Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain (Call for Papers)

The Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain will host its third annual Graduate Student Research Forum on Saturday, 11 April 2015 at the University of Edinburgh. The Forum is a student-led event offering postgraduate students in architectural history an opportunity to present their research while engaging with others studying and working in the field. The aim of the Forum is to break away from more traditional conference models by creating a dynamic and friendly environment where students, established academics and professionals can exchange knowledge, skills and experiences
The day will be broken into a series of “lightning-round” talks, in which students will be given ten minutes to present their research, followed by a brief discussion period. Student talks will be interspersed with panel discussions focusing on specific themes in architectural research and professional development, led by experienced practitioners in the field of architectural history, conservation, and curatorship, including James Simpson (Simpson & Brown Architects), Richard Anderson (University of Edinburgh), Timothy Brittain-Catlin (Kent School of Architecture), and Olivia Horsfall Turner (V&A + RIBA Architecture Partnership). These speakers will discuss their personal experiences while providing useful insight for navigating the worlds of research, publication, and architectural practice. The day will end with a keynote address by Professor Iain Boyd Whyte from the University of Edinburgh.
Proposals are welcomed from students pursuing postgraduate research in any aspect of architectural history. Papers may cover the entire scope of a research project or focus on a particular aspect of it. We encourage submissions that present work in progress, as well as more polished research. Each talk should be accompanied by a visual presentation composed of a careful selection of key images.
This year’s student organizers are Iñigo Basarrate, Laura Bowie, Andrew Horn, and Emily Turner. Please submit your proposals (maximum 300 words) to our website (sahgbgraduateforum2015.weebly.com) no later than 21 January 2015.
