SAHGB first student forum

The Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain (SAHGB) is pleased to announce that on 3 May 2013, it will run its first ever Graduate Student Forum, a student-led event, hosted by the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL.

SAHGB writes of the forum as follows:
It will bring together post-graduate students studying architectural history in a range of disciplines to present their research and to engage with others studying and working in the field. The aim of the Forum is to break away from more traditional conference models by creating a dynamic, friendly event where students, established educators, and professionals can readily share knowledge, skills, and experiences.

To meet these aims, the day is structured to enable a wide range and number of student presentations. Rather than conventional papers, the Forum will be built around ‘Lightning Rounds’ where students are each given 10 minutes in which to discuss their research, followed by 5 minutes of discussion. Lightning rounds will be interspersed with keynote panels led by scholars and professionals in the fields of architectural history and heritage who will discuss their own experiences of post-graduate study and the research that shaped their career paths.

Proposals are welcomed from students studying for PhDs and Masters degrees in any field of architectural history. Presentations should be visually striking, with a careful selection of key images. Participants are equally encouraged to employ imaginative visual aids such as digitally projected graphics or physical objects where appropriate.

Please send inquiries or proposals (of no more than 300 words) to the Forum’s organizers by no later than 31 January 2013:
