Call for Proposals: Community Engagement and Social Justice in Architectural History

  • Dates: 26 Mar – 16 Apr, 2021

Call for Proposals from Emerging Scholars 

Community Engagement and Social Justice in Architectural History 

As part of the Society of Architectural Historians 2021 Virtual Conference, The SAH Asian American & Diasporic Architectural History (AA&D) Affiliate Group will present a roundtable and workshop titled Community Engagement and Social Justice in Architectural History on Tuesday, May 4, 12:00–1:30 pm CDT. Presenters and panelists will discuss practical and ethical challenges they face in doing community-engaged research, scholarship and teaching.

AA&D co-chairs and moderators Gail Dubrow and Sean McPherson invite proposals by emerging scholars with an interest in joining our workshop.  Emerging scholars will share a 10-minute presentation of their work, as well as one question or issue for further discussion with our panel of community-engaged scholars and community activists that aim to advance social justice in communities dealing with systematic inequalities: Lynne Horiuchi, Arijit Sen, Mary Corbin Sies, and community members.

Interested participants should submit a proposal of 1–2 pages to s1mcpherson@bridgew.edu by Friday, April 16, outlining a project you will share with the group, as well as one preliminary question about community-engaged scholarship and teaching you would like to discuss with the panel.
