Since 2010, EAHN has organized a major international conference every second year. The biennial conferences have proved extremely popular and have played a leading role in consolidating and promoting architectural history research in Europe and overseas. The past conferences (Guimarães (2010), Brussels (2012), Turin (2014) and Dublin 2016)) have drawn 200-300 participants, from up to 40 different countries. The 2018 Meeting will be held in Tallinn.
Any scholarly recognized institution can apply to host a biennial EAHN International Meeting. A proposal (max. 750 words) identifying your interests should include the following detailed information:

  • Name of the Conference Chair and institute or department within the institution that is carrying out the conference.
  • Exemplify the institution’s possibilities to organize this academic event. Mention experience, academic, administrative and logistic capacities and personnel.
