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. There is a single call for sessions for Montréal and Virtual. Proposals must be submitted by January 31, 2022, at 5:00 pm CST.

Montréal 2023 | April 12–16 

Montréal 2023 will offer an immersive, in-person experience, with paper sessions at Hotel Bonaventure, events at venues throughout Montréal, and guided architecture tours in and around the city. Attendees can look forward to connecting with colleagues at social receptions, meeting publishers in the exhibit area, and conversing between sessions, all valued moments at the face-to-face conference.


Virtual 2023 | September 20–22 

Virtual 2023 speakers will present their research live in online sessions that will be recorded in their entirety. For 30 days following the conference, registrants will have access to videos of sessions they might have missed or would like to revisit. The virtual sessions offer flexibility and convenience, create additional opportunities for scholarly exchange among SAH members, and enable wider participation in the conference, especially for people who may be unable to visit Montréal due to financial limitations, family commitments, health concerns, or travel restrictions.
