Fellowships. In addition, to allow respondents time to prepare, this year we will ask participants to submit a brief text of their presentation in early 2014.

    You may contact Michael McCulloch at mccullmp@umich.edu with any questions. Please submit proposals to sahlightningtalks@gmail.com by August 1, 2013.
