3rd PhD Colloquium

July 6,2020

The SAHANZ PhD Colloquium for 2020, will be held as an online event on 6 July 2020 and to be hosted by the Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning and ACAHUCH, at the University of Melbourne. Take the opportunity to hear about the latest research from graduate students in architectural history and urban and cultural heritage from across the Asia-Pacific region, and register. Each of the day’s three sessions will have presentations from graduate researchers followed by a panel discussion with academics discussing each presentation. Presenters come from institutions across Australia and abroad, whilst panellists include University of Melbourne academics and national and international academics who are experts in the panel fields. Presenters will have the opportunity to share their research with fellow postgraduates, and will gain critical feedback from mid-career and senior academics who are experts in a broad range of national and international historical and heritage fields. The call for abstracts is now closed and registration for participants and attendees is open. *Participants must be currently enrolled in a PhD, in the fields of architecture, landscape or urban history / heritage or related field of inquiry. We welcome a wide range of contexts and historical / theoretical approaches. **Participants must be confirmed in their PhD degree (i.e. topic and candidacy accepted by host institution – usually at some point within the first year of study). Abstracts of 500 words outlining a 15 minute presentation on one of the following aspects of PhD research work: • The research methodology being pursued and how it relates to the research question and topic of inquiry; • A key theoretical / historical framework or context that is being forged for the research; • A particular case study / aspect of fieldwork program and how it is exploring the research question and topic of inquiry. The format of the day will include generous time for formal and informal discussion and sessions on research methods. Therefore the number of abstracts accepted will be limited and assessed on their quality, and on achieving a balance of topics and approaches. Due Thursday 21st November, 2019: 1. A 500 word abstract addressing one of the above options which relate to the PhD research thesis; 2. A brief biography of 200 words including university affiliation and supervisors and any related publications. 3. A brief statement outlining what stage of progress the PhD is at – i.e post-confirmation year one; year two fieldwork; year three full draft etc. Contact ACAHUCH Centre Coordinator  Theo Blankey Colloquium committee: Professor Hannah Lewi, Professor Anoma Pieris, Dr Annmarie Brennan, Dr James Lesh and Dr Macarena de la Vega.
