Title: Call for Mini-Papers on Contemporary and Historical Flood Resilient Construction Techniques and Materials
Country: United States
Summary: In April of 2016, the Newport Restoration Foundation (NRF) (Newport, Rhode Island, USA) organized the Keeping History Above Water Conference (KHAW), which attracted 350 attendees from historic communities whose built history and cultural landscapes are threatened by rising waters. This was not a conference about climate change, but about what preservationists/conservationists, engineers, city planners, legislators, insurers, historic home owners and other decision makers need to know about climate change (sea level rise in particular) and what can be done to protect historic buildings, landscapes and neighborhoods from the increasing threat of inundation. NRF is now in the process of creating an edited book on the threats of rising sea level/riverine flooding to historic buildings, places, and landscapes and how changes to and potential erasure of these resources can be mitigated. This foundational text will be based on selected papers from the presenters at the KHAW conference, invited papers, and open submissions. The book will be published by a reputable, scholarly press with a practitioner and academic audience in mind.

Title: Scott Opler Fellowship in Architectural History
City: Oxford
Country: United Kingdom
Summary: The person appointed will conduct high level academic research in Architectural History and prepare the results of that work of publication. Conference and seminar attendance may well form part of the programme of research. Topics may include any area or aspect of European architectural history during the Renaissance or Baroque era including urbanism, landscape and garden history, drawing and design method, theory and publication, architectural representation, as well as studies of architecture and related disciplines. Research Fellows do not have a direct reporting line, but the Provost oversees the work and the well-being of all members of College, and is always willing to provide advice on research progress. Members of the Scott Opler Committee can sometimes offer specialist advice and the College Librarian can advise on the extensive holdings in Architectural History of the Old Library. The Fellow is normally expected to work in Oxford, and to make use of the library resources of the University and the College, but visit to collections elsewhere may be necessary and are encouraged. The Opler Research Fellow will receive a stipend of £26,537 per annum (revised annually) and will have access to certain travel, research and publication funds. The Fellow is also entitled to accommodation to a value from £11,280 per annum and, when the kitchens are open, to free meals in the College as a member of the Senior Common Room.
