CfP: SAHGB 2018 Annual Symposium. London, 9 June 2018

Call for Papers: SAHGB 2018 Annual Symposium. London, 9 June 2018.

The SAHGB Annual Symposium, open to scholars at all career stages and of all periods and disciplines, will examine the aftermath and legacy of the Great War in relation to architectural history. The Society is grateful for the support of the 20s30s Network, a transdisciplinary network of scholars rethinking British interwar history.
The Symposium will consider how the War directly impacted architectural design and discourse, as well as what role designers and practitioners played in shaping the post-war period. In doing so, the Symposium will provide an opportunity for architectural historians to demonstrate how methodologically the built environment, broadly conceived, can be placed in, and contribute to, wider urban, cultural, social and political histories of the period.
The full call for papers is available here.
Proposals comprising a 300-word abstract for papers of 15 minutes should be sent to the Symposium Convenor, Neal Shasore, by 10am, Monday 30 October 2017. Notices of acceptance or rejection will be sent out as soon as possible thereafter.
