CALL FOR PAPERS: Vernacular Architecture Forum 2018 Annual Meeting, A Shared Heritage: Urban and Rural Experience on the Banks of the Potomac, May 2-5, 2018, in Alexandria, Virginia.
DEADLINE – OCTOBER 30, 2017
The Vernacular Architecture Forum invites paper proposals for its 37th Annual Conference, A Shared Heritage: Urban and Rural Experience on the Banks of the Potomac, May 2-5, 2018, in Alexandria, Virginia. Papers may address vernacular and everyday buildings, sites, or cultural landscapes worldwide. Submissions on all relevant topics are welcome but we encourage papers exploring mid-Atlantic American themes exploring agriculture, maritime activities, industrialization, urbanization, suburbanization, as well as themes such ethnic identity, religious expression, and the creation of vacation and recreation landscapes. Additionally, the VAF is launching a multi-year program of inquiry into the distinctiveness of the VAF and the vernacular architecture movement. To this end, we encourage papers that consider this field over time. How does the wide range of VAF projects (tours, guidebooks, book and article awards, field schools, annual conference papers, publicati
ons, etc.) demonstrate how our questions, concerns, and methods have changed and evolved? Where do we see evidence of that history in our current work, and what might our future look like? Proposals might focus on a particular building type (i.e. houses, barns), a research strategy (fieldwork), political or theoretical convictions (Gender, Marxism, the Everyday, etc.), or particular approaches to presenting our work and engaging colleagues and the public.
Students and young professionals may apply for the Pamela H. Simpson Presenter’s Fellowships offering support of up to $500 to presenting papers at VAF’s annual conference. Lire suite…
