Call for sessions: SAH 69th Annual International Conference, Pasadena

At its 2016 Annual International Conference in Pasadena/Los Angeles, SAH will offer a total of 36 paper sessions. The Society invites its members, including graduate students and independent scholars, representatives of SAH chapters and partner organizations, as well as future members to chair a session at the conference.
Since the principal purpose of the Annual International 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. Sessions that embrace cross-cultural, trans-national and/or non-Western topics are particularly welcome. In every case, the subject should be clearly defined in critical and historiographical 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 exploring the architecture of Pasadena/Los Angeles and Southern California are encouraged. As Los Angeles serves as a global/local transportation hub, SAH also encourages international scholars to submit session proposals.
Since late submissions cannot be considered, it is recommended that proposals be submitted and their receipt confirmed well before the deadline. The Conference Co-Chair cannot be responsible for last-minute submissions that fail posting in the online portal.
Session proposals are to be submitted online by 5:00 pm CST, January 16, 2015. For submission guidelines and further information, click here.
