The day was broken into a series of “lightning-round” talks, in which students were given fifteen minutes to present their research, followed by a brief discussion period. Student talks were 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 discussed their personal experiences while providing useful insight for navigating the worlds of research, publication, and architectural practice. The day ended with a keynote address by Professor Iain Boyd Whyte from the University of Edinburgh.

Some images and reflections on the event:
"The quality of the papers was generally very high, and, by all accounts, everyone had a great time."
"It is very important for doctoral students to have the opportunity to present their work and talk about it in a public forum and I thought the prevailing spirit on Sat ery positive and supportive: just as it should be."
"The contributions were varied but uniformly fascinating and the panel discussions which followed and the Round Table sessions were very stimulating."
