44th Annual Conference of the Society for the Study of Architecture in Canada

  • Dates: 31 Dec, 2017 – 24 Feb, 2018
  • Location: Canada
The Society for the Study of Architecture in Canada invites paper proposals from researchers, professionals, and students for its 44th annual conference, Hard and Soft Histories, which will be held in St. John’s, Newfoundland from May 22-25, 2018.

This year’s conference will be held at the base of Signal Hill, a National Historic Site overlooking the entrance to St. John’s Harbour. St. John’s is one of the oldest European settlements in North America. Since the 16th century, the city has served as the capital of England’s first overseas colony, the independent Dominion of Newfoundland, and now Canada’s tenth province. As always, our conference will feature paper presentations, tours, and a concluding banquet.

Paper proposals will be assessed by a scientific committee including session chairs and members of the Society. Articles building on the papers presented can also be submitted for publication in the Journal of the Society for the Study of Architecture in Canada. Depending on available funds, financial support for the travel expenses of students may be provided following the conference. We are also excited to announce that this year we have partnered with Memorial University in order to offer affordable, on-campus accommodations.

Visit to download the complete Call for Papers, including a list of proposed sessions and instructions on submitting an abstract. Submissions are due February 24, 2018.
