Call for Virtual Roundtables at the SAH 2022 Annual International Conference

by SAH News | Oct 20, 2021

The Society of Architectural Historians is accepting proposals for virtual programs such as roundtables, debates, and book discussions. Drawing on the success of past virtual roundtables, SAH plans to offer roundtables in a virtual format to promote accessibility and broaden the potential audience. 

These programs will be presented virtually after the SAH 2022 Annual International Conference on dates/times between May 9 and May 31, 2022. These programs will complement the in-person conference programming and should differ from the paper sessions in both topic and organization. Roundtables usually consist of six or fewer participants, including moderators, and provide active, in-depth discussion on current conditions of research, teaching, and scholarship.

If you would like to hold a virtual roundtable, you must apply to be considered. This includes those organizing programs that have been traditionally held at the in-person conference. The deadline to submit a proposal is December 1, 2021. All proposals will be reviewed by the Conference Chair, with confirmations sent out after January 14, 2022. If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Christopher Kirbabas by email at

Please note the following:

  • This form is a request and does not guarantee availability for every applicant. All proposals will be reviewed by the Conference Chair.
  • If selected for a virtual roundtable, SAH will work with you to select the best date/time post-conference between May 9 and May 31, 2022.
