CfP: SAHANZ PhD Colloquium 2020. Melbourne, 6 July 2020

Call for Papers: SAHANZ PhD Colloquium 2020. Melbourne, 6 July 2020

Abstracts are invited for participation in the SAHANZ PhD Colloquium for 2020, to be held on 6 July 2020 and to be hosted by the Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning and ACAHUCH, at the University of Melbourne.
This one day event is being held in collaboration with the SAUH Asia Built Environments stream at the Asian Studies Association of Australia biennial conference and participants will have the option to attend that conference at student rates.
Participants will have the opportunity to share their research with fellow postgraduates, and will gain critical feedback from mid-career and senior academics who are experts in a broad range of national and international historical and heritage fields.
Participants must be currently enrolled in a PhD, in the fields of architecture, landscape or urban history / heritage or related field of inquiry. We welcome a wide range of contexts and historical / theoretical approaches. Participants must be confirmed in their PhD degree (i.e. topic and candidacy accepted by host institution – usually at some point within the first year of study).
Abstracts of 500 words outlining a 15 minute presentation on one of the following aspects of PhD research work:
• The research methodology being pursued and how it relates to the research question and topic of inquiry;
• A key theoretical / historical framework or context that is being forged for the research;
• A particular case study / aspect of fieldwork program and how it is exploring the research question and topic of inquiry.
The format of the day will include generous time for formal and informal discussion and sessions on research methods. Therefore the number of abstracts accepted will be limited and assessed on their quality, and on achieving a balance of topics and approaches.
There are no financial bursaries available for assistance in travel costs so this should be sought with candidates’ own universities. However, there will be no registration fee, catering will be provided and free entry to the SAUH-Asia/ASAA keynote on July 7th.
Due Thursday 21 November, 2019:
1. A 500 word abstract addressing one of the above options which relate to the PhD research thesis;
2. A brief biography of 200 words including university affiliation and supervisors and any related publications.
3. A brief statement outlining what stage of progress the PhD is at – i.e post-confirmation year one; year two fieldwork; year three full draft etc.
Send abstracts to Lizzie Nicholson
Send queries to Hannah Lewi
Colloquium committee: Professor Hannah Lewi, Professor Julie Willis, Professor Paul Walker, Dr Stuart King and Dr James Lesh.
