Sixth Annual Student Symposium on the Built Environment
September 17, 2011, University of St. Thomas, Owens Science Center, 3M Auditorium
The Minnesota Chapter of the Society of Architectural Historians (MNSAH) is pleased to announce our sixth annual student symposium on the built environment. As a part of its mission, MNSAH is pleased to promote the work of undergraduate and graduate students exploring topics in architectural history, landscape history, and the history of the urban environment.
PROPOSAL FORMAT: Proposals can address any aspect of the built environment, from the high style to the vernacular, and they can be from any time period and location. Topics on Minnesota’s built environment are particularly welcome. Papers should be analytical and theoretical rather than descriptive in nature, and they should represent an original contribution to the history of the built environment. Abstracts should be no longer than 300 words in length and must include the author’s name, paper title, academic institution and graduate or undergraduate status. On a separate page please include a brief biography or curriculum vitae, as well as your name, address, email, telephone and best way to contact you over the summer months. Proposals are limited to current students and to those who will graduate in the spring of 2011. If your paper is selected you will be asked to give a 15-20 minute digital presentation. You must also be a member of MNSAH or become one in order to participate at the symposium. The student rate is $20.
DEADLINES: June 15, 2011 for proposals. Authors of papers chosen will be notified by June 30, 2011. Accepted papers must be submitted to the conference chair by August 30, 2011, with a final copy available (digitally) by September 17, 2011. Authors shall retain copyright but shall agree that the paper will be deposited in the MNSAH chapter archives for scholarly use.
Please send your proposal and biography/CV as two separate Word document attachments to an email. This email should be forwarded to Dr. Victoria Young at firstname.lastname@example.org and questions can be directed to Dr. Young at 651-962-5855.
