The day will be broken into a series of “lightning-round” talks, in which students will be given ten minutes to present their research, followed by a brief discussion period. Student talks will be interspersed with panel discussions focusing on specific themes in architectural research and professional development, led by experienced practitioners in the field of architectural history, conservation, and curatorship, including Richard Anderson (University of Edinburgh), Timothy Brittain-Catlin (Kent School of Architecture), Kathryn Ferry (Freelance writer and scholar), Hannah Malone (Magdalene College, University of Cambridge), Chris Miele (Montagu Evans), and Olivia Horsfall Turner (V&A + RIBA Architecture Partnership). These speakers will discuss their personal experiences while providing useful insight for navigating the worlds of research, publication, and architectural practice. The day will end with a keynote address by Professor Iain Boyd Whyte from the University of Edinburgh.
