SAHANZ call for EAHN and SAH session proposals

The Society calls for session proposals for the 2022 EAHN and SAH conferences, to be held in the Madrid (Spain) and Pittsburg (US) respectively.

As part of our partnership agreement with both SAH and EAHN, SAHANZ is able to put forward a session proposal to the 2020 EAHN and SAH conferences. We invite submissions from interested SAHANZ members for consideration by the SAHANZ Committee.

The aim of the Committee in offering to review proposals is to assist members in their preparation and framing as well as help to identify topics of mutual interest between SAHANZ and EAHN and SAH. This offer does not preclude members making their own direct submissions of course but is intended to take advantage of opportunities provided by our partner agreements.

Session proposals (of no more than 400 words) should be sent by 30 November 2020 to the SAHANZ Secretary (secretary@sahanz.net). Please make sure to identify which conference (EAHN or SAH) you are submitting a session proposal for.

For more information, please consult the EAHN and SAH conference websites.

Parlour Lab

We are delighted to announce a new online event series, Parlour Lab, which brings research discussions in architecture and the built environment to the wider professional community.

Parlour Lab is presented in collaboration with Parlour, and The University of Queensland‘s School of Architecture.  The aim is to bridge the gap between practice and research, to provide a platform for researchers to speak to new audiences and an opportunity for the world of practice to engage with research.  

Sessions held Monday lunchtimes

Each month two guest researchers will talk about their research via a short presentation followed by a Q&A led by the conveners of the series Macarena de la Vega de León and Kali Marnane.

Watch Kali and Macarena chat about the idea here and get in touch if you would like to be a part of this series and share your research.
