Call for Papers: 2019 Buell Dissertation Colloquium. New York, 3-4 May 2019

The Temple Hoyne Buell Center for the Study of American Architecture invites submissions for its biennial Dissertation Colloquium, to be held on 3-4 May 2019, at Columbia University in the City of New York. This event brings together a select group of doctoral students from diverse institutional and disciplinary backgrounds working on dissertation topics related to the history, theory, and criticism of American architecture, urbanism, and landscape.
Ten to twelve students from universities worldwide will be invited to present a twenty-minute talk drawn from their dissertation research. The presentation is to be based on a self-contained chapter or portion of the student’s dissertation research, and should not be an overview or synthesis of the dissertation as a whole. “American” is construed to mean any part or aspect of the American continents. Comparative and cross-disciplinary approaches are encouraged.
For further information, write buellcenter@columbia.edu or consult buellcenter.columbia.edu, where past colloquium participants and topics are listed.
Please send electronic submissions (no larger than 3MB) in PDF format to buellcenter@columbia.edu, by Friday, 4 January 2019.
The call for papers is also available here.
