    Join US/ICOMOS at Noon EDT Sept 10 for the free Webinar "World Heritage at Risk: Chaco Culture National Historical Park."

    The U.S. Bureau of Land Management has proposed increased oil and gas leasing in the San Juan Basin where World Heritage Site Chaco Culture National Historical Park is located. In this webinar, our expert panel of presenters will speak about:
    • the significance of Chaco and its surrounding lands to the Puebloan people and to the United States;
    • the Universal Value for which Chaco Culture is inscribed on the World Heritage List;
    • How increased oil and gas extraction in Chaco's immediate vicinity will impact the World Heritage Site and the landscape around it, sacred to Native America groups; and
    • What can be done to stop this development, including guidance for how to submit comments to the U.S. Bureau of Land Management before the September 25 deadline.

    An opportunity for questions and answers from the online audience will follow. This webinar is free to members and the public, but we encourage you to make a contribution to US/ICOMOS in support of our work.

    Lot's happening at SAH this month!

    The Society of Architectural Historians is accepting proposals for SAH 2021 Virtual Programs to be presented after the SAH 74th Annual International Conference in Montréal on dates/times between May 3–28, 2021. These programs will complement the regular conference programming and should differ from the paper sessions in both topic and organization. Submissions that address the current conditions of research, teaching, and scholarship are encouraged. Submit a proposal by September 14, 2020.

    SAH is accepting applications for Membership Grants for Emerging Professionals. These awards are intended for emerging scholars, regardless of age or employment status, who are new to the field of architectural history or its related disciplines. The award consists of a one-year digital SAH Individual membership. Emerging scholars who are adjuncts or unemployed are encouraged to apply. Apply by September 15, 2020.

    On September 22, SAH will present Shelley McNamara and Yvonne Farrell, co-founders of Grafton Architects, in conversation with Kathleen James-Chakraborty. Free for SAH members; $20 non-members.

    The SAH Nominating Committee seeks nominations and self-nominations for two officer positions of Treasurer and Secretary. As two of five officers with full voting rights on the Executive Committee and the Board, these positions are among the most important in SAH; the other officers on the Executive Committee are the President, First Vice President and Second Vice President. In close collaboration with the SAH Board and staff, the Executive Committee governs the Society, proposes policies and programs, and provides service to the membership. Serving in these capacities offers an opportunity to shape the Society's and the profession's future. Submit a nomination by September 30, 2020.

    SAH will present the webinar Disability Studies and Architectural History on October 29, 2020. Presenters and participants will consider key concepts in research and pedagogical methods for integrating histories of disability and efforts to pursue disability justice in architecture. The discussion highlights the importance of disability activism as it relates to design. Registration is free and open to the public.

    #DismantlePreservation: Let's Keep Talking presents "Support Emerging Professionals" - Sept. 24 @ 2pm ET

    As the field assesses how the practice can shift to better represent our communities, we must also ask ourselves how we can meaningfully cultivate and foster cultural resource workers. Internships, fellowships, scholarships, etc. all exist in our toolkits, but these tools should be reevaluated to better encourage people to consider pursuing a career in cultural resources or to feel supported and empowered to start a career in this field.

    "Support Emerging Professionals" panelists will delve into their experiences managing programs that foster the next generation of cultural resource workers and how being supported by these programs shaped their careers. Whether your organization is looking to launch a new program or assessing how current offerings could be enhanced, you'll benefit from attending this session.

    So many great events/news happening this month!
    Just a reminder that applications for the PastForward Diversity Scholarship Program are due September 16. Due to the online nature of the conference this year (Oct 27-30) and our partnership with the National Park Service, we're able to welcome 200 scholars at PastForward Online 2020!
    We're really excited about this, AND we're hoping that some members of the Connect community will apply to be a mentor! The plan is that each mentor would have 3 scholars to guide through their PastForward experience and serve as a touch point leading up to the event. So we need quite a few mentors!!
    You can apply to be a scholar or a mentor online.
    Thanks,
    Colleen

    For September, I am sharing Preservation Buffalo Niagara's Fall 2020 Quarterly Newsletter https://preservationbuffaloniagara.org/quarterly-newsletters/ which gives a great overview of activity from late May through early September in the Buffalo-Niagara/western New York State region.  The front page feature "Toward an Anti-Racist Preservation Movement" is especially instructive on what can be done and what needs to be done in preservation.  The link is to a drop down menu, so just select Newsletters from https://preservationbuffaloniagara.org/ and then select Quarterly and the Fall issue will be the first one to load.

    happy reading! thanks, lp
