SAH Colloquium 2019
Vectors of Change: Emerging Challenges in the Study of the Built Environment
Friday, April 26
3:00 - 5:10 p.m.
Submission Deadline: March 1, 2019
Convener: Claire Zimmerman, University of Michigan
SAH hosts a new opportunity for the 2019 Annual International Conference in Providence: a working session to help SAH members identify and discuss new approaches to our work. The SAH Colloquium 2019 provides a flexible framework in which scholars at all levels can highlight current and emerging challenges to the study of the built environment, presenting them in short formats for debate and discussion. We seek responses to emerging issues, to help us collectively gauge how SAH members are meeting current challenges to our field and to constructed environments and society more generally. We also seek to explore new avenues for architectural history in light of rapid change throughout the worlds of research and scholarship as well as the context in which research, scholarship, and pedagogy currently sit. Please submit your proposals for a workshop presentation (followed by discussion) on challenges to architectural history at the 2019 Providence meeting.
To take part in this initiative, please submit a brief abstract (250 words) and CV by March 1, 2019, to Christopher Kirbabas (CKirbabas@sah.org). Please mark the subject line of your email “Vectors of Change 2019.” Details about the length of presentation and the final format of the seminar will be shared after the submissions are received.
