Continuing with a monthly post for you to share your events/deadlines/upcoming activities in one spot for January.
Please feel free to share in this thread any relevant events, deadlines, or resources that are available the month of January. Even if your event is very geographically specific, I think there's value in all of us seeing what's out there and what people are doing-I know I find it interesting and helpful to learn what's going on out there!
I'll get it started … I always have something to share here!
The fine print!
* The community is meant to be a place for conversation and dialogue, sharing of ideas and asking of questions, I certainly want it to be a comfortable place where you're not bombarded with promotional material, I also want you to be able to share some great events you're hosting or relevant material/resources that you have available. So to that end each month I'll start a thread for you to share events/deadlines/resources that are available in the coming month. Of course, we want the material and events to be relevant and make sense for the community members, but if we all include them in one post, we won't degrade the integrity of the community (per the Code of Conduct we don't want this to be a place where people sell their products or services, but if you have an event coming up that you think people would be interested in or have a call for ideas we can collect those all in one post every month). I also think by sharing events it may spark discussion or generate ideas for things that you may be considering doing.If you have questions of what would be appropriate, just send me a message. And, please don't post jobs here-we have a jobs board for that!
Nominations for the National Preservation Awards (which will be given at an awards ceremony at PastForward in Miami). Awards include:
We are now accepting applications for the 2020 list of America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places. Deadline for submissions is Wednesday, February 5 at 11:59 p.m. EST.
Since 1988, the National Trust has used its list of America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places to raise awareness about the threats facing some of our nation's greatest treasures. The list, which has identified more than 300 sites to date, has been so successful in galvanizing preservation efforts that less than five percent of these sites have been lost.When evaluating a potential site for inclusion on the list, we consider a range of factors, including its significance, whether there is a local group engaged in its preservation, the urgency of the threat the site faces, and potential solutions to that threat. Sites with a connection to women's history are particularly encouraged to apply this year.
We strongly encourage you to contact National Trust staff via email to discuss your site prior to applying.
Since the principal purpose of the SAH annual conference is to inform attendees of the general state of research in architectural history and related disciplines, session proposals covering every time period and all aspects of the built environment, including landscape and urban history, are encouraged.
Sessions may be theoretical, methodological, thematic, interdisciplinary, pedagogical, revisionist or documentary in premise and ambition and have broadly conceived or more narrowly focused subjects. Sessions that embrace cross-cultural, transnational and/or non-Western topics are particularly welcome. In every case, the subject should be clearly defined in critical and historical terms.Proposals will be selected on the basis of merit and the need to create a well-balanced program. Topics exploring the architecture of Montréal and the greater region are encouraged.
