The Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain (SAHGB) invites proposals for the 2018 Architectural History Workshop. This is our annual event for Postgraduate Students and Early Career Scholars to share and develop their ideas; it aims to provide an informal space away from your own institution where you can discuss, debate, practice and enjoy the company of like-minded researchers working within the history of the built environment, broadly conceived.
We invite participation in a number of ‘lightning’ rounds, where contributors are asked to speak for no more than ten minutes in any appropriate format that engagingly explores and presents your research. This research can be at any stage from a research proposal that you wish to talk about, issues arising from your research, final work as you write-up, post-doctoral reflections, or anything in-between. Speakers from previous events are particularly welcome to update us on the progress of their work.
The event is limited to Postgraduate students (full-time or part-time) and Early Career Scholars (those who have completed their PhDs within the last 5 years). We particularly encourage participation from:
We are interested in all periods and regions of study, and the full range of methodological approaches to architectural history. The society welcomes submissions of work relating to the history of the built environment from all disciplines, including but by no means limited to:

Alongside presentations, the Workshop will feature a session on ‘Careers in Architectural History’ presented by a panel of invited speakers from museums, heritage bodies, architectural practices, and more.

If you are interested in making a contribution, please complete the submission form. The closing date for applications is Friday 16 February 2018. The result of all applications will be communicated by Tuesday 20 February, with confirmation from the speakers requested by Thursday 22 February.
