July 7,2022

Abstracts are invited for participation in the SAHANZ PhD Colloquium for 2022, to be held on Thursday 7 July 2022 and hosted by the School of Built Environment within the Faculty of Arts, Design and Architecture (ADA), UNSW Sydney, NSW.

This one-day event will take place in hybrid mode, and there will be no registration fee. Participants, however, will need to be student members of the Society at the time of the colloquium.

Participants 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.
In this regard:

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 10-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 programs and how it explores the research question and topic of inquiry.

This one-day event will take place in hybrid mode (online and in-person).
The format of the day will include enough time for formal and informal discussion of papers, and sessions on the topics above. Therefore, the number of abstracts accepted will be limited to 18, assessed on their quality and on achieving a balance of topics and approaches.

A typical session will be 10 minutes presentation + 20 minutes feedback.

Submission date: Wednesday, 1 June 2022

A 500-word abstract addressing one of the above options which relate to the PhD research thesis

A brief biography of not more than 200 words including university affiliation and supervisors and any related publications

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.
