The Society of Architectural Historians will host its 72nd Annual International Conference in Providence, Rhode Island, 24-28 April 2019. Architectural historians, art historians, architects, museum professionals, and preservationists from around the world will convene to present new research on the history of the built environment and explore the architecture and landscape of Providence and nearby areas. The conference will include 37 paper sessions, roundtable and panel discussions, architecture tours, workshops, networking receptions, special events, and more.
The Society of Architectural Historians is now accepting abstracts for its 72nd Annual International Conference. Please submit an abstract no later than 11:59 p.m. CDT on 5 June 2018, to one of the 34 thematic sessions, the Graduate Student Lightning Talks or the Open Sessions. SAH encourages submissions from architectural, landscape, and urban historians, museum curators, preservationists, independent scholars, architects, scholars in related fields, and members of SAH chapters and partner organizations.
The thematic sessions have been selected to cover topics across all time periods and architectural styles. If your research topic is not a good fit for one of the thematic sessions, please submit your abstract to the Open Sessions; two Open Sessions are available for those whose research topic does not match any of the thematic sessions. Please note that those submitting papers for the Graduate Student Lightning Talks must be graduate students at the time the talk is being delivered (24-28 April 2019).  Instructions and deadlines for submitting to thematic sessions and Open Sessions are the same.
