IAS at the Society of Architectural Historians (SAH)

Each year, the IAS seeks ideas for a sponsored session at the annual conference of the Society of Architectural Historians (SAH). This conference is geared for architectural historians, art historians, architects, preservationists, landscape architects, urban planners, nonprofits, and civic leaders. IAS sponsorship favors—but does not guarantee—inclusion in the SAH program. Members interested in putting together a panel on any topic of Italian architecture should send a brief abstract (500 words max), session title, a short list of potential or desired speakers (they need not be confirmed), the name of the chair(s) with email addresses and affiliation, and a one-page CV to the IAS Program Committee Chair. The annual deadline is December 1See our submission guidelines for eligibility requirements and instructions to propose a session for IAS at SAH.

Current Conference

70th Annual Conference, Glasgow, Scotland, 7-11 June 2017
The Society of Architectural Historians will host its 70th Annual International Conference in Glasgow, Scotland, 7–11 June 2017. Meeting in Glasgow reflects the increasingly international focus of the Society and its conference, and we hope SAH members from all over the world will join us in Scotland’s largest city, world-renowned for its outstanding architectural heritage. This is the first time that SAH has met outside North America since 1973, when it planned a joint meeting in Cambridge with the Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain.

The IAS is sponsoring the session “Rethinking Medieval Rome: Architecture and Urbanism” at the 2017 IAS, organized by Marius B. Hauknes (Johns Hopkins University) and Alison Locke Perchuk (California State University Channel Islands). Read abstract
