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.
