SAH is now accepting session proposals for its 67th Annual Conference in Austin TX, April 9-13. Session proposals are due February 15, 2013.
Since the principal purpose of the annual conference is to inform the conference attendees of the general state of research in architectural history and related disciplines, session proposals covering every period in the history of architecture and all aspects of the built environment, including landscape and urban history, are encouraged. Sessions may be theoretical, methodological, thematic, interdisciplinary, pedagogical, revisionist, or documentary in premise and have broadly conceived or more narrowly focused subjects. In every case, the subject should be clearly defined in critical and historiographic terms, and should be substantiated by a distinct body of either established or emerging scholarship.
Proposals will be selected on the basis of merit and the need to organize a well-balanced program. Topics related to the location of the conference in Austin, such as Latin America (pre-Columbian, colonial, modern), the borderlands and nineteenth-century settlement and immigration patterns, post-war development of the Sun Belt and the challenges today of assessing mid-century-era buildings and places, or architecture and water are especially encouraged, as are pre-1800 topics or those dealing with non-Western traditions. Since late submissions cannot be considered, it is recommended that proposals be submitted and their receipt confirmed well before the deadline. The General Chair cannot be responsible for last-minute submissions, electronic or otherwise, that fail to reach their destination.
