SAH 2023 Annual International Conference



The SAH 76th Annual International Conference will be comprised of an in-person meeting in Montréal, Canada, April 12–16, 2023, followed by virtual sessions, September 20–22, 2023. The expanded conference program is designed to offer additional opportunities for members to present their work and greater accessibility for those who may be unable to attend the conference in person.

The virtual program will be announced soon!

Montréal 2023 | April 12–16 

Montréal 2023 offered an immersive, in-person experience, with paper sessions at Hôtel Bonaventure Montréal, events at venues throughout Montréal, and guided architecture tours in and around the city. Attendees connected with colleagues at social receptions, met publishers in the exhibit area, and conversed between sessions, all valued moments at the face-to-face conference.


Virtual 2023 | September 20–22 

Virtual 2023 sessions offer flexibility and convenience, create additional opportunities for scholarly exchange, and enable wider participation in the conference, especially for those with financial limitations, family commitments, health concerns, or travel restrictions. Speakers will present their research live in sessions that will be recorded in their entirety. Attendees will have 30 days of access to session recordings.
