CfP: Call for Sessions: 2021 SAH Annual International Conference. Montreal, 14-18 April 2021

Call for Sessions: 2021 SAH Annual International Conference. Montreal, 14-18 April 2021

The Society of Architectural Historians will offer a total of 36 paper sessions at its 2021 Annual International Conference in Montréal, Québec, Canada. The Society invites individuals and those representing SAH chapters and partner organizations to submit a session proposal for the Montréal conference. SAH membership is required to chair or present research at the annual conference; non-members who are selected to chair a session will be required to join SAH in August 2020 when conference registration opens for Session Chairs and Speakers.
Since the principal purpose of the SAH annual conference is to inform attendees of the general state of research in architectural history and related disciplines, session proposals covering every time period and all aspects of the built environment, including landscape and urban history, are encouraged.
Sessions may be theoretical, methodological, thematic, interdisciplinary, pedagogical, revisionist or documentary in premise and ambition and have broadly conceived or more narrowly focused subjects. Sessions that embrace cross-cultural, transnational and/or non-Western topics are particularly welcome. In every case, the subject should be clearly defined in critical and historical terms.
Proposals will be selected on the basis of merit and the need to create a well-balanced program. Topics exploring the architecture of Montréal and the greater region are encouraged.
Session proposals must be submitted online by 11:59 p.m. CST, Tuesday, 14 January 2020.
