Welcome to the SAH Conference
Conference General Chair: Ken Breisch, SAH First Vice President, Assistant Professor, School of Architecture, University of Southern California
The Society of Architectural Historians will hold its 67th Annual Conference in Austin, Texas, a rapidly growing city with a diverse architectural and cultural heritage. The conference will feature 35 paper sessions, the Graduate Student Lightning Talk and tours of Austin's architecture and landscapes.
The conference offers the opportunity to present new research, exchange ideas and network with people and organizations from across the globe, including architectural historians, art historians, architects, preservationists, landscape architects, urban planners, nonprofits and civic leaders.
SAH Annual Conference attendance has increased by 20% in five years (520 attendees in 2009 vs. 649 attendees in 2013). In response to this growth, SAH is excited to introduce a new conference format and expanded programming in 2014 that will appeal to our members and like-minded local residents as well.
The 2014 conference will officially begin Wednesday evening with the Opening Reception, SAH Annual Business Meeting and the Introductory Talk.
Paper Sessions will be held on Thursday and Friday with three tracks each day.
Exhibits will be open Thursday, Friday and Saturday, giving exhibitors increased exposure to conference attendees as well as interested members of the local community.
On Saturday, we invite organizations and individuals from the local community interested in architecture, landscape, art, design, urban planning and preservation to participate. Events will include the SAH Austin Seminar, "Austin and the Place of Historic Architecture in Rapidly Growing Cities," the Keynote Address and various architectural tours.
