Call for Participation (archived)
Closed: April 15
Offers of contributions to our first Architectural History Workshop are now invited. This is the new name of our former Graduate Student Research Forum but the purpose is unchanged and it now takes place in our permanent London base for the event, The Gallery, Cowcross Street, London.
The Workshop invites various forms of participation to its ‘lightning’ rounds. Contributors are invited to speak for ten minutes either as a short developed paper, discursive ramble, thematic exploration, or whatever, that explores and presents your PhD research…warts and all. 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 and anything in-between. Speakers from the predecessor events are particularly welcome to up-date us on the progress of their work.
The Workshop provides an informal safe-zone away from your own institution where you can discuss, debate, practice and enjoy the company of like-minded researchers taking the same journey as you in Architectural History. The event is limited to PhD students (full - or part-time) – intending, actual, or recently graduated – a few invited guests drawn largely from Early Career Scholars, and the Society’s own funded PhD Scholars. Interspersed between student presentations will be career-focused sessions by invited speakers. This is primarily a student-led event - by students and for students - hosted by the Society through its Education Officer and student conveners, Kieran Mahon of University College London (The Bartlett), and Matthew Wells of the Royal College of Art/Victoria and Albert Museum.
