European Architectural History Network Conference 2020

Call for Session and Roundtable Proposals

The European Architectural History Network is delighted to announce its next biannual meeting at the University of Edinburgh, UK, 10th -13th June 2020.  In accordance with EAHN’s mission, the meeting aims to increase the visibility of the discipline of architectural history, to foster transnational, interdisciplinary and multicultural approaches to the study of the built environment, and to facilitate the exchange of research in the field.  EAHN is a European organisation, but its intellectual scope is global, and the meeting welcomes proposals on any architectural historical topic.  As well as topics on any aspect of the built environment, proposals on landscape and urban history are also very welcome, along with proposals dealing with the theories, methodologies and historiographies of architectural history.

Proposals are sought in two basic formats: (1) a Session, and (2) a Roundtable debate.  A Session should plan for 4-5 paper presentations, with a respondent, and time for dialogue and discussion at the end.  A Roundtable debate should be an organised discussion between panel members, and the format would suit topics of particular urgency, or contemporary relevance.  Roundtables should also aim to activate audience discussion as far as possible. Sessions and Roundtables may be chaired by more than one person. At this stage, only the proposals for Sessions and Roundtables are required. A separate call for papers (CFP) for successful Sessions and Roundtables will be issued in April 2019.

Anyone wishing to chair a Session or a Roundtable debate at EAHN2020 are invited to submit proposals by 31stDecember, 2018. Chairs should make clear whether their proposal is a Session, or a Roundtable. 

Please note that EAHN is self-funding, and chairs are expected to provide all their conference expenses, including travel and accommodation.
