The Vernacular Architecture Forum is soliciting paper proposals from academics, consultants, and other scholars for presentation at its Annual Meeting to be held June 14-17, 2006 in New York City. The conference theme is "City Building." Papers may address any aspect of vernacular architecture and the cultural landscape from any geographic region worldwide. We encourage submissions on the conference theme such as: urban vernaculars forms; speculative development; place making and place marking; the effects of governmental regualtion; preservation and/or public history. We also encourage proposals for complete sessions, roundtable discussions, and any innovative means that facilitates scholarly discourse.
Proposals my be for a 20-minute paper, or for a 10-minute "work in progress" report. In either case, papers should be theoretical or analytical in nature, rather than descriptive. Travel fellowships are available. See Special Programs at http:vernaculararchitectureforum.org
DEADLINE: October 15, 2005.
