    Can you believe it's already February! Here is your monthly thread for events and deadlines. Remember, in order to make sure we are focused on discussion all deadline information should go in this thread.

    We have a few from the National Trust that I'll share in a moment but wanted to get this started!

    Submittals for poster proposals at "Architectural Plastics & Polymer Composites in the 21st Century: Design & Preservation of Contemporary & Historic Architecture" – a  March 28-29 conference at MIT – can be accepted until February 15, 2020. Posters can be on research involving performance, detailing, specification, use, care, or repair of plastics or polymer composites used in the construction/fabrication of architecture or artistic works or can detail case histories of polymeric material usage in modern or traditional building façades, cladding, canopies, or glazing; in bridges and other structures; or in decorative or structural components. A poster presentation is one 30" x 40" board or two 20" x 30" boards. Poster proposals should be sent to Susan E. Schur, Hon. AIA, FAPT, Conference Chair, at ses_tec_con@msn.com. Information on the conference (organized by Technology & Conservation, the Boston Society of Architects' Historic Resources Committee, and Prof. Goulthorpe, MIT Dept. of Architecture) is available online at: https://www.architects.org/knowledge-communities/historic-resources-committee  and when that web page appears, click the "Mark your calendars..." line.

    Online information is available at:
    https://www.architects.org/knowledge-communities/historic-resources-committee...and once on this web page, click on the "Mark your calendars ..." line
    This international meeting, organized by Technology & Conservation, the Boston Society of Architects' Historic Resources Committee, and Prof. Mark Goulthorpe, MIT Department of Architecture, will provide in-depth information on: • currently used plastic and polymer composites for buildings, bridges, and other architectural structure applications, as well as for artistic works, along with an historic perspective on the use of polymeric materials • potential of carbon-polymer composites  • energy aspects including the role of windows, skylights, and translucent building components  • fire resistance behavior  • health and safety implications  • durability, life cycle, and sustainability • new methods of fabrication • performance and evaluation • meeting historic regulations and modern standards • planning and implementing approaches to the conservation/restoration of architecture and works of art  that utilize polymeric material in their construction. In addition, a number of innovative case histories of structures incorporating plastics – such as stadiums, religious buildings, cultural and recreational facilities, educational and government buildings, bridges, transportation centers,and residential complexes – will be detailed.
    All of the sessions are designed to offer conference attendees valuable insights into the performance and sustainability of plastics and polymer composites in specific environments . . . and the appropriate selection, specification, use, and maintenance of these materials for existing and new buildings, other structures, building components, and artistic works. Continuing education credits will be available.

    Help us complete the Distinctive Destinations map by the end of the month. Distinctive Destinations is a program by the National Trust that highlights diverse historic sites across the country that help illustrate the breadth and depth of the American story. BUT we're missing sites from several states--Kansas, Arkansas, Idaho, Utah, and West Virginia.

    Help us complete the map by March 1 and recommend a site today!

    Note, if you're not from one of those states you certainly can submit a site too.

    Thanks,
    Colleen

    Heritage -- who owns it, how do we use it, and who decides? The John Nicholas Brown Center for Public Humanities and Cultural Heritage at Brown University announces that registration is now open for the fifth annual Hacking Heritage Unconference in Providence, Rhode Island on March 7.  This participant-led unconference is open to anyone with an interest in exploring questions about community history, heritage and preservation in an open and dynamic format.  Session proposals can be discussions, but they can also be community art-making projects, group walks, or space for collaboration with new partners on a preservation or heritage project.  All participants are welcome to submit proposals online on the event website or at the event.  Registration deadline is March 1 for those who would like to have lunch provided with registration; walk-ins may participate, but should plan to bring lunch.  ¿Hablas español? Los participantes pueden proponer sesiones en español. Algunas sesiones también pueden tener traductores voluntarios.  Check out the event website to register, propose a session, and for more information: brown.edu/hackingheritage.  Hope to see you there!
