Call for SAH 2021 Virtual Programs

by SAH News | Aug 20, 2020

Request for Post-Montréal Annual International Conference Virtual Programs

The Society of Architectural Historians is accepting proposals for virtual programs such as roundtables, meetings, informational programs, debates, and book discussions. These programs will be presented virtually after the SAH 74th Annual International Conference in Montréal on dates/times between May 3–28, 2021. These programs will complement the regular conference programming and should differ from the paper sessions in both topic and organization. Submissions that address the current conditions of research, teaching, and scholarship are encouraged.

Drawing on the success of our virtual roundtables in May 2020, SAH plans to offer roundtables, meetings, and informational programs in virtual format to promote accessibility and broaden the potential audience.

If you would like to hold a virtual program, you must apply to be considered. This includes those organizing programs that have been traditionally held at the conference.

The deadline to submit a proposal is September 14, 2020. All proposals will be reviewed by the Conference Chair, with confirmations sent out after October 1, 2020. If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Christopher Kirbabas by email at


Please note the following:

  • Completing the form is a request and does not guarantee availability for every applicant. All proposals will be reviewed and selected by the Conference Chair.
  • If selected for a virtual program, SAH will work with you to select the best date/time post-conference from May 3–28, 2021.
